It Was An Exciting Time!

I was born in 1970 and as the decade progressed I have so many memories. In many ways I feel fortunate to have been a child in the 70s and a teen in the 80s. There are so many things I miss. The 70s get a bad rap and I don't understand why. The music (in spite of a lot of one-hit-wonders) was inventive, fun and original. The movies: it was a golden age- movies tested boundaries and changed the film industry. The politics: from the break in at Watergate to the Iran Hostage crisis. AND THE TV! There seemed to always be something to watch on TV! I have over 300 channels now and hardly ever find something I want to watch. It's all reality TV these days. I miss the innocence of the time. I miss Saturday morning cartoons! I miss my Boo-Berry cereal. I miss the 70s so much.

You really summed up how I feel. The Saturday morning cartoons and Boo-Berry cereal, LOL! Good memories. I'm with you, being a kid in the '70s and a teen in the '80s was awesome. Though, I do envy those who were teens or twentysomethings in the '70s. But, hey, at least we're still young, ;-)
