The Last Time...

This special post is for my husband, the Auburn fan, from your loving wife, the Kentucky fan.

The LAST TIME, Kentucky beat Auburn in football:

Lyndon B. Johnson was president of the United States.

Mod Fashion was all the rage, and Twiggy was dubbed "The Face of Fashion."

Gasoline was .32 cents per gallon.

Simon & Garfunkel had just released their new song, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme.

The average annual income in the U.S. was $6,900.

The best selling car in America was the Chevrolet Impala.

Star Trek had just appeared on television for the first time.

Disposable diapers had JUST been invented.

A Man for All Seasons won the Academy Award for best film.

I would not be born for another 8 months.

So...Kentucky "finally fielded a team!"
'Bout time, eh?

I think this is the beginning of a new tradition!

Great post! In 1966, my family lived from New Jersey to Colorado, where I've lived most of my life. I was 7 years old. It's so much fun to look at these photos and recall life at that time. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Oh, and Go Kentucky! :)
