Me and my brothers in Corpus Christi, TX, 1972
We’re so groovy. That’s a Buick Wildcat behind us, I think it was a ‘68. This was right before we moved to Westport CT. We were Texas kids, I was born in Austin and my brothers were born in Houston (ha ha, my hometown’s cooler). Anyway, we said things like “yes ma’am” and “no sir” (unless we wanted to get smacked) back then (do parents still teach their kids stuff like that?) but after we moved to Westport, we had to stop saying it, in school at least, because teachers thought we were being smart asses; we were just being polite.
