You remember the 1980's if.....



I want to try a new game. I have to credit Rodmonster for this idea. He posted something about the 1970's and I want to try a different twist on it. I hope its popular with all of you.

I call it You grew up or remember the 1980's if. You can name anything that was associated with the decade of the 80's.

You mention something and the next person will as well. I will start it off.

You grew up or remember the 1980's if.....you stood in line for hours just to get your hands on a Cabbage Patch Kid.
