Tears for Fears Early YearsTears for Fears~

Remember them?

Oh man they were great.

tears for fears 2009Man, when I think of them, it’s like

a time warp back to the 80s. I heard they broke up

for a while, but got back together in 2000

Nice!!

This song brings back memories of slumber parties and Friday Night Videos we’d try and stay up late to watch.

THEN AND NOW THURSDAYS

I stumbled across this remake, and it was great! I’m a pretty big fan of Will Smith, so I’m diggin’ this remake. Check it out.

THEN AND NOW THURSDAYS

Okay, so, this is a different flare to the normal Then and Now Thursday….but I couldn’t resist.  Wait, maybe I should have saved it for the Friday Funnies, huh?  I mean, check it out. Big hat, missing my two front teeth, oh, and that little shirt — what IS that anyway???

Sheri and Grams and Gramps

Yep, that’s me in the middle.

Puny, little, scrawny me. Can you see the two front teeth are missing?

I saw this while viewing the memorial DVD my step-dad, Ed, made for Grams’ funeral.

Yeah, this brought me to tears.

Of both laughter and sadness.

I guess that’s kind of what funerals are like, huh?

Memories that make you smile and sadness at what you will miss now that the person you cherish is gone.

This picture brought back fond memories of fishing with the grandparents, goofing around in the back yard until I could hardly stand I was so tired, and eating cake donuts.

Have you ever stumbled across an old picture that brought you back in time?

MonopolyGameBoard classicHave you ever sat and reminisced about what was popular when you were a kid?

Well…. “Then and Now” Thursdays is right up your alley.

Have you ever played Monopoly?

I played it a few times as a kid,

but I was never been a big fan of it.

Most of the time it was just because

I was too hyper to sit still that long to play a game. ***LOL***

OH YEAH Got to have the Star Wars edition!  I must admit, we have this one. LOL.

But seriously, it sure has changed

from when I was a kid.

Heck, they’ve got a

Monopoly for pretty much every theme now.

ESPN for all the sports fans out here.

Did you know it started selling in 1933?

Holy Moly it’s been around a LONG time.

**What was your favorite game piece? Mine was the race car….Hmmm, something to do with speed maybe?**
