Please come in and welcome to the Tuesday Chatter Cafe. A place where the clock ticks backward and we can chat about what may or may not happen. We dwell on thought-provoking and undeniably doubtful drivel.
1988, an interesting year for technology with the first transatlantic cable which was able to carry 40,000 phone calls at the same time. Great strides being made by technology creating a more communicative world, however, not without increased vulnerability. The first major computer virus infects computers. The US Stealth Bomber debuts. Lazer eye surgery is invented.
NASA resumes the Space Shuttle Program 2 1/2 years after the Challenger disaster, the Summer Olympics are held in Soule, South Korea, the Winter Olympics are held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. US average cost of new house $91,600 and the average annual income $24,450. A Ford Taurus is $9,996. and it’s .91 per gal. to fill it up.
1988 was a good year for movies – Rain Man, Beetlejuice, Crocodile Dundee II, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Die Hard, to name a few. I saw Rain Man a few times and still feel the acting by Dustin Hoffman was superb.
I have a little bit of personal trivia to share and that is I met the black jack dealer that was in Rain Man. We traveled to Vegas frequently and met him while playing black jack before he had a role in the movie. Then we saw him again after the movie, and he was the same fun dealer with many new stories to tell.
I attached a name to my whacky poetry style – Knick Knack Yak!
Ah, the beat goes on
That same old song
Needs to be restrung
Hey, I’ve just begun
Oh snap, get a grip
It’s gonna to be a long trip
Life has a two-fold meaning
We gotta keep singing
I feel the beat, it moves my feet
Don’t let the chinwag sag
It’s not cool when you brag
Be a dear, be sincere
This isn’t yesteryear
Don’t let words of ire
Fuel a senseless fire
Seek your inner soul
And let the social dice roll
