The 80s

Our first was born in '81. The twins a few years later. Much of the decade was spent at home. Some of it's a blur. Landlording in Chicago - tales I could tell!

Not much into video games, but spent a lot of time on CompuServe, first on the Radio Shack Model I and then on the PC-AT.

I remember somewhere in there was a comic book explosion, lots of independents, small companies, and even the big 2 had some good stuff. Until the kids got expensive, I bought almost everything. It's all in long boxes down in the catacombs.

And disco gave way to actual music again. I remember that.

But mostly, diapers and high chairs, and eventually swimming lessons and pushing bicycles until they learned.
