Those must have been the really good old days in Moscow!  In hometown 
downtown that summer there were two gas stations side-by-side on the 
east side of Main Street, Texaco and Mobil, and one on the west side, 
Exxon.  Regular gas was 35 cents per gallon, mileage was about 10 miles 
per gallon, and wages for a kid maxed out at $1.25 per hour.

University semester fees were $105; room, board, and books extra. Neale 
Stadium had wood bench seats in bleachers.

No, I didn't see the moon landing on TV.  I was fixing car tires, and 
walking to and from work.
