Happy Birthday Lizzie Girl!

Today one of my favorite people is having a birthday.  

She is 15.

I started to think back to when I turned 15 and I found myself laughing.  Her poor parents.  What they are in store for.  

So here it is...When I was 15.

When I was 15 I thought I knew everything. 

When I was 15 it was a leap year.

When I was 15 Ronald Reagan was President

When I was 15 The Apple Macintosh was introduced.  

When I was 15 the Winter Olympics were held in Sarajevo and Summer Olympics were held in Los Angeles.

When I was 15 Vanessa Williams resigned as Miss America after nude photos of her appeared in Penthouse.

When I was 15 Dynasty was the number one TV show. 

When I was 15 Footloose was my favorite movie.

When I was 15 the two biggest songs of the year were Jump by Van Halen (when they were the real Van Halen) and When Doves Cry by Prince.

When I was 15 the number one film was Ghostbusters.

And finally,

When I was 15 Bon Jovi released their debut album which had the hit single Runaway on it.  (It should have been Song of the Year but they were robbed.)

Man does that take me back, thank God I am not getting old.

Lizzie girl, we love you and hope your day is freaking fantastic!

* Charles & Diana got married
* First test tube baby was born
