    Ah...I loved the eighties.  1981 was my year.  However, I'm glad they're over.  Being so young then, that decade seemed to last the longest.  The early nineties were a little slow also, but after 1994, the years just flew bye and it seems like 2000 was only yesterday.  It’s remarkable how your perception of time is accelerated by age.

    Just to mention...and I know this, you couldn't possibly be in your twenties if you remember the seventies...you might want to feign ignorance if you want to be 23-25. Wink  Don't worry, I won't tell.

    I grew up in the seventies... for 8 months. I remember jamming to ABBA in my cradle. I played a mean rattle, yo.

    Technically, you could cheat and say that 1980 was also part of the seventies and that gives you an additional 12 months.  Round up 8 months to a year and that gives you 2 whole years in the seventies. Smiley

    Too young to really remember the 70's or at least anything associated w/ that time period.

    The 80's the only time period where you could wake up on a Sat morning and watch cartoons all day. 80's also brought us break dancing and fat laces... nothing like a new pair of Kaepas and some fresh fat laces..YES!   =)

    I was born in the seventies, and i still have very faint memories from my very early childhood. One of which is being pushed in a wooden wheel barrow by gorgeous hippies type women wearing garish patterned clothing.

    It's strange what your mind hangs onto.  LS

     

    The Banana Splitz were cool Smiley
