It was the late 80s. My favorite music was by Depeche Mode, Prince, Adam Ant, The Cure, David Bowie… I had discovered hair dye, colored mousse and cigarettes. I tried wine coolers for the first time… too much wine cooler that first time ensured it was the last time. I fell out of love with a boy named Nate who wore spurs on his Doc Martins…
Fourth of July just happens to fall on a Thursday this year, and since Thursday is celebrated as #TBT (Throw Back Thursday) I thought I might look back in time to a fourth of July a long time ago.
I lived in Somersworth, New Hampshire and think I had just started my gypsy/hitch hiking era. I can’t remember whose couch I was sleeping on around this time, but this photo was taken in the drive way of my parents house. I was house sitting for them. I spent my time writing bad poetry and doing things I shouldn’t.
Where were you in the 80s? Do you remember a fourth of July holiday from that time?
