Watching the very first Saturday Night Live.
How we fealt on 9/10/01.......
The Soupy Sales Show
Wonderama
Seeing U2 on MTV for the first time (I will Follow video)
Hearing John Lennon was killed 30 seconds before stepping on stage, to a packed house....
...Trying to keep it bottled up till the end of our show. (Thank God for sunglasses)
Watching the events of 9/11 unfold on TV, sitting with my son who turned 8 months old on that very day. Wondering how on earth I was going to explain all this to him when he was old enough....... * How DO you explain madness?

I'm old enough to remember when going to the bathroom was a pretty good excuse for missing a phone call. Now, folks expect you to take those darn cell phones everywhere!

I remember getting a dollar from my mom to go to the store with my friends so we could by junk food.

A bottle of coke (the special bigger bottle), 50 cents, bag of ketchup chips 25 cents, Popeye cigarettes 15cents, and a piece of Black Bart gum 10 cents. A big deal when you are 7-8 years old.

I remember when comic books were 35 cents.

I also remember taking a note to the neighbourhood convenience store to pick up stuff for my mom. The items would include cigarettes and the owner of the store would give them to me to bring home.

I also remember the release of Meatloaf's Bat out of Hell album. Classic!

I remember the day Elvis Presley died. I remember the day Skylab fell out of the sky.

Bazooka gum was 2 cents:
And red vines were like pennies a piece too

When someone said "AIDS" the first thing you thought of they were on a diet (try and figure that one out kiddies)


And I remember ads for a diet "candy" called Ayds.....
