JDP - thank you for reminding us about the FOOD!

I do remember one of my daily food staples back in my economics class in '83: a box of Barnum's animal crackers and a coke. (That was classic, before the "new coke" came about a couple of years later)


Anyone have a "tail"? You know, the long piece of hair, generally braided, at the nape of the neck?

My son was born in '83 and he had a tail for years! Poor kid had no choice.
So cute!
In fact, I still have it.

I was a camp counselor in the late 80's and we used to cut the tail off of campers who had them.

My son did!!!!! We never braided it, though! He was born in 1985 and we never cut it till he was 4. He looked sooooo cute with his little tail and his mini club clothes.

OK this one might be a bit obscure and maybe only people who had young kids or were young kids themselves in the 80's might remember this one...

Does anyone remember the show 3-2-1 Contact?

This thread has me thinking back to that time and more memories keep popping up. Such as:

Hair gel
Jovan Musk Cologne
A pierced ear for guys
Men's clogs
Androgony
Rap becoming main stream starting with Blondie's song Rapture
The synthesizer (sp) replacing whole bands
And possibly the roots for the modern day metrosexual male
