Summer of '65

I bought a Honda 50 motorbike the summer of '65. Gas was about $.25/gal., cigarettes were about a dime a pack, and the bike got 225 mi./gal.

I stayed out all night with my friends driving around looking for fun stuff to do.

When I woke in the morning, I read a book. I read all the James Bond novels that summer. I found many of them the other day while searching through my library. The cover price for those paperbacks was $.50.
