I remember when
bell-bottom pants were a fashion;
I wore them not thinking I was a hippie
protesting war with contention...
mom was afraid I'd be drafted and lose me.

I remember when 
an ice cream cone cost only a dime,
all its ingredients were truly natural;
now, all vendors compete and mime...
one can't find that one that's sensational.

    Andrew you write of long ago so well. The hippe era, bell bottoms and beads. Nicely done. Warm Smiles, Connie
