Default What were you doing in 1961?

KT was 12 years old and heavy into collecting pennies and nickels! HA HA

But the Bennie KT recovered today was being minted in Denver! Whoopie! And somehow after 60 years it wound up in Box 2 of KT's weekly hunt! Now he gets to reside in a tube with other silver half dollars, safe and snug away in the Royal Treasure Chest!

Before you wonder about the strange picture, KT was trying to see if the Royal Camera takes a better picture in shadow or full light....Me thinketh shadow is better for detail!

Anyway, the wagon started rolling again this week. Interestingly, at least to KT, was that there was not one NIFC in either box. Odd after last weeks crazy batch of 2021 Kens!

Royal thanks for the comment, amc rulz! KT agrees, especially from only a two box hunt! Old Ben saved KT’s bacon, this time!

Cool, did you follow up on that, Detector? Or leave it behind, once you could make your own choices? KT always wanted to learn to play an instrument…tried clarinet in grade school, acoustic guitar in high school and college, but left them behind when the Voice was discovered. No need to carry anything around with you…ha ha. Have sung in choirs and as a soloist for many years now…started as a baritone, and now sing tenor, the voice having changed when His Majesty turned 40, same as my father.

I played violin all through grade school and then picked up the guitar at age 8. Played my first gig in 1969 at 14 and gigged solidly for the next 20 years. Record an album in 1988 and quit gigging in 1989. Now I just record in my home studio.

Never was much for lead singing, although I did in a few bands, but loved doing backups. I've got a lot of my videos on Facebook doing songs I enjoy, and some of my original stuff.

Tricky Dicky was President the year I got here and it was also the year Jim Croce died.

Thank you all for your comments. KT is happy to know you all are watching His Majesty’ thread! And yes, KT does remember Tricky Dicky, but was not old enough to have voted for or against him!
