Tuesday Chatter Weekly

route-66-186861__480

Welcome to the Tuesday Chatter Cafe. A place where we can chat about this and that. Thought-provoking and undeniably doubtful drivel.

Nineteen eighty-five, a busy year helping others stay alive. The Live Aid Concerts were held during July of 1985, which were a series of rock concerts to raise funds for famine relief and around the world, the first group of Japanese astronauts were selected, the comic strip, Calvin and Hobbes debuts in newspapers, the eastern US has the coldest winter in recorded history, the space shuttle Atlantis is launched, British scientists discover a hole in the earths ozone layer.

Route 66 is removed from the US highway system – The highway was established in 1926 and spanned 2,448 miles in length. It was the subject in many a song, TV show, film and literature. The highway traveled through states Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. It was a popular route from the 1920s to the 1960s. It was replaced by an Interstate system and fell into disrepair. It was officially removed from the US highway system in 1985

The movie “The Color Purple” premieres becoming the fourth highest grossing film in 1985, Coca-Cola debuts “New Coke”, Michael Jackson buys ATV music and all of the Beatles songs for $47 million, the cost of new house $89,330, the average income per year $22,100. average monthly rent $375., average price for a new car $9,005.

 The compass has lost it way

For some a sun setting day

Living the moments thru magical lens

Hit the road in a Mercedes Benz

Shake a tail feather and go loop-de-loop

A sodapop world with a double dip scoop

Diners with a cuppa and culinary treats

Makes you wanna stay an take a seat

Memories to keep for show and tell

Life’s a hoot and downright swell

Turn by turn with lots of kicks

Memories fading in tattered pics

Gone is the legend, Route 66

    It’s too bad about Route 66.

      I agree. There is a lot of history attached to it, which reminds me of happy times in the USA.

    Love the flow of the rhyme,
    Chugging along keeping time
    Like the chitter chat round the washing line.
    wheels a clanking chugging and chanting through town and country the railway line.
    Like the tick of a metronome beat after beat your words a had me tapping my feet.
    😉 Happy Monday blogger!

    The lady who kept an eye on us while Mom and Dad were at work took a trip down Route 66 back in the Sixties, and I remember just wanting to hear all about it. There was something so cool about it back then.

    Your opinion: was New Coke a bad mistake or a great marketing ploy?

      I think New Coke was a marketing ploy. I believe they would be too smart to offer a product that wouldn’t be liked. What do you think?

    Such a shame about route 66. I have lovely memories of watching Live Aid. Such a special day.

    The train had stopped for me at a particular station in 1985. I met my husband, and it changed route. Guess I should call it Route 85.

    When I was a teenager I wanted to travel Route 66 just like the guys with the Corvette on TV.

    Lovely flow. I’ve read about route 66 in a couple of articles and it seems it was rich with history. You always amaze me how you bring all this together.

    Don’t know why but 1985 is not very clear to me… but I do remember “Live Aid’ (I wish there was another one now)… and of course Route 66…. Diane

      Some years seem to blur together unless there was a memorable event. The mid-eighties seemed to blur together for me.
