Music: Then there was the 1957/1958 vacation

Our great vacation at the end of 1958 took us to Miami. It was my first airplane flight! We left New York in the cold of winter and landed in some kind of sunny paradise...which lasted for about a day. We had a beautiful day in Miami and 6 days and nights of rain.

Here's where we stayed. It's no longer in existence but man, it was cool!

The world, which began in 1950, was a nice enough place, consisting of rugs, drapes and the undersides of chairs. Shortly after that windows were invented along with ways to get up high enough to look out of them.
