JFK at "50"

Well, sort of.
As hard as it is for old people like me (even though I look young 🙂 to believe, today is the 50th anniversary of JFK’s inauguration. Wow — that seems so ancient for a man who was so young and who exemplified the new or Baby-Boomer generation.

Although I was a mere lad, I recall watching it on TV, but I admit I did not understand much. I also recall that it was snowing _ at least in Union City _ and that is why schools were closed.

    truth of the matter is that you skipped school to celebrate. By the way Fred, you are not that young.

  2. No, no … It was snowing

    I didn’t say I was young. I said I look young and vigorous! 🙂

  3. Come on Mark … the idea is to write something; not just send out a link! 🙂

    Good point. My prior post should have included:

    Above is a link to a bunch of never-before-seen pictures of Kennedy’s inauguration. I found them interesting to view.
