Tuesday Chatter 64


While we’re having coffee, let’s ponder whether we’re certain or whether we’re doubtful about this and that. I’ve got a feeling this will be one of those thought-provoking chats. Perhaps even pointless.

Tuesday Chatter 64 brings to mind the year 1964, maybe before your time and if so I’m sorry you missed it. Here are a few highlights I gathered for 1964, which I list the credits at the bottom of this post.

U.S. President: Lyndon B Johnson. U.S. Population: 191,888.791, Life expectancy: 70.2 years, Cost of U.S. postage stamp 0.05, Gas per Gallon 30 cents, Loaf of bread 21 cents, Average Cost of new house $13,050.00, Average Cost of a new car $3,500.00,  Average Income per year $6,000.00, The Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan show, Miss America: Donna Axum (AR), World Series: St. Louis Cardinals d. NY Yankees (4-3), World Population: 3.276 billion, Nobel Peace Prize: Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (US)



And of course, there is our 1964 SS Chevy Impala, which some of my followers may be familiar with her diva-like ways. I discussed some of her shenanigans in my previous posts but she felt she was under the gossips stare so I thought it best to leave her to herself.

64 Impala

Ode to 1964

We were bitchin and bad

Never bummed out or sad

Life was a blast, a real gas

No room for a candyass

We were cats and chicks

We’d hang loose at flicks

Sometimes all decked out

We were cool and far out

No ratfinks or flakes

Hands down no fakes

We’d bug out and go cruising

but not for a bruising

We’d lay a patch with our ride

We had the fuzz on our side

Yep, we were fine as wine

We lived on Cloud 9

Hey, do you dig?

Don’t flip your wig!

Lay it on me now and

Don’t have a cow

Later man and be cool.

And some useful but perhaps useless information

January 23rd is Handwriting Day. Wow, handwritten notes and letters are almost a thing of the past, a lost art one might say. With computers, tablets and cell phones, handwriting is dwindling and not the first choice in communication. It’s unfortunate and I hope putting the pen to paper doesn’t come to naught. I feel handwriting adds such a personal touch as a method to send thank you notes, invitations, and personal letters, do you agree?

Stay Tuned for the next chat!

  2. My handwriting was always awful. I couldn’t even read it. I was actually happy when I learned to type. Of course, my typewriter was broken most of the time I was in school….

  4. I wasn’t cool i was to young for school,
    but in England they’d say
    Watch that chic sway
    As she twisted the night away.
    In 64 we’d have a two door
    A red MGB so chaps could flirt
    With a fresh bit of skirt
    The Beatles were top
    Singing their pop.
    And I was not cool
    But too young
    for school.

  5. love the poem. What an revolutionary ,scary and exciting time to live in. I think of Nina Simone when I think of MLK. I think of the civil rights movement. I think of change.

  6. Oh, Yess… I remember seeing the Impala in the seventies… maybe used cars bought by people who loved to show off. It was always a cause of the neighbours’ annoyance, due to the limited parking space for residential buildings. And, maybe envy…. 🙂
