Happy Birthday! Love To My Wonderful Son...

Happy Birthday!

On this day a few decades ago, (okay, that just made me feel old...) I gave birth to a little bundle of joy that grew up to become this wonderful man.

Just for grins and giggles, let's have a look at his birthdate...
Bread:  .53/loaf
Milk:  $1.79/gal
Eggs:  $1.11/doz
Car:  $9,890
Gas:  $1.28/ga
House:  $83,900
Postage Stamp:  .20/ea
Ave Income:  $27,391/yr
Min Wage:  $3.35/hr

Dow Avg:   1,047 (can you imagine if we had put a bunch of money in the stock market on his birthday????)

The President was Ronald Reagan and the VP was George Bush

What were we watching on TV?
Magnum P.I., Knight Rider, Remington Steele, WKRP in Cincinnati, CHiPs, Laverne & Shirley, M*A*S*H, Three's Company, Happy Days, Cagney and Lacey and last but not least, Dallas (from which Gman Jr's nickname from Grandma G came--JR--she was a big fan of Dallas!)

And Trivial Pursuit came out that year...and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Tron and Mattel Electronics Football II, Strawberry Shortcake Dolls and Magna doodle...

And songs?

Happy Birthday Son!  You make your parents proud!
We love you and will see you soon! 


  1. Happy birthday to your son! What year was your son born?

  2. You're a couple of years ahead of me--Oldest Son turned 29 this year.

  3. Wish him a happy birthday for me.
