RE: It's a Three Letter Word - Cajunwolf - 10-11-2019

I'm an old hippy from the 60s myself, damn proud of it, and going on 66 (December) still sporting a ponytail. And as I remember it, "my pad" was where I lived. My dad kicked me out of the house as soon as he legally could, and I hit the road in my VW Bus. I'll never conform.

If you still have that VW bus, it's worth a small fortune today, lol. But not the pony tail.

I know, right? Naw, I burned up that poor old VW bus outside of Amarillo, Texas, on my way to Colorado. The VW was not made for 70 mph interstates, or Texas highways with 80 mph speed zones in those days. Have you ever tried hitchhiking out of Amarillo, Texas, in the 60s when you're an obvious hippy? It isn't pretty.

Ha, I had a Dodge van (3-letter word) with 318 V8 back then, and still managed to blow up the engine. My poor girl friend. When she met me I had short hair and a 66 Mustang convertible with small V8, which I traded in for the used Dodge van. Then I went to school at Berkeley, grew my hair, and lived in the van during the week parked behind an apartment building one block from campus. Poor girl, I think she was blind sided by the 1-0 transition. What'ya gonna do.

A while back, on some forum or other - maybe this one, maybe not - a younger person was lamenting that he never saw real hippies on the road, just a bunch of older gray hairs, and wondered where they had all gone.

I had to laugh.

Oh, yeah... perfect setup, thanks!

Good answer!

Hmm, that song ends with ....

"Gone to graveyards every one.
....
Where have all the graveyards gone?
Covered with flowers every one".

So, I guess the hippies started as flower children and ended pushing up daisies. Cool I'll have to remember that next time I see a young person.
