Most folks my age will never forget how Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941, changed our lives forever.
For you youngsters, that’s the day the Japanese attacked our naval installation, Pearl Harbor.
That was one rough month for me.
Reality sunk in when Sears, Roebuck & Co. canceled my order for a J.C. Higgins Roadmaster Deluxe bicycle because someone in Greensboro thought it would be needed by the Army to fight the enemy.
I still bet somebody whose daddy worked for Sears got my bicycle for Christmas.
