I was 20 in 1975. Events kind of fuzzy. Still a good word puzzle!

It's amazing how much a person can forget in only three-plus decades!

I'm still trying to figure out what happened in 2005 let alone 1975.

I don't want to step on anyone's feet, but the 60's were the days. I'd like to have a WP with ten puzzles just for 1968.

Good puzzle, though it took me till well into my third puzzle before I realized that each one was simply a different way of acknowledging the death of Francisco Franco.

I didn't have any Francisco Franco questions! And even worse, no disco questions!!
Probably kept my score lower than I hoped.
Bring on the 1968 puzzle.

well. actually 1966 would be better- The Orioles won the World Series

Well, I might sound like a geezer but I think the '50's were the best.

I think Ken is just pulling our legs. Anyway, here were my clues/phrases for anyone who's interested:

Year in music - bohemian rhapsody by queen hit number one
Year in movies & TV - wheel of fortune premiered
Truly trivial event - the first appearance of san diego chicken
Births - drew barrymore and david beckham
Year in science and tech - The first apollo soyuz link up

Since I grew up in San Diego, I remember well the birth of the San Diego Chicken. This may be the one case where scientists know that the chicken came before the egg.

Including the Wheel of Fortune premiere in a wheel-of-fortune-type puzzle cracked me up.

Yes, but 1975 featured the best World Series ever. Remember Carlton Fisk?

1975 - I was 19. No hubbie, no babies, thought $1.60 an hour was serious money. Ahhh

Bill - I did do one on 1968 a number of months ago. Well received, too.

I have trouble remembering if I had breakfast....
but 1975 was a very good year
I was single and carefree once again, doing
well at work, and my kids were darlings....

Ken, I agree that the '75 Series was great. I kinda liked the '68 with Detroit and St.Louis. Beer-belly Mickey Lolich was fantastic. I had such a passion for baseball for years but now I can't tell you 10% of the players. I do feel blessed that I saw, in person some of the greatest ever play. A few that I saw were Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays, Bob Feller, Warren Spahn, Pete Rose. I had the pleasure of watching Stan Musial strike out three times in one game, I never liked the Cardinals. I'll never understand the attraction and attention that Wrigley Field gets. $7.00 Beers , $6.00 re-heated hamburgers and $35.00 to sit in the Bleachers. Up until 1975, it was $1.00 a head. There are no conveniences for parking, unless you pay a local for a street spot ($40.00), there is a pick-pocketing ring at the park (about 40 per game, minimum) and the team sells prime seats to brokers. I once read in the Chicago Sun-Times that it costs about $250.00 for a family of four to attend a regular weekday day game. In 1976-77, I would get 12 or 13 Box seat tickets (for 2 people) behind the visiting dugout , first or second row for less than $200.00. These tickets were for weekend games, too. I'm getting boring, but the last thrilling thing for males attending games at Wrigley is that you get to pee in a trough with a bunch of drunks whenever nature calls. Hockey is the best.

Rowlanda, We got married in 1977. She was a bit pre-occupied.

Kept Debbie busy did you Bill????

I got married in the 60's so they were not
my best years by any means....
70's was free and easy, and lots of fun!!!!
