And You Can Keep The Dime . . .

This meme showed up in my FB feed yesterday and I can’t get the song out of my head, thus here we are.

It is remarkable that those references mean nothing to my daughters generation as it seems we are living in a different world.

I did the math and I was in 8th grade when Jim Croce was killed in a plane crash on September 20, 1973 . . . the day before I Got A Name  was released. I remember that day, but originally wasn’t sure if it was 7th or 8th grade as my memory is being in the library at Warren (NJ)  Middle School and hearing the news.  I was already a fan and cried.

Jim and Maury live. . . from when music mattered, and was not sampled.

About Ray V.

Living between Aiken & Charleston,, South Carolina, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.
