My son blames my wife and me for ruining his youth.

Years ago, while our son was away at college, he once complained about all the rules and regulations required to hold even a small party or event on a modern campus.

Drag racing on a road next to the huge HL&P plant off Main Street in Houston - weekend event. Had to drive a stick shift. Kids don’t have a clue today.

Each generation thinks it has the best music and best times. I remember my grandmother and Lawrence Welk and making a road trip with my family listening to big band swing music. I still like this music, but there is nothing like Hendrix, the Doors, LED Zeppelin, The Who, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, the Stones, Aerosmith, Joplin, ZZ Top .... well the list is endless.

Today, concerts and sporting events have become so expensive. It’s a shame as it limits who can afford to attend.
