Well, here we are, dear readers, on the precipice of 2017. Whaaaat? Remember when we used to wonder how in the world we would even refer to a year that begins with “20?” How long did it take you to stop writing “19” in your date line without even thinking? Well, anyway, I’d like to add a new dimension to this column in 2017.
For almost a year now, I’ve shared with you my memories, musings and the thorns in my side. In the coming months, I’d like to hear from you, and share some of your thoughts.
What amazes you about the youth of today? What puzzles you? What really ticks you off? What’s changed since you were a kid, and what hasn’t really changed at all? Are your grandchildren from another planet, or do you actually get what they’re talking about? What do you think about the music, movies and television of the day?
