    This week I want to take a break from the hippie era collection to showcase other treasures I have happily found through the years and still have... This is the large Original Chicago Sun Times Master uncropped Photo of the Lee Harvey Oswald Assassination by Jack Ruby. I remember watching this live on our B&W TV waiting while Mom was making beef stew in the kitchen. A 10 year old watching a live murder - such were the times we grew up in... This oversized photo has all the right date stamps on the back and cost me a pretty penny maybe a decade ago and now hangs in our living room... OK, the irony just hit me.

      Wow.

      I remember back when one of the local TV stations would come on with a public service announcement every evening at 11PM, asking whether parents knew where their children were. I would sarcastically say to myself, "Yeah, they know exactly where I am -- planted in front of the living room TV."

      It isn't always safe in front of the TV, is it?

      I don't remember where I was when Oswald was murdered, but I do remember where I was when I heard JFK had been assassinated -- in school. The school administration interrupted classes to announce it over the PA system.

      I was still a little girl in grade school, so all I really understood was that it was a very bad thing, because all the grownups were upset.

      Then as the days wore on, I became upset myself, because there was nothing on TV except a flag-draped coffin. I was a little kid: I wanted to see some cartoons.

      I was watching it with my grandmother. Couldn't believe it happened live on tv. I was nine.
