1979: The Year of Jake

Jake turned 31 erm, "29" this month. We celebrated by driving to Pigeon Forge in a hail storm! Fun! We're here for AdventureCon, a pop-culture convention. (Basically the lame little brother of Comic Con in San Diego.)

In Honor of his birthday, here are some "Back in 1979" facts!

In 1979 a gallon of gas cost $0.86 (HOLY COW.)

In 1979 a Sony Walkman cost $200, that's more than an iPod.

In 1979, YMCA was suing the Village People for ripping off their name. They lost.

In 1979, Pink Floyd released their album "The Wall" (which was my lullaby album in 1988, Chucky-Sue has only listened to "Another Brick in the Wall")

Strangely, in 1979, Trivial Pursuit debuted, and in 2010, Jake DOMINATES this game.

Jake shares a birth year with Katie Hudson, Heath Ledger and one of his favorites, Jennifer Love Hewitt

And why do I bring this all up? To remind Jake that I wasn't even a twinkle in my daddy's eye when all this was going on! Happy Birthday you ole fogey! I love you!

thanks for the reminder of how old I am. I was born, today 4pm. My mom had no clue she was in labor with me. (I was supposed to have been born on Mother's Day.)
