Cher you must pick which song & let me know okies? Remember you don't have to write a poem to sing to the tune of the song. Just play off of something in the song! You could almost workl the above verse into maybe the Name Game? Light & Love Cher!

Congratulations Tim on your HM. I enjoyed the trip down memory lane. I still have one small T.V. with one rabbit-ear we bought in 1984. That T.V. still has a great picture in color and so we have kept it. I am trying to teach my youngest about all of these items that have changed so much over the years. It is hard to keep up with the new things coming out. Aloha, Connie

Tim, what a nice, simple, on topic, creative and nostoligic entry. Sometimes, simple is better and this was a terrific and entertaining read in so few words. Thank you for sharing this with me through my contest. Joe
