    It was 1982 and I was 10 years old and I think in one day alone I may have watched the entire film five times back-to-back. It was on VHS tape. Do you remember them?

  • My Life Doesn’t Make Sense

    By A Modern Military Mother on May 10, 2013

  • It’s A Jumble Out There!

    By A Modern Military Mother on April 26, 2013
    I saw on Facebook a picture of a tape cassette and a pencil with reference to how the youth of today will never understand the beauty of this relationship.
