In 1973 I finished high school, passed my test for union training. [View all]

Had the whole summer off and spent it in Austin.

It was a great summer.

My parents gave me the money they saved for college and said go to Austin and enjoy the summer.

I did.

1973 abortion became legal.

Things were looking up.

Texas was run by Democrats.

Now it is 2021 and I am glad I am not that same age now.

The future was there, just grab it.

I did.

Now we have this mess to deal with.

I would like to be that kid back in 1973 again.

Austin was a blast back then.
