Topic: Nostalgic

I want to go to a time when things were great.
I wish that I could travel back in time to 1978.
I/'/d like to revisit the seventies because I loved that decade.
Back then, 8 Track tapes and records were still being played.
Songs were clean back then, now they/'/re littered with the F word.
in 1978, music meant something and vulgarity wasn/'/t what we heard.
40 years ago, we had no smart phones and no High Definition TV.
But landline phones and standard definition are just fine with me.
Video games sucked back then but I could live with an Atari.
If I could revisit 1978, I don/'/t think that I would be sorry.

Great piece..cant say that i remember much of 1978
since it was the year that i was born. But a time
with no smart phones or HD tv was how it was thru
the 80/'/s and early 90s. Once again great piece.

Oh what fun to revisit the past! Comedians were clean; if you said a curse word the show went off the air! We respectfully called them officers, not cops. A handshake was a mans bond, and the good guys always won.
You have reminded us that the boundaries which once defined us are melting away. We have no yardstick of personal success except money, and some of the wealthiest men are poor examples of humanity.
If you decide to go Randy, take us with you!
