The number one movie of the year was: Jaws.


A postage stamp cost .13 cents.

  3. Cool. I've been collecting that sort of thing for 1964, along with movie trailers, TV ads etc, for my website, since that's when my novel takes place. One day, I might even pull the website together.

    I enjoy your site so I'm coming back more and more. I like this Friday Flashbacks idea too.

  6. Marsha,

    I can't help when I was born. *Grins* The very fact that I was able to grab the latter end of 1979 was a feat worthy of song. LOL :-) a friend of mine and I love to tease her husband about being an 80's baby since she and I were both able to catch the 1970's before they ended.
