“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Tidbits from the year 1977
While the first Apple computer goes on sale, the New York Yankees are the World Series champions and the Oakland Raiders are the Super Bowl XI champions. Seattle Slew wins the Kentucky Derby. Jimmy Carter President of the United States tells Americans that they must consider making changes in their oil consumption. The first oil travels through the Trans-Alaskan Oil Pipeline.
The average Cost of new house $49,300.00, average annual income $15,000.00, the average monthly rent $240.00 and gas per gallon was 65 cents.
There were several sex symbols and fashion icons in 1977 – perhaps you remember Dolly Parton, Cheryl Ladd, Mary Tyler Moore, Jane Seymour, Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Diane Keaton just to name a few. I was and I am still a fan of Diane Keaton. “La-dee-da, la-dee-da.”- Diane Keaton, in Annie Hall. She just oozes star quality, in my opinion. And hey, you’re welcome to chime in with your favorites.
Hey, was it seven-eleven in nineteen seventy-seven?
When the US population hit 216 million
Do we connect the dots to reach one zillion?
We’re minus a legend, yep just do the math
Sentenced to absentia while navigating life’s path
“Elvis has left the building”, a star-studded crooner
Played his last encore for woebegone swooners
The world of music lost its soul
when the hip-wiggling King left rock and roll
Now we got Star Wars for our filmgoer fans
We flocked to the cinemas in our VW vans
Chia pets and sheeple learn life’s not tied with a bow
The New York City Blackout literally steals the show
Welcome the hip-hop genre and punk rock bands
Their hot new music is filling the stands
Barbie’s got a motorhome, a dune buggy, and a bike
My BMW’s in a cardboard garage that has no lights
You gotta tip the waitress while you’re at the disco
Or she’ll say toodle-oo and become a no-show
Elvis Aaron Presley
Jan. 8. 1935 – Aug. 16, 1977
“Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth. I just sorta do ’em all together, I guess.”
― Elvis Presley
