just been sitting here flashing back to being a child in the 70’s & 80’s…..see if you remember these….
i soooo loved donny & marie! remember there was even a show?!?!  i even had the microphone that would transmit through a radio channel….just like being a star!  

how about this:

a holly hobby oven!  i just knew i was a chef at heart!  the amazing cakes that could be made just by the heat of a lightbulb!  yikes!!
now, no matter how hot my feet were….or how disgustingly sweaty my shoes were, i just knew i was “all that” in these shoes.  and what about the “Jelly Jackets” ???  were those TORTURE or what????   they were like a sweaty weight loss jacket….oooooh, remember how they would even steam up???? they would!!!!  oh yuck!!!!
ok, now admit it.  if you were a preteen girl in the late 70’s early 80’s, you read “Are You There God, It’s Me, Margaret”….AND you indeed chanted “we must. we must. we must increase our busts.”    (guess i should have chanted it a few more times)…
ok. how about lip gloss??  whether it was these little tins, or the HUGE chapsticks that were available in all different flavors, or the roll-on, ooey gooey gloss….whichever one was your favorite, your lips were definitely glossed up!
ok. so this last choice shows my nerdy side.  yes, i had a “little professor”.  if i remember right, it even had a strap that came out of his hat, which you could wear around your wrist, so you don’t dare drop your professor.  

ok.  so you’re either bored out of your mind, or you stopped ready a long time ago, or you are now travelling down your own memory lane.  enjoy.

  1. we may have missed all those years, in the same town, not even knowing you…eating at the place you worked at…but i’m soooo glad we are friends now! can’t imagine life without you!!! thanks!!!

  2. Awww…great memories. Especially the Lip Lickers! I always had those or the big Bonnie Bell tube in my back pocket while I roller skated (giant pom poms on my skates, of course). Thanks for the chance to reminisce. :nod:
