|The year of the tail fin|
I worked all summer, I really think that job kind of calmed me down and at least gave me more to do, and I got paid, how good can it get. School was just that - school, the quicker it was over was a good thing, except for the Friday night dances, I went almost every week I think, at least that's how I remember it now, fifty some years later.
Gas was up to twenty-four cents a gallon, a dozen eggs were twenty-eight cents and a new house costs about twelve thousand dollars - damned inflation!
Elvis and Love Me Tender was the number one song in 1957, followed by Hey Jealous Lover by Frank Sinatra, one of my favorites Blueberry Hill by Fats Domino and Moonlight Gambler by Frankie Lane and at number five Too Much by Elvis.
