I am leaving.
Not for long, just for a few days, but it DOES mean that you will need to go without your 80's fix for 4 days. Or, just to tide yourself over, each day commit to looking back in my archives, to the beginning days of this blog, and read something that you missed. I'd like that a lot. You will keep my hits up and keep this site going in my absence, AND you won't suffer the 80's withdrawal DT's.
'Where is 80sMom going?' you may ask. Well, here's a clue:
Yes, I will be cruising aboard a ship just like the Pacific Princess of one of my favorite shows from childhood, 'The Love Boat'. Who didn't love this program?
I can remember my parents thinking this show was too adult and a wee bit too 'dirty', what with all the single people sleeping with each other 'without being married'. Oh, if only they knew what the future held for tv. Shows like 'Temptation Island' would come to make programming like 'Fantasy Island' and 'Love Boat' seem approximately as threatening to children as the Teletubbies.
But I watched this 'dirty' stuff anyway. Who out there didn't have a huge crush on Gopher?
So, in honor of me and my hard work every morning toiling for your pleasure, please click on something at this site every day that I am gone. Just come back for the next 4 days and read my stupid Ralph Macchio poem again or something. Do it for me, and for yourself.
I wonder if our cruise will have any interesting stars like the show always had. I'm sure we won't get Gloria Vanderbilt on board, as cruises are more affordable and are becoming more of a Joe Six-Pack kinda thing these days. Will the spirit of Ethel Merman be on board? Will Jimmie Walker stalk his girlfriend on the ship (this was, incidentally, my favorite episode - go figure!)? Will Charro be there annoying us?
Pretty sure that Charro won't be there - her boobs are too little by today's standards to qualify for a hootchie-coochie position on board even today's Joe Six-Pack cruising vessels.
