You know you're from the 60s when your dad tells you and your siblings to stop everything they're doing and get in the car, with no further explanation.  In twenty minutes, your dad stops by the road in Apra Heights or, after another twenty minutes, near Mount Lamlam, to do what?  To view the grass fires that often came in the dry season - January to May, more or less.

I think he would hear about the fires on the radio and off we went!  In the 1960s on Guam, when we had one TV channel, which didn't last all day and night either, watching grass fires for some people like my dad was something to do.  Can you spell "bored?"
