Sure, I know because I won the NYC marathon that year. :)

Mysti Berry

I asked my dad who the Beatles were when I was a kid. He said, "You don't have to worry about them. They're just a bunch of guys who do drugs."

He had a unique slant on the world ;)


HA! Camille... you are so funny. Was running a *habit* with you at the time? ;-)


OMG Mysti, Now I feel very old indeed. You had to ask your FATHER who they were??
While listening to this song, I was overcome with a wave of nostalgia for George Harrison's album, All Things Must Pass, which was apparently also released in this specific year. However I associate that album with my first year of college, not high school.

Camille Minichino

I'm hurt that no one thinks I ever ran -- I would have, if I'd ever been chased.


Camille, if brain power and sheer mental drive were measured in mph, you'd be an Olympic star! :-)


I was only 5000 behind you, Camille, and running has never been a "habit" with me...

Cristina Flores

I KNOW! :D That definitely is quite a bit of history the year you graduated high school! How cool.


Definitely a lot of stuff going on the year you graduated, Ann. Gas was 36 cents a gallon?! I can't even imagine!

Michael A. Black

Didn't Jimmy Hendrix die of an overdose right after Janis? I'll add that I was in basic training at Fort Polk, Louisiana when they showed Patton, and George C. Scott's line, "You won't have to say, I shoveled s**t in Louisiana" caused a wave of laughter to sweep over the all-GI audience.
