Pete that makes you older than me.
I thought I was just a bit older than you. Don't the policemen look young these days.
It was probably just my youthful exhuberance spilling over.
...And yes they do look younger. Heck, 20 years ago when I was a hoary "old" jailguard at the police college for training, a troop of rookies marched by. My comment then was "Oh my gawd, we're being protected by babies!" It's only gotten worse, only the OIC is around my age now.
C7: I remember watching Clint on wagon train, then when the reruns hit, it was oh my, that's "Dirty Harry", etc. We received our first TV (a black and white) a day or two before the first manned Mercury launch in May 1961. Until then I had to depend on neighbours for any telly watching.
My grandfather watched the last pony express rider leave Rhode Island as a child while I've seen Mars landings and incredible leaps in technological communications. We can dram with another person on the other side of the globe in realtime. That would have been inconceivable two generations back.
