By Flight Commander, I mean I was the leader of my JROTC period. I'm the one who called the room to attention, told who posted and retired the Guide-on, passed out papers, talked to the Senoir Aerospace Science Instructor (SASI) and the Aerospace Science Instructor, etc.

Old enought to have been at the Afton Festival in 1970.

Watched Jimi Hendrix, Kris Kristofferson, Supertramp, Chicago, Emerson Lake and Palmer, The Who, Ralph McTell, Heaven, Free, Donovan, Moody Blues, Joan Baez, Jethro Tull, Richie Havens, Leonard Cohen.

Weirdest of the weird was Tiny Tim.

Took some time to slowly dry out and dry up.

Now slowly moving from the Stones to Buffett (Jimmy not Warren).

I am 31, but my body feels like 80 in some places and like 18 in other. No public data available for "age and location" :P
