Enough of this "Older Generation" stuff, he is only 67, which means he is a baby Boomer. In 1962 He was 17. The era of Rock and Roll actually died
in 1962 (with Buddy Holly), new music appeared, modern Pop, Mods, the Beatles, Psychadelia, James Bond.......he was in the thick of things...In the
Hippy Days 1967-68, he was 21!! Free Love, the pill, cool cars (well he Lived in England, I guess not too cool).. cool motorbikes anyway and scooters,
mini skirts, no HIV......
He decided to join the Navy...probably didnt have anything better to do....therefore..Career for life, and natural advancement.
HIS Parent would have be the "Depression/War" era parents...so he would have lived an austere upbringing, unless his parents were rich. They
probably thought his life style and the times were very decadent....compared to theirs.
So he would be more concerned for his children, and perhaps a little light on how to effectively convey his feelings.
Not enough Maryjane or lsd in the Navy perhaps.
I guess he's travelled the World, met lots of ladies, had many experiences, so wonders why his kids are not so inclined.
Of course, they are all waiting for him to drop dead so they can have his money......
