No malls existed at that age for me, but I was counted on to travel the bus system on my own by ages 9 and 10 to meet Dental appointments where Parental input was not required as well as other similar occasions. By 7 grade I was expected to know the rules and run my life in and out of school accordingly. Which for the most part I did. Parents not finding out every little thing is not always a bad deal. But then too, I was the eldest of the three of us. And I learned faster than my oldest sister not to Sass Mom when she wanted us to do something. Those two would get into some verbal battles that I would never have touched. Stayed out of the middle of them for sure.
Life in the College Dorm vs. Life in the Barracks vs. Life after Marriage vs. Life no longer married. And the one constant Long hours at work every day for over 40 years.

But are the covers for those access ways chocolate covered?
Not sneakers. Sal is just getting old and his hearing is starting to go. Same location as his head might be after Rita is finished.
I lived that life for several years, then I declined to reenlist and the USAF gave me the boot, but still kept control over my activities because of my prior duties.
The starving children have moved to Africa? How did they get there from India where I was told they lived?
I honestly don’t know. I have always thought the the album was Silver Lake or something similar, but at this point I can’t even be sure that it was an ELP album. The point that he did stress with this particular piece over many of the others was that the composer was an actual trained composer, not a song writer where someone else plopped some instruments into the background. While I have always believed that it was Keith Emerson that he was talking about, I could easily be wrong.
My biggest take away from that session was that he was correct and that I was willing to admit that. As to why we both had extensive LP collections with us. We were on a 12 Month Isolated tour and there was not a lot of things to do, work, listen to AFRTS, listen to music, if you had any, substituted by those that didn’t with sit in the Club and Drink.
Got basically the same response from IBM about support for my system that we installed in 2012. They are now selling V7R4 and we are back at R1. R2 either has been dropped or is about to be dropped from support as well. Doesn’t really matter since the hardware won’t run newer versions.
