    Thought this might be a fun game. This is the 30-something board, so we'll start with 1985; I'll take it, and the next poster takes 1986, then 1987 and so on. We each talk about what we were doing in the year we post. If we get to 2015 we'll just start over. So:

    In 1985 I was 5. I remember watching Turbo Teen and Transformers on Channel 46 on an old floor set TV. Out in the backyard I climbed an old tree, and played on my swingset from Toys R Us.

    A gallon of gas was $0.79 where we lived, in Mableton, Georgia. That year there was a really bad blizzard, and we walked to the nearby store to buy steamy doughnuts and hot chocolate...

    Alright, 1986, go!
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    In 1989 I was 5 and was learning to read in kindergarten and playing monochrome black and green screen games on the school Apple2. It was a country school and there were only two kids in my class. The other kid, a girl, could already read and she was my idol.

    In 1992, I was 8 years old and I remember wearing biker shorts, large t-shirts with weird prints on them, LA Gear sneakers, slouch socks, slap bracelets and feeling like the coolest person in the world. :D

    Sweden had just gotten its third (non-cable) TV-channel, and I remember being hooked on shows like Beverly Hills 90210, Full House, The Wonder Years, American Gladiators, MacGyver and Are You Afraid of the Dark. Good times! :thumbsup:
