My favorite decade was the 1950's. I was 11 at the beginning and of course, a grown-up (I think) at the end. During the 50's I finished school, left home and started working. I met my wife in 1955. In 1958 we started dating and in 1959 we married. We have now been together for almost 52 years with 6 offspring, 15 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. During the 50's the railroads changed from steam to diesel locomotives. I STILL miss those smoke belching dirty old steamers! I loved to watch them! Today I have a number of videos with steam but it ain't the same! Airlines began to change over from propeller planes to jets in that decade. I still enjoy seeing one of the old prop planes flying over. When the decade started, RADIO WAS KING! But, by the end of the decade TV had just about taken over. I still love what is now called "Old Time Radio." Fortunately there are tons of old radio broadcasts available on recordings and I have a lot of them. Some of my favorites are - The Lone Ranger, Jack Benny, Gunsmoke (It started on radio and later moved to TV), and many others. I listen to one or two of these programs almost every night. During the 50's you didn't hear all the filthy language and sexual talk that is so common on todays TV and movies. I enjoyed the movies of that era. Some of my favorites were Gene Autrey, Roy Rogers and most of the other Cowboy Heros. Because of my watching so many Westerns in my youth, I still consider the Lever Action as my favorite Rifle! And, of course, I have a large collection of old movies on video. I enjoyed the Comic Books of that era. My favorite was Fawcett Comics' Captain Marvel. Others that I loved were Walt Disney's Comics and Stories, Tarzan, the Spirit and almost all the rest. I currently have a large stack of old comic books. But, I have saved the best for last! We had FAR MORE GUN FREEDOM during the 50's! When Military equipment (like guns and ammo) was deemed to be obsolete it was sold to the public! At that time the government TRUSTED us with guns! Kids walking to school would often tote a .22 rifle along. When he got to school he just put it in the coat closet. Nobody was bothered by the sight of a person carrying a gun - at least not in the western States! When I was 16, I walked into a surplus store and purchased a surplus British revolver and a hand full of shells for about $10! And, NO PAPERWORK! So, tell us what is your favorite Decade and why!
