This may have already been stated in this thread I apologize if it has been BUT. My mother and I where having this same "kids got it too easy these days" discussion. She was probably 80 at the time which would make me about 50. I told her that in reality we had it good when we where kids in the 50s and she in the 30s, kids today have difficult life decisions to make regarding booze, drugs, sex, gangs, bullying, peer pressure, and other life choices that she had never had to face in her lifetime. To my mind I had it easy and so did my mother. We never knew what we didn't have but we had very little pressure.

I think you are right on. I was raised on a farm in central Missouri and went to a one room country school with no indoor plumbing. It was two miles away and we had to walk. And it really was uphill both ways. We played outside all the time and drugs, sex, gangs, never really exposed to them. When I was 17 my parents moved to Calif. Culture shock.

Kids now have alot of things to deal with. When I tell my grandkids these things, they look at me like I am crazy.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Joe Bethancourt many years ago. He had a show he put on in the back room of Funny Fellows Pizza shop, in Phoenix Az. He plays all the intruments you see in the background of the video, plus about two dozen more.
