    I just had an airline layover in Cancun. There was a Pat Benatar concert going on down the road.

    I used to have impure adolescent thoughts about Pat Benatar that the pope would have strongly condemned.

    Instead of seeing if I could get in, or even sitting on the balcony and listening, I just wished she'd shut up so I could sleep.

    You are old if you remember using those yellow, snap in adapter thingies that you needed to listen to the small records(45s, I think) I am talking about the things that kept the smaller records on the record player.

    When my kids' CDs get scratched, I tell them that all we had to do was nudge the needle over the scratched part of the record and we could still listen to the song.

    Remember 'Magic Markers'? My kids yell at me about calling them that! Apparently they are plain old markers now.

    Seems weird to be able to remember when MARKERS were invented!!!

    And BTW, the use of the word "impure" will get you busted here.

    According to goodsearch; Pat was born in 1953.

    We were watching Monk the other day and he pulled out an old camera with a flashbulb... my kids had no idea what a flashbulb was. They didn't think it was a 'real' camera! [​IMG]
