are you a child of the 70's?

Recommended Posts

Oh my. This brings back some great memories. I was born in 75 and I remember just about everything on the list but the 80s were great too. The Dukes of Hazzard one made me laugh because it was oh so true!


Kids nowadays just don't have it as good as we did! HAHAHA wink.gif

You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked.

And played it with the cutest boy in the neighbourhood, Teddy Roberts




You owned a bicycle with a banana seat and a plastic basket with flowers on it. Not to mention the tassels on the handle bars and the sparkly paint




You learned to skate with actual skates (not roller blades) that had metal wheels.

And wore a cool jacket, short's and hat with a pompom on it, all in satin of course!



You thought Gopher from Love Boat was cute (admit it!)

And we all wanted to be Julie




You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island .

But still wanted to visit




You had either a "bowl cut" or "pixie", not to mention the "Dorothy Hamill". Pixie cut was oh so cute, I could only dream of Dorthy Hamill hair with all my curls

People sometimes thought you were a boy.




You had rubber boots for rainy days and Moon boots for snowy days.

Don't forget that we graduated to Muck lucks, you know those great shaggy boots that the snow stuck to in clumps and by the time you got home you had 10lbs of extra weight on your feet

YEAH! You owned a "Slip-n-Slide" , on which you injured yourself on a sprinkler head more than once. < /SPAN>

Oh good times



You owned "Klick-Klacks" and smacked yourself in the face more than once !

Or better yet your brother


Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized possession.

Not to mention the bedspread, wall paper, lamps, and the whole collection of rag doll's where Amy was my personal fave



You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.

Still do, hehe



You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon.

We had to settle for Kerplunk, and pick up sticks, and who remembers paper doll's?



You had the Donnie and Marie dolls with those pink and purple satiny shredded outfits, or the sunshine family

Or the bionic man and woman an d the skin actually peeled away to reveal their very cool bionics


You spent hours in your backyard on your metal swing set with the trapeze. The swing set tipped over at least once.

not to mention all the stuck tongues in the winter


You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color. (Oh yeah! )

and the matching knee socks


You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle). You also had a pair of salt-water sandals.

oh the day's of style




You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really bad; you wore that Little House on the

Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffle shirt with the high neck in at least one school picture;

Oh once again we were stylin

a nd you despised Nellie Oleson!

But oh how we envied her doll collection


You wanted your first kiss to be at a roller rink!

Mine was, mmmmm


PONG! ("video tennis" ) was the most remarkable f uturistic game you've ever heard of !

Oh the edge of our seat tournaments we had


Your hairstyle was described as having "wings" or "feathers" and you kept it "pretty"

and maintained it with our butane curling irons

with the comb you kept in your back pocket.

And the boys were always stealing them

When you walked, the "wings" flapped up and down, looked like you were gonna "take off"

The bouncier the better, and washed with "gee your hair smells terrific"


You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as her friends, Blueberry Muffin and Huckleberry Pie.

All the cool kids did


You carried a Muppets lunch box to school and it was metal, not plastic.

Mine was Leif Garrett

With the thermos inside some were glass and broke the first time you dropped them.

And rusted your very cool lunch box


You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend.

And who was hotter Skarsky or Hutch, Starsky for me!



YOU had Star Wars action figures, too!

Oh the fun we had beating each other with our battery powered light sabre's



It was a big event in your household each year when the "Wizard of Oz" would come on TV.

Even better if you had a coloured t.v

Your mom would break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!

with the flannel cowboy and indian inside of the sleeping bag


You often asked your Magic-8 ball the question: "Who will I marry.

It was a toss up between Leif and Shaun Cassidy, and let's not forget about Parker Stevenson

Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or David Cass idy?"




You completely wore out your Grease, Saturday Night Fever, and Fame soundtrack record album.

Fame came later and if you were a child of the 70's you would know that



You tried to do lots of arts and crafts, like yarn and Popsicle-stick God's eyes, decoupage,

or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom. Let's not forget about maccermae, and rug hooking


You made Shrinky-Dinks and put iron-on kittens on your t-shirts!

With sayings that said great things come in small packages, and purrr-fect


You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape player up to the speaker.

or up to our record players that came in one piece and had a handle so we could bring it to sleepovers


You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat.

and covers were always cute boys not railthin models



You learned everything you needed to know about girl issues from Judy Blume books.

(Are you there God, It's me, Margaret.)

Yes she was the bible of teenage girls



You thought Olivia Newton John's song "Physical" was about aerobics. (?? its not??)

Again not the 70's, tsk tsk

You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with heart or r a i n b o w designs.

You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.

Oh the wonderful gibb brothers


You drowned yourself in Love's Baby Soft - which was the first "real" perfume you ever owned.

In a roll on


You glopped your lips in Strawberry Roll-on lip-gloss till it almost dripped off.

Oh how pouty our lips looked


Thanks for the trip down memory lane, but does anyone remember tassle jeanshuh.giflol.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
