Oh those Cabbage Patch Dolls...the ONLY time I every stood in line for something. 5:30 a.m. on the day our Toys R Us got them. I was FIRST in line. They put them in a circle on the floor and you had like 5 minutes to pick what you wanted. I think the limit was 2, which I what I walked out with! I think my children still have theirs.

I also played with Little Kiddles...little dolls that "walked" and Barbies. I think I played with Barbies until I was 15 (but never told anyone).BigGrin

I have an older brother who was so into Star Trek back then, so I've seen every movie and just about every episode of the original series. I did see Star Trek last weekend and I loved it.

I also loved the Mouseketeers and the ABC After School Specials (you know movies with a message).

What I remember most about high school was going to concerts - Aerosmith, KISS, STYX, Journey, Bob Seger, Beatlemania, The Eagles, Queen, Pink Floyd, Kansas, Three Dog Night, Eric Clapton... We were an hour from Boston, Hartford, Providence, the Cape, Portsmouth, Springfield, Tanglewood; it was the best location for going to concerts since we had so many venues close by, gas was .45/gal and the 70s was the best era for rock-n-roll.

Corduroy, bell bottoms (flares), plaid, tye dye, batik, body suits, carpenter pants, fringe, platform shoes. The Drive-In, van shows, DISCO!, American Bandstand, Soul Train, Happy Days & The Fonz, The Bump, mood rings, lava lamps, roller rinks, pet rocks..

My dad wouldn't allow my mother to buy me jeans so when I got my 1st paycheck I bought myself a pair of jeans and everyone was laughing at me at the Drive-In that night because they said I looked funny in themBlushing LOL

Aahh the memories..

The Cabbage Patch doll craze must've been in the mid eighties?? I remember my step-daughter wanting one SO BAD but you just couldn't get them. My dad had a client in Puerto Rico who owned a toy store and managed to get one shipped from him!

After School Specials, Winnie the Pooh movies that actually appeared on the tv versus the movie theater. You actually played outside all day until your parents made you come in.

Altina my son turned 21 recently. He would say Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, and Mummies.

From when I was a kid...pedal cars, big wheels, the green machine, and the bouncy balls you sat on that had a head with the handles on it.

I miss drive-in movie theatersBigGrin

When the Cabbage Patch dolls came out, my sister worked at Fay's Drug Store so she scooped up the first one to arrive. Lauren still has her doll too!

I didn't buy my own first pair of jeans but I can still remember my mom taking me uptown to buy my first pair of jean pants. But they were brown, not blue. A tan top and a belt too! I guess I was in the 6th grade as I also remember that one of the other 6th grade teachers would not let the girls in his class wear pants. Can you believe that? My 6th grade teacher was awesome - he taught us how to play sports! lol He's still one of my fav. teachers to this day and I always smile when I see him!

My gosh if a teacher told a student today what they can't wear to school, the teacher would be thrown in jail!

What did I buy with my first paycheck? Contact lens! lol I did! I was a carhop at the A&W Drive-In restaurant. I started working the day I turned 14 as I wanted to work there with my favorite cousins! lol It was awesome!

Heart, Fleetwood Mac, Boston were my favorite concerts to go to when I was a senior in HS.

Has anyone mentioned sewing their own prom dresses? Nothing like the prom dresses bought today in the stores! lol

And those years were great also for picnics! Every Sunday some families on the street got together for a picnic and the guys played horseshoes, then the adults all played cards. Us kids played jailbreak or kick the can. We had a great street of kids, and it was a dead end street, so we could have so much fun playing those games nightly all summer long. Or we would all go to the lake to go boating and skiing. It was so nice that moms didn't have to work back then...they could clean and shop during the week so that we could have picnics and gatherings on the weekends! Family time!

Plus we went to the Drive In movies regularly in the summer. I can still remember how mom would pop up batches of popcorn and put in a brown paper grocery bag. And a pitcher of red koolaid. It was a cheap night out for the family!

The only soap opera I have ever watched is Days Of Our Lives. I started watching it when I was 19 and I still watch it.

My first DH and all his friends had souped up cars back when I was 17 and into our 20s. Camaro, Firebird, Mustang, etc. To this day, whenever I hear a souped up car purring I instantly go back to those years and memories. I love the sound of those cars....

I had a great childhood and wouldn't change it for a thing! This current generation of kids growing up are really getting screwed with few happy memories thanks to the expense of everything, and moms working and high rate of crime or fear of your kid being kidnapped when you let them out the door, etc. Even their toys break the first week they have them! lol Our stuff lasted and lasted forever!

I am loving all the pictures and stories.Love It seems whether you were a child of the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, or 90's, it was a much simpler time than now. I was watching a commercial the other day and every time it comes on it irks me.....I believe it is a knook and you can set parental controls so that it will shut off after a pre set time period. It is what they say that irks me ...we monitor it so you don't have too. It is the age of absentee parenting. Does it irk anyone else? My mother would of never tolerated us staying in to watch tv all day...it was out the door when you woke up, come in for lunch, go back out until dinner...then in the summer we would even go back out after dinner.

Welcome Kazalah to our fun little group.BigGrin

We still have have a drive-in movie theater and an A&W root beer stand drive-in restaurant nearby!! I remember going to both as a child and still go to this day! The root beer stand is a little expensive but fun to go to for a treat. They just don't bring out the food on roller skates, wish they did. lol! I think E.T. was the first movie I seen at the drive-in!

I used to shoo my kids outside in the Spring and lock the screen door LOL LOL LOL They'd whine about child abuse and I'd give them the number for DCYF and dare them to call them cuz' I could use a break. We moved to the NH mountains so they COULD play outside and be safe! There was plenty of time for Nintendo during the long freakin winters.. The only thing we had to worry about on our dead end road on the top of a mountain was the bears, but Fish and Game insisted they'd never eaten a child! They're all adults now and really appreciate it.

You'd just roll around in the back LOL I remember my first drive in movie... Amityville Horror and the lil snack guys singing "Let's all go to the lobby... Let's all go to the Lobby...

My brother and I used to build forts. We at one point live way out in the country, and the house had an abandoned Milk Barn (with a few other barns as well) on the property. We cleaned it out on day and use a bunch of old lumber we found to build a bridge across the pit in the milk barn. How that old wood stood up to us running back and forth I will never know LOL it was only held up by the side walls of the pit, and a support beam held to it with some old string we found. We would spend hours out there, and when our friends would come over it was so much fun. And it was a different world when it would snow. I miss those days

lol, I actually know about Lawrence Welk. My in-laws love him and the show. We played some of his music for their anniversary.

I grew up mostly in the 80s and I had a perm. My mom's friend did it and I looked like a poodle. I didn't realize it at the time but, boy, when I look at those pics I think: What was I thinking?????

I remember Atari, PacMan, Top Gun, Dirty Dancing, The Goonies, Breakfast Club, - don't you forget about me! ...

BTW: Caffinee is joining in. Not in the middle of the Dead Sea but having too much fun - lol. I am jealous!Smile I told her she had to say yes.

Found this post on Artistic Outpost - cool idea:

Color preferences: My favorite color is purple & I love lavenders and greens. Most colors are fine I'm just not a fan of bright or neon colors ( I was young in the 80's so did the neon thing.. wth was I thinking??)

Anything special you want your partner to know: This is only my 3rd swap & I've never received an altered bottle before so... anything goes Smile

OK, sign me up ...

No one has mentioned Go-Go boots ... I was so annoyed with my mother that she wouldn't buy them for me ... I had a Suzette doll, not Barbie ... she was the Sears knock-off ... and yep, you played outside till my dad whistled for me, and once I heard that whistle I'd better get home mighty fast. And you were allowed to play on teeter-totters and metal monkey bars just set up in sand ... oh the dangers we were exposed to and yet we survived.

I don't remember my first jeans, I just remember that in those days they were mostly made for men and if you had hips it was impossible to buy a pair that fit right.

And I wasn't allowed to wear pants to school till grade 13 (yep we had 5 years of high school ... they stopped that the year after my kids finished HS) ... even the year we were allowed to wear pants, they couldn't be any pants, they had to be a 'pant suit' ... I still remember some of those BigGrin I remember in grade 4, I got in trouble because I wore snow pants to school, and conveniently forgot to bring my skirt, so I had to wear the snow pants all day ... my grandkids do have a bit of a dress code ... no spaghetti straps, your shorts have to come to the tips of your fingers, no belly shirts ... it may not be for high school, cause all the rules are for the girls so DGS never complains ... I remember a big deal in grade 12 or 13 when one of the boys showed up at school in sandals without socks ...
