MEKALEKAHI MEKA HINEY HO

ROFL!

Yes, I am a child of the 80s and proud of it! I had the first mullet in my school for one day, until the other kids laughed at me and I went and had the rest cut off, too. I did wear jelly shoes but I DO NOT like #24! I also had big hair......used plenty of Aquanet! LOL

Guess by the 80's I was a respectable member of the community or some such nonsense. Read the whole list, only once, and just can't relate. I missed some decade, just can't remember which one.

I can't believe there were 67 things worth remembering from the 80's.

The 80's? When was that? Oh yea, that was when I was single, had my own apartment, had my Harley, and gas was .89 cents a gallon. Disco still sucks also you could buy a 1/4 pound of roll your own for a hundred bucks.

I know what you mean Dats. I blew my wad in the late 60s. By the 80s I was hunkered down at work. In the 90s I was putting kids through college. I didn't get most of the list.

Sadly, I had a mullet from 1985 to 1990! Too bad all the photos are not digitized!
