Way Back When-sday

This is my seventh-grade picture -- braces and all. It was October 1978 and I was attending Grifton Elementary School in Grifton, N.C. Those were the old school braces -- the kind that if you had them, you really worried about kissing anybody. You especially worried if the other person also had braces -- no matter if the urban legends weren't true. My braces didn't do me a hell of a lot of good. Maybe it's because I didn't really wear the retainer the way I was supposed to afterward and I didn't always use the rubberbands when I was supposed to.

Anyway, here's a little more about 1978.

And for your listening pleasure, here's one of the No. 1 songs of 1978 according to Billboard:
