Okay, the hair is understandable...if you lived in California in 1986 you had to have the rooster thing going with your bangs...but Ricky Schroeder!!!

We're Silver Spoons together...you and I

let's see......we moved to Detroit, I was at the beginning of my ugly phase, my grandmother died, and I wore pink Converse All-Stars. Definitely NOT one of my finest years....

too bad I don't have a scanner.

Busy with my second son, and finding out hub was quite a good bass player (he sold his bass when he left the city and never let on he played for some time)I helped him get his first North Coast band together, mainly by staying home with the children and keeping them quiet in the morning so he could sleep in after a gig. The band was called Razor and he has played nearly every weekend ever since. Are there any other rock'n' roll widows here?
if there are, you'll know what I mean. it's Ok.....but sometimes.....

Nappies and rock n roll. Grand days.

I was 8 years old. I wish I had a pic, I was such a nerd!! lol

I went to my best friend's birthday party, where we all saw An American Tail for the hundreth time (for me it was more like 15th; my poor parents!). Um, I remember we had just gotten cable I think so I was addicted to Mtv and wanted to be like Madonna so I would wake up real early on weekends and put on my "Madonna outfit": jelly sandals & bracelts, a big fluffy black skirt, and a pink scarf which I wore around my head. Lots of junk jewelry figured into it, too. I put on concerts for my parents, hehe

I was so cute.

I was 15, with a flock of seagulls-like hair style, totally geeky, totally obsessed with anything U2 related.

Expo '86!!

1986 marked the year the World's fair came to Vancouver!! That was huge and by far my biggest memory of '86

I remember wearing black and white bermuda shorts with a red polo shirt, collar up of course and short hair spiked on one side. Damn I gotta get a scanner, the pics are hilarious!!! I remember all the pavilions we visited, the laser show, the fireworks, the monorail, the gondolas, seeing Tony Parsons do the news, being introduced to Mel Gibson for the first time in my life and wishing that I was old enough to go and see Howard Jones in concert one night!! LMAO I was twelve and ready for the world!! Rode on my first ever roller coaster (The Scream Machine) and discovered that the Mounties Musical Ride really is just for tourists.

I nearly had a heart attack at the top of the parachute drop!!!

This guy just takes me waaaaaaaaaaaaay back! UFO H2O

The big Swatch Watch was the best!!!

Ok.... I'll stop now.... But you asked!!!!!

In 1986 I turned 1 and my mum and dad bought me my first vinyl record....maybe that explains my music obsession now and my hoige music collection, my mum was pregnant with my brother who is a year and 10 months younger than me. I was sick until I was about 10 months and cried constantly....I tired out my poor mum and dad and they spent most of that year taking me to the hopsital, and trying to get me to stop crying oh i also moved house in that year too.

Oh I would post a pic but after I blew the computer up last year my dad couldnt get the scanner installed again and chucked it in a box and put it in the attic......maybe ill see if he can try and make it work again later

Well, I was 4 years old...so 16 years ago, I had finished pre-school and was gettin' geared up for kindergarten. That probably meant I spent the days mostly playin' with my older sister and her friends in the neighborhood in our tree fort across the street in the woods, swimmin' in our pool or the neighbors' pool, and playin' football and stuff in our yard. Or, if my sis was bein' mean, helpin' Mom around the house and playin' in the sandbox with her or with Barbies.

I was turning 1... I really can't remember what I was doing but I think I was crying, eating, sleeping, playing, learning how to speak and kept on crying...

*goes to search a 1986 pic*

1986...let's see...
In May I graduated from The University of Massachusetts.
In June I saw U2 and others at Giants Stadium on the Amnesty International tour.
In October I attended game 5 of the World Series at Fenway Park and watched Bruce Hurst pitch the Red Sox to a 3-2 wseries lead...2 days later the ball went through Bill Buckner's legs and I have been scarred ever since.
