The 80s…what a wonderfully weird decade of Atari video games, big hair and rock bands. It was also the time where children still watched Saturday morning cartoons, Kool-Aid was served with dinner and no one had a cell phone. Those were some pretty wonderful years, weren’t they? Let’s take a moment and reminisce shall we?
