Thursday's Thirteen: You were a little girl in the 70's if:


1. wore that rainbow shirt that was
half-sleeves, and the rainbow went up one sleeve,
across your chest, and down the other.

2. made baby chocolate cakes in your Easy Bake
Oven. You washed them down with snow cones from your
Snoopy Snow Cone Machine.

3. had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a
stethoscope that actually worked. After training with
these tools you became an expert at the game

4. owned a bicycle with a banana seat and a
basket. In the early 80's you moved onto the ever
popular 10 speed. Gosh that seat hurt.

5. ever owned roller skates with metal wheels and learned to skate on the sidewalk in front of your house. had rubber boots for rainy/snowy days. Your
shoes actually fit inside the boots (with a little
help from your Mom and some plastic bags).

7. wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.

8. spent hours out back on your metal swing

9. wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really
bad; you wore that Little House on the
Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffle shirt with the high
neck in at least one school picture; and you despised
Nellie Olson!

10. was a big event in your household each year
when the "Wizard of Oz" would come on TV. And make
popcorn in a popcorn machine that you had add oil too and to shake occationally.

11. ever asked your Magic 8-Ball the question:
"Who will I marry, Shawn Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or
Rick Springfield? "

12. used to tape record songs off the radio by
holding your portable tape recorder up to the speaker.

13. ...You made flattsies in the a mold in the oven.

I have one thing to say: rollerskates!

Janice said...

Hi Gled,

The roller skates that I learned to skate on was probably a lot different than yours. Mine were metal and fit on your shoes.
