HOLY SHIT! I MADE IT...1989...........


NATE, GUARDING THE A/C...



I am finally at the end...movies, music, world news and me...now that I have actually made it to the end..I wish I had started out doing the movies from the beginning too..Movies are cool..I saw more cartoon movies with the grandbabies than I did with my kids..mostly cause I took them to movies I liked not what they liked...The kids got to see Exorcist,Easy Rider, Rocky Horror Show and Hair. The grandbabies saw All Dogs Go To Heaven and all the Disney movies..Which I have to tell you N. still did not like...Jamie and Jennie were crazy about them...N. thought they were stupid beyond words..she wanted to see people..not cartoons..You should have seen the tiny little fist fights they had when they would come to the house..I would rent movies, we would have grandma's home made pizza,soda pop and popcorn.But first I would have to settle the argument of what we were going to watch...I would flip coins, we would do one potato, two potato, paper, scissors and rock to see who would watch what first...Jenny and Jamie wanted to watch cartoons and N. wanted to watch Batman. Oh man..what a mess..no matter who won or lost ..someone would be pissed..When I moved out here and they were older, it wasn't so bad as they were more interested in playing 'tarts'....and we had H. by then and we just sat around in amazement watching her play..she was so much younger than they were but she was all girl...she wore so much makeup we called her 'tiny tart'..I think the best part I liked was when I got Nate the 110 lb. pit bull...He was such a great dog..but his job in his heart was to guard the girls..well, it's hard to watch 4 girls running around the house, even as small as this one is...he would freak out..running from one kid to the next..which door to lay in front of..5 doors, so he was just running himself nuts and driving the girls crazy too as they did not want to be hovered over by this crazed dog..so finally one night he snapped..and he actually hearded them into a small group and into the corner of the living room and sat in front of them and wouldn't let them move. If they moved he got up and pushed them back into the corner with his head...I couldn't put him outside as he would sit in front of the door and just continuiously bark...and he had some bark...I finally got him to go and lay in front of the door that led to the outside and he fell asleep.
Now
to the events of the day..It was not a good year if you were a communist...U.S. plane shot down 2 Libyan fighters over international waters in the Mediterrianean.Emperor Hirohito of Japan died at age of 87.George Herbert Walker Bush became our 41st President...Read my lips..kiss my ass.

Nate reminds me of Bob, he always lays in front of the bathroom door when someone is in there. Sometimes he falls asleep and it's hard to get out!

Nate James said...

Great series JS, it's been a real treat getting to know more about you and the events that made you the person you are today.

I never knew Miss Kitty died of AIDS. Sad.

another one of my favourite aussie bands...midnight oil...the lead singer peter garret has since went into politics.

oh okay after reading both yers and babs comment I thought I wasn't seeing what you's were seeing.

jan said...

What a great trip back in time. I remember it like it was yesterday, in fact better than yesterday. The short term memory goes first. You really should write a history book with your own touch to it. I don't care what your blog looks like, I'll read it anyway.

Nit Wit said...

Now how am I going to remember what happened in the 90's. For that matter what happened yesterday?
I been avoiding reading this post because I didn't want it to end.
Well, it will be good to hear the gump get his ass handed to him again.
I have to take my joy where I can get it I guess.
What do you think of Kinky almost taking a position on Pot smoking?

cyberoutlaw said...

I'll bet a female dog would have known how to handle that situation from the outset. She would have grabbed all of them by the neck and put them in corner....oops! That's what he did, LOL!

Why is it ending? Did you stop having memories?
