My dad on the other hand was 23, and who knows what was going on in his life?? Lots of working in the woods, I imagine. Getting lotsa girls, he was a good looking guy. Even though he probably had already started loosing hair on the top of his head...
My husband was 5 years old during 1985 and he was probably living somewhere in Colorado, doing his little boy thing. I bet he was jumping off 3 story buildings with his bike and giving his poor mother a damn heart attack. -- He says this is the reason he doesn't want kids... LOL.
