Say what you like about hippies and their varioius shortcomings and failures, but some folks back in the day knew how to have pure, righteous,
uninhibited *fun.* No emo-ish sulking, hipster irony, and self-conscious foot-shuffling on the dance floors for these people. Let it all hang out.
Yes it's true we were sometimes not as clean as we would like to be but I never encountered any lice on my trip through my hippie years.
One thing I learned from those days of self indulgance was that moderation is the key to most everything you do.
I truely believe young people today could not survive the old hippie days.
My goodness, I went for weeks, maybe months without using a telephone or watching TV.
Yes, we had fun. Now I have to fill the truck up with my nebulizer, c-pap machine and a big bag of perscription medication. Oh, I almost forgot
that I have to have my special pillows when I leave home now.
The spirit is still there but the body isn't cooperating.
Yeah buddy, we did have fun.
