While googling around for interesting "stuff" related to my previous post today (see below), I decided to type in 1971, the year of my birth. What fun! Here's a Meme for anyone up to the task: simply type in your birth year into a google image search and post any interesting photos you stumble across. I am looking forward to seeing what you find! Who knows, maybe I'll even come up with a prize for the most eclectic group of images...In the meantime, here's what I came across:
1971 Audio Equipment: High Tech!
Which you might want to use to listen to the formerly adorable Michael Jackson.
Lovely hairdos, ladies.

This babe was born (we might be friends!).

This poor dear died (now I feel ancient).

A 1971 cartoon in honour of Earth Day (even then we lamented).

F1 Car racing looked like this. I think I would prefer it to today's races...

Which I would rather not watch on a t.v. like one of these (we had one like the bottom row; third from the left).

And last but not least, I was sad to come across this photo, of the Twin Towers, being constructed, in the year of my birth. I remember caring for my oldest son, just a babe, as I watched them go down.

    This was an interesting meme..I'm going to try mine out.

    I have a photo when I was on the Statan Island Ferry..In the background you can see the Twin Towers the yr before.

    Oh my...time flies, doesn't it?
    I feel so retro looking at those things, but retro in a good way.
    How cute was Michael Jackson there! :)
    You're right, this is a fun meme.

    Great meme Cathy and quite different from the usual ones :).

    Hope your week has started off well.

    I'm a little behind on blogging my post right now, but this sure is one that I will have to do. Yours was very interesting.

    That is a very unique meme. I just might do it myself.

    I would love a peach cake recipe! Send it my way whenever you get the chance! marensijbrich at yahoo dot com. Thanks for the offer.:-)

    Oh! This one is great! - I'll do this...Maybe for my Birthday though. Is it bad to save memes for a rainy day?

  1. Blogger Chamki said:

    great idea!

    How did you think of it?
    I'm going to try this in a while too.

  1. Blogger Tee/Tracy said:

    That's a cool meme idea. I may just take you up on it in the next week or two. (I love Google :)

    Michael Jackson was so cute.

    The picture of the towers was sad. I was at home with my son Nick, then 3 years old, when they came down. I was also 7 months pregnant with Julian at the time.

  1. Blogger Cisco said:

    The best meme I've seen. I am going to try it as well.

  1. Blogger marellecone said:

    I was born in 1971 too. Thanks for the idea. How are you? Hope all is well.

  1. Blogger Hope said:

    This was very clever...I am going to have to give this a try!

    It's been a long while since I have been by, but I am glad to see that all is well! This is a great post, and I loved all of the pics, too! :) Wishing you and yours a gerat weekend!

    That is a fascinating thing to do -

    My little guy came back from camp
    and said
    "We listened to Michael Jackson in
    the shower.
    ...but don't worry - it was the
    music - he wasn't actually there."
