If you were a little girl in the 70's . . .




You owned a bicycle with a banana seat and
a plastic basket with flowers on it.






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






You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island.





You had the Donnie and Marie dolls with those
pink and purple satiny shredded outfits.





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.






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





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


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





YOU had Star Wars action figures, too!





It was a big event in your household each year when the
"Wizard of Oz" would come on TV. Your mom would
break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!






You often asked your Magic-8 ball the question:
"Who will I marry. Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or David Cassidy?"






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





You had a subscription to Tiger Beat.





You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.





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




As for me . . . my big loves were Paul McCartney and Davy Jones of the Monkees . . . from the time I was a little girl I played acoustic guitar and the music of the Beatles and the Monkees are what I loved to play the most.
Many years after they were so popular on the radio and with their television series, I went to a Monkees revival concert at a local club and ran into Davy Jones as my friend and I tried to find the dressing room since I wanted to meet him in a bad way. He was as cute as he was back in the day in a little boy kind of way . . . he has the most beautiful smile I have ever seen. Oh yeah, I got a hug and a kiss. :)
