#ThrowbackThursday - Here is a question for you?

#ThrowbackThursday - This week, a look back into the 1970’s and a challenge for you! As I mentioned, a look back to the 70’s or more specifically, the 1972-73 academic year, and, a challenge coming later. Because I was a student in those early 70’s, I thought this would be an easy one to write but so many happenings and not enough space.
