Those Were the Days


What a year!  We remember it well.  Leon was protesting and Brian was being a good student in high school.  Both had longer hair than they do now.  Leon had a beard and Brian was thinking about growing a crazy moustache-which he did later on.  Now Brian sings protest songs on his banjo and Leon wishes he had hair.  It was a tumultuous time, which is why we needed a Bridge Over Troubled Waters (top song of the year).



Saying of the Week

 It is crooked wood that shows the best sculptor.
