Thread: What Imagery Comes into Your Mind when You Think of a Certain Member?

    I didn't "do" mung beans SPRV ... I'm not that "Hippie Vego".

    My music taste was exactly like yours with a lot of Woodstock artists thrown in. Big on Joe Cocker, Patti Smith, Beatles (naturally), Carly Simon, James Taylor, Joan Biaz, Joannie Mitchell, Arlo Guthrie etc, etc. Big fan of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and huge fan of Neil Young as well. Watching "Forrest Gump" was a wonderful trip down memory lane for me. A lot of what happened to me (except the drug taking) was reflected in the character portrayed by Robyn Wright. Google "The Amazing Rythym Aces". Love their work !!

    Not an Animal House fan, but loved The Blues Brothers. Gone with the Wind is one of my favs as well as movies from the Golden Era (30's to 50's). The women were glamorous & often independent thinkers (Katherine Hepburn), the men were dashing, with matinee idol looks (mostly g*y as it turns out).

    One "irite" for me about Gen Y is their lack of manners when it comes to responding to emails, texts, messages (they don't unless they want something) & a fairly hedonistic attitude.

    Not a bob but it is blonde.... at the moment it is blond, curly (read frizzy most of the time) and just sitting on my shoulders. I am in the process of growing it again... and then I'll get it cut short.... and then I'll grow it..... the usual story.

    When she moved out of home I remember being mortified that she ate mung beans lol. I grew up listening to Crosby, Stills & Nash, America, Supertramp etc. I still play them all....really loud lol

    I also remenber..."If it's rocking, don't bother knocking"!! And "Hey Charger"!! And who could forget Animal House and the Blues Bros??? I named 2 pei I picked up from WA recently Jake and Elwood, when I took them to the vet the vet nurse looked at me and said..."where did you get that dreadful name Elwood from"?? She is obviously an 80's babe. lol I ensured that my 80's kids were well versed on important recent history like Monty Python and all the music I have mentioned. Often when I pull up at my son's home (they share a house) I will hear Crosby Stills & Nash or Neil Young coming from inside. On Xmas day we had Chicago playing and one son commented at one song that his bro plays that one all the time.

    I think the young adults of today have so much more to content with, it's a shame they don't enjoy enough of what the 70's gave us. I was so fortunate to "watch" from "once removed", it was no doubt a wonderful era.
    You must be around my age as I remember most of what you wrote about. The "Hey Charger" thing was with your fingers in a V shape wasn't it?? Sandman panel vans were also big.

    GSD, you rock! I think you may be my cosmic mother..I dress exactly like you did in the sixties.

    What can I say? It's fun, it's cheap (steal family's old clothes and re size them) and the clothes are way more comfy.

Certainly no pressure but if you feel like you would like to have a go, just let me know, OK?
    First of all, I am so honored that you think I'm this good of a dog owner! Actually brings tears to my eyes. I'm not in a position to foster (had to send little Miracle-dog I was fostering-back) I could, but I think with yr 12 coming up, I don't trust that I could give 100%.

    Although, if you need any assistance cleaning, socializing, walking, answering phones, running down to the shop to buy doggie food, I'd be THRILLED to help! Plus, I can give you a facial and experiment all my shampoos on you.

    Some would say I'm some sort of "Mother xxxx", that's for sure. My Nephews seem to like me as a person & not just because they may do well from Aunty's will when she carcs it. They're always in contact with what's happening in their lives.

    I must admit, the clothes I wore then were very free flowing, comfy and no-one ever talked constantly about dieting the way they do now. Guys seemed to like a bit of meat on a girl's frame. The only thing we had to worry about was getting pregnant.
