    Would loved to have had a tall horse, saddle, bedroll, Colt SA, Winchester(1873) and a ranch somewhere in the high lonesome.

    I wish I was born in the "Silent Generation" or between 1925 and 1942 to be exact (more specifically late 30s).

    I wish I attended High School in the mid 50s. I think it would just have been so much better. I could go necking with my girlfriend. Go to the Soda Fountain, Sop Hop, high school football games.

    I would've seen the rise of great technology but would have been to old to really care about them. Sometimes I feel like Millennials get too caught up in the "I NEED INFORMATION NOW" type of thing with their cellphones and facebook and twitter. It was just much simpler times back then.

    Plus the "Silent Generation" didn't have to fight in any major wars and just seemed to be in the right place at the right time. They didn't have to worry about any real major health issues except for cancer but they were/are so old that it just wouldn't matter to me.
    My Grandpa was born in 1925 and went to WWII in 1943, so not exactly the right place at the right time.

    Aside from that, I think being my parents age would be have been fun. Going to high school in the late 60's, early 70's. Sounds like the 70's was a fun time to in your 20's.

    My father was born in 24 and he and his older brother were both in WWII. His younger brother (8 years younger) served in Korea. Plenty of young men born in the late 20s saw action in WWII. They were the "replacements".

    Re: "Friday" QOTW 7/3 - What era do you wish you grew up in?

    It has been said by others but I'm pretty happy with the era I have lived through. I've had ups & downs, but all in all it has been fun. Playing outdoors, unsupervised, after dark...and no one worried about it. Rode our bikes everywhere. We only had 3 channels on TV, the phones were stationary and rotary dial, no nintendo, no computers, and yet we managed to survive. :) We spent a lot more time outdoors, using our imaginations, and less time "plugged in". Aaaaaand...great music, much of which has stood the test of time.

    However, I would love to be able to "visit" and experience different eras, primarily starting a hundred or more years back. I hate to say it, but if I was interacting with the era, I don't really think I would want to be a woman. I value my independence too much...and that was a trait highly frowned upon throughout most of history. :)
