Yep same generation....throw in Andy Griffith show when I was at grandmas house and MASH. I am 43 (soon to be 44) and will celebrate my 45th on the DREAM next year. Going from Georgia to Japan is a wWhole New World though. Love your report and patience and punishment. Kids these days don't quite rtelate to having it so good and easy compared to our generation...I mean what was a DVD player whet I was a kid? we didn't even have VHS....and remember the Atari 2600? Kids these days have all kinds of gadgets. Glad we have wonderful kids though. Also had it been my mom I would have had a rope tied to a life vest and been thrown off the balcony and had tp tread water the rest of the trip. Sorry toe hear you were sic.
