Memories on Monday

Jamblogging

Memories are a wonderful thing, if you can remember them correctly. I find that details become lost as time goes on. Even things I think I will never forget seem to get lost in the muddle that is my brain. So, a wonderful tool to help preserve memories for me is my camera. I have learned over time that children change and grow daily and I should be taking a picture every day. This is a goal that I need to work on, but I am getting better.

JAM has started this fun Memories on Monday's. I think it is a great idea. I was in need of a little prompting to remember some of my memories.










Yes you guessed it I am a product of the 80's, and yup I am stuck there. (some things anyway) As far as I remember it was the best decade, everything about it was over the top, the hair, the clothes, and the music. Remember all the hair-bands?? I was in high school and what was better than those days?

This last summer my absolute favourite band came to a locale close by and we got tickets. This was the second time we have gone to see Def Leppard together. When you hear those songs of yesteryear, it takes you back. While at the concert I looked around, it was mostly couples our age. You knew that they had kids at home and jobs to go to the next morning. But, like us they were back in the moment, a moment that was carefree.

Be sure to drop by JAM'S Own Reality to check out some other memories. It might just take you back.

I love memories - and photography is certainly a great way to keep them! Hope you have a great week.

Oh wow! What a good idea! Hmm! Concert looked like it was fun! I agree, photographs are the best way to record memories!

And we went to see Aerosmith a couple of years ago for precisely the same reason. Except that Aerosmith appeals to many generations because of their massive comeback.

Pour some sugar on me, ok?

Hey - I am totally a child of the 80s too. Have you heard that song 1984 by Bowling for soup? It always cracks me up. I think I may just play along with th is one too. :)

I was all about the big hair and big hair bands too. Pour some sugar on me was the song to rock to.

For me it is the Stones, cause I'm a bit older than you! And I wish I would have taken some pictures. I only have the memory in my head and it's getting a bit foggy!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing today.

Love the memories.....

Sometimes I like my memories better when I've tweaked them a little:)

Isn't it funny how you think you have no time in hs and then you get in the real world and REALLY have no time?

I moved to a new site! Check it out: www.aduckinherpond.com.

Awesome. I'm a little too young to remember the 80's music though (sorry :( )

Bee and Rose said...

Ah...the 80's...I love those big "hair" bands too...I still love me some Aerosmith..(not a hair band, I know..but still rockin')

My husband is all about that type of music. i was raised listening to the (then) "Oldies" so never got into this kind of music. But, no matter what kind of music, concerts are always a good time!

Kate said...

The 80's, yeah I remember. Great idea. I do miss so much of that music, good thing we have memories.

Oh my dear, you are such a young thing!!!
Great post with great memories. I have a few memories of the 80's as the kids were older. I tell people I have no memories of the 70's beyond vomit and diapers. But ask me about the 60's!!
