Good Times

  The 80's were awesome! I had a lot of fun in the 80's and the music was also awesome! Even Snickers appreciates much of the music from the 80's on the rare occasions we subject him to it. He's especially fond of Ah Hah's 'Take On Me' and Twisted Sister's 'I Wanna Rock' and 'We're Not Gonna Take it'. He's also a big fan of the 'Sweet Victory' song on Spongebob which is very reminiscent of an 80's tune.

Switching topics here, when the kids were young they used to watch Veggie Tales, a cartoon where cute vegetables attempt to teach kids morals through the retelling of various bible stories and fun silly antics. We aren't very religious (to put it mildly) but we always enjoyed the Veggie Tales. (with the exception of the episode with the pie throwing which some people found terrifying - but that's a story for another day). We even have the Veggie Tales Christmas CD which is a lot of fun and which until very recently we listened to every year to get geared up for the holidays.

Maybe you can see where this is going.

When I saw the CD "Bob and Larry Sing the 80's" at the library, I had to get it. I brought it home and proudly held it up for the kids to see. They all looked at me as if I had lost my mind. They are so too old for Veggie Tales now, Mom! Come on! Well, Mom isn't too old for Veggie Tales so we all got to listen to it in the car on our vacation. It certainly wasn't the best selection of 80's tunes, but it was fun to listen to our favorite vegetables singing songs from that wonderful era of yore. It brought back a lot of memories both from the 80's and from our Veggie Tale years.

Good times. :)
