Blast from the Past

Well today, dear readers is a slightly better day.

When in doubt, especially in the cold, it's time to dig out the old comforts. A bit of Nigella, Rosella tomato soup, ye olde wrestling (it's from 95 and that's what? 11 years ago? I was a fan then. Now I'm showing my age), then I start to Google to find out what happened to one of the female wrestlers from yesteryear - Bull Nakano. Who it turns out has lost half her weight and become a pro golfer. As you do. As opposed to Alundra Blaze/Medusa who had her implants taken out and became a monster truck driver. As you do.

Anyway back to the point at hand or the picture to the left to be exact. Back from the days when Rock was a form of music and not a wrestler turned actor (not that I'm complaining), when men had big hair and wore make-up and were still men. I give you, Bret Michaels! Lead singer of Poison. Yes, I know now I really am showing my age!

Furthur clues? Let's see Back to the Future movies, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the original Batman movie with Michael Keaton, dig a bit deeper and I offer you the A-Team and the undoubtable Mr T, Short Circuit and Benji! And now for the final nail in my coffin (won't be long I'll be popping off from old age) how can I not mention He-Man, Voltron and Transformers - the first time round as I realise they've come back a number of times.

Not hard to guess what era I am a child from is it now? I count myself fortunate I wasn't a child of the era that had Power Rangers. EWWWWW!

An action and adventure girl I am, preferably with pirates. Speaking of pirates, I still haven't sourced the new Knit 1 locally. I'm thinking of ordering from the Woolshack as I want some bamboo double points, another thing impossible to source locally.

Happy Easter!
A bona fide old and cold red head and not happy about it.

So glad you are feeling brighter, good old Nigella and Rosella tomato soup works for me too.

Isn't it funny how we can tell what era we grew up in simply by what was 'in' at the time. I remember my lil sis watching the power rangers they were so corny even then!!!

Suzi, if you want to do an order from the wool shack, so do I, maybe we can combine postage and save a few $$. Let me know if you are interested as I think it is $12 regardless of order size?

I remember that stuff being in too, except the wrestlers as I wasn't into that. You're not old, your just "well charactored"!

I remember Young Talent Time, F Troop, Get Smart, Magic Roundabout, HR Puff 'n' Stuff, Thunderbirds, The Mickey Mouse Club, Aunty Jack, The Banana Splits and they were mostly in black and white.

By jingies that's showing my age.

I can tell you are from the same era as me! My son can't believe they had Transformers when I was a kid! I loved Poison and wrestling - I remember GLOW, Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. It was a hoot! I watch the Surreal Life, and the newest one has CC from Poison and Tawny Kitaen. Hard to believe they were in their hey-days twenty years ago! Makes me feel old...
