Missiles, Canned Goods and White Shirts
This is what I call "kitchen table" storytelling.
Sometimes something comes up - sparks a story - and you go ahead and tell it without deep preparation, relying on your memory to feed you the information as you need it. Well, that's what happened the day I told this story for the camera at Channel 16. I watched the morning CNN News and 20 minutes later when I pulled into the parking lot outside the television studio I had decided to revisit my memories of a time 50 years ago. Perhaps the story will prompt your memories of October 1962 in your home.
This happened a week before Sandy the Frankenstorm loomed on the scene. Funny that just 4 days later we were putting in supplies and preparing for our "survival" during Sandy.
