Last week I participated in a great kinda new LinkUp hosted by The Liebers and The Golden Spoons called #TuesdayTen. It was a lot of fun and I had the chance to share What’s In My Bag? with well…everyone! 😀
This week the Ladies are actually making me wonder am I really that old? How you wonder? This week they want us to look up the year we were born and share the Top 10 Headlines OR Songs.
So in order to do that obviously I had to do a bit of research on my birth year and some of the things that happened… I really didn’t realize I was that old! LOL Don’t get me wrong, I love my age…it took me a lot of work to get here but looking back can be an eye-opener
The prompt gave us the option of choosing the Top 10 Headlines or Song but since today is also #TunesdayTuesdayHop and I have made a playlist for my Kiddies Jams I decided not to overload everyone with music. So I’m going to go ahead a pick 10 of the Top Stories in The News and Events from 1978:
