Do you remember 20 years ago?

How quick do we forget. Just a friendly reminder when the Inlaws come over and you need to Break the Ice. 20 years ago we had no Smart Phones Ipod Docking Stations and Gps in the Car. No HD Tv with 699 Chanels try to tell us how we need to slim Down. 20 years ago we could buy a Ford Escort as a cheap Car to get us to work and send off them pesty Teens to College. 20 Years ago having a 27 inch Sony at $ 2k was the Top of the Line.

20 years ago you needed a Rucksack to carry you Camcorder around. 20 Years ago Mercedes made Cars that would start because you just had to turn the Key and off you went.

20 years ago when you ordered a Big Mac you got a Patty between your Buns. 20 years ago you could be a poor Shoe Sales Men and you better half still you come Home with that fancy big Hair.

20 years ago your Knees did not give out when you went out on the Dance Floor to get abit frisky.

20 years ago the Beer was cheap you made a good Living and you could take that Girl with the big Hair to Red Lobster or the Oliver Garden rock her world on the Weekend and still have Gas Money left Monday Morning to make it to work in your Ford Escort.

20 years ago you have been the King of the Remote Control. You just bought that 2k 27 inch Sony ready to enjoy Tv at its Best. And than the Networks gave us Roseanne for Fall. What better way to lay down the Remote surrender 2 Foreplay with big Hair in the Bedroom.

Take a look at the Options we had watching Tv after we just spent 2k on the new Sony......

Yep how quick do we forget about the good ole Days. Lets face it Bay Watch hit the Airwaves Americans Bedrooms were rockingbecause of the Blond and David Hazzelhoff.

When Roseanne hit the Airwaves i just was like you i went to my Friends House asked for a $100.00 to invest in Jenny Craig Stocks. Funny how quick we for get about the last 20 years...

I can remember what I was doing 20 years ago.

But I can't remember what I was doing yesterday.

Does this mean anything?

Where am I? What am I doing here? Who are all these people?

20 years ago, if you bought a computer, you didn't know what the Internet was and you would have to use a dial-up modem to connect to a BBS system.

20 years ago, if you bought a computer, it had a 5 1/4" disk drive and it came with DOS 5.0. (DOS 6 didn't come out until January and Windows 3.1 didn't come out until April 1992!)

I was redeploying (ie coming home) from Diego Garcia after ops in support of Desert Storm.
We had a 386mhz computer with a whole meg of RAM and a 40MB HD!
On the up side, we'd just had a baby and now the Mrs is 8 dress sizes smaller!!
