I remember getting a phone, and a few yrs later I remember us switching from rotary to a sleek push button model.

I remember He Man, and a few yrs later being able to take my brother in to town ON THE BUS BY OURSELVES to see the movie.

I remember playing TJ Hooker, and I always wanted to be Stacey.

I remember Dallas and Falcon Crest nights, we were never really a Dynasty family.

I remember Bet Lynch, Hilda Ogden et al, and when Eastenders started.

Grange Hill , the old Dr. Who ( The Fourth Era), Play School, Blue Peter ( I think I kept postcard companies in business trying to enter all their competitions), CrackerJack ( OMG I went to see the christmas panto version of it at the Gaiety or somewhere I think), TOTP when it was the be all and end all of music, Bosco , Aneka (sp) Rice - I was in love with her and wanted to be her when I grew up), The Thunderbirds (creepiest show ever), , The Professionals (Bodie and Doyle, I was always liked the blonde one), The Avengers, Minder (Her Indoors),

Playing V with my friends, reading The Four Marys, Black Beauty, the Just William books ,Sweet Valley High books

Torvill & Dean & Bolero - I tried to recreate this on our linoleum floored kitchen with rubber soled slippers, slipper jammed on the floor, face first into a cabinet and knocked myself out and 4 teeth with it ),

Karate Kid, buying a David Bowie mirror after falling in love with him in Labyrinth, BROS ( I was always a Luke girl and passed out seeing them in concert), A-Ha (Morten ),

Space Hoppers, Rubicks(sp) cubes, yoyos, Roller Skates,

being the ultimate chic with my Robert Smith fringe (Cure Head) and the rest of my hair tied back in a banana clip,

Smash Hits magazine

playing Pong for hours (1 player!!)

Thinking my best friend's older brother was weird and a pretentious snob because he was a huge U2 fan ( Irony don't hurt me!)

The Pope coming to Dublin

Going on shopping trips to Newry and Belfast beacause everything was cheaper (Argos catalogues )


Aaannnddd I just drifted off into a 10 minute reverie so I'll stop for now

I just remembered Challenger


Ellliiiiottt (Please someone know what I'm talking about - you need to remember the voice!) LOL

k, I'm really going to bed now!!

This just brought back the funniest memory!!

I was very young when he jumped the Snake River Canyon (I think that was the one). I must have been a dorky, naive, literal-minded little kid who obviously didn't understand the nuances of dare devilry, but I remember walking around that entire day with a feeling of dread in the pit of my stomach, convinced that he was going to die, and wishing there were some way I could stop him from going ahead with it.

Here's just some random stuff:
I remember when pro athletes stayed with the same team for their whole career.
I remember having a car or cars that only had AM radio.
I remember 8 track players. My older sister used to play the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack all of the time.
I remember 45's.
I remember cassette singles.
I remember when children listened to their parents with a very genuine feeling that they would get their asses kicked if they didn't.
I remember when nobody downsized.
I remember when you couldn't say fart, ass or sucks on broadcast tv.

I'm way too young for this thread, lol.

I remember getting really scared by professional wrestling in the early 90s.

Oh and I remember when video game controllers only had 1 or 2 buttons. And when you died, you LOST, and had to START OVER. We didn't have save points.

the VCR
a CD the music kind
Beepers

I remember coming home from Disneyland with unused tickets from those books - or giving them to California family members.
