Well I turned eighteen still living at home, but I guess I was old enough to drink, old enough to have a drivers licence, old enough to smoke and see "R " rates movies, therefore I was old enough to start looking around for a girlfriend. But was that what life was really all about, is that the way I was going to spend the rest of my life. I was brought up in Christian home with family values, good education, money spent on me for food, clothing, sports, music interests and other cultural ideas and entertainment but there was something not quite right I found out I was adopted when I was about seven and went out the front at a Billy Graham Crusade when I was eight but was that going to hold me in good stead for the rest of my life.
Of course it would but the television took more of my time than my time to be devoted to studying. All those old movies full of affairs, drink and cigarettes. Not to mention seeing all the serials repeat five times over. Gilligan's Island, Lost In Space, Brady Bunch and Batman + Robin and the rest along with all the cartoons with an occasional documentary just to make sure I did not lose track completely. Never really one to watch the news but enjoyed cinemas and pinball, arcades playing snooker and pool til all hours of the morning.
