Tuesday Chatter 78


Hmmm, there’s nothing better than a thought-provoking chat over a great cuppa coffee. Let’s talk about this and that and figure out where it’s at or do we really want to know? Undoubtedly, certainty is doubtful.

1978 was a popular year for movies and music. The Bee Gees’ “Saturday Night Fever” album is #1 for 24 weeks, Saturday Night Fever and Close Encounters of the Third Kind were all the rage in theaters worldwide. Other popular films were Grease, Heaven Can Wait, Jaws 2, and National Lampoon’s Animal House.

TV land offered some great shows-Happy Days, Little House on the Prairie, The Rockford Files, Saturday Night Live, The Muppet Show, The Love Boat and more. I believe these shows portrayed a much different lifestyle than we are experiencing today. What do you think?

Illinois Bell Company debuts the first Cellular Mobile Phone System, Space Invaders launches the craze for Computer Video Games, 98% of all Americans have a TV in their home, Super Bowl XII- Dallas Cowboys beat Denver Broncos, 27-10, NASA chose its first American women astronauts. A busy year, indeed.

1978 was a good year where life seemed to peak. Or perhaps it was an illusion due to the bouffant hairdos. Oh, and a closet full of polyester flares.

Let’s explore another cuppa living

While the relentless clock’s still ticking

Fading smiles as the curtain falls

The US dollar missed its call

It fell down and can’t get up

Teachers strike no doubt disrupt

Sweden’s the first to ban the can

Aerosol sprayers bruise the ozone layer

 It’s 25 years for “Son of Sam”

Price of gold reaches an all time high

Unemployment is at an all time low

Bee Gees and Travolta steal the show

Stayin Alive, Stayin Alive, and Heaven Can Wait

Don’t talk with your mouth full to know your fate

Most American households have a TV set

 Movies like Grease don’t miss a step

Gleeful memories in nineteen seventy-eight

Stayin Alive, Stayin Alive, and Heaven can Wait

Happy Days, The Muppets and a sarcastic cat

 Garfield, John, Odie, an award winning act

Saturday Night Fever thrills dancing supporters

Nothing much happens in apple-pie order
