1980s Flashback

While we're waiting for our referral, we thought it would be a good time to put our house on the market and move into something a little bigger before the next set of little feet start running around. Of course, this necessitates the purging of all things not seen since we moved here eight years ago.

In going through some of our junque, I found something from my wife's past that gave me pause and elicited a small chuckle. This is for my Aussie readers (both of you). Here it is:

For those of you too young to remember (or fortunate enough to have forgotten), Air Supply was a musical group fronted by these two gents: Graham Russel (the guy on the left, an Englishman) and Russel Hitchcock, an Australian. They had a string of hits in the late seventies and eighties and most of their songs can now be heard in elevators all around the world. These guys epitomize syrupy, saccherin enfused pop. According to their Wikipedia entry, they're still performing. Good on them.

It would have been amusing enough to have just found the record, but to have one autographed is just too funny for words. Apparently they made an appearance in Maryland, where my wife grew up and her friend worked at a record store and yadda yadda yadda, twenty five years later, we have an old Air Supply single turn up in one of our closets.

My question to her is this: Where were you when Springsteen was in town? An autographed copy of "Hungry Heart" would be epic.

Where are you thinking of buying? How's the market looking? Best of luck with selling the house.

We're doing the same thing. Our house is currently on the market, trying to get more space before our little girl comes home. Here's to hoping it sells soon! We've been on the market a long time. Apparently, our home is too small for everyone else too! :) Are you planning on staying in your current area?

Too funny about the album. You should sell it on ebay. There will be some hard-core Air Supply fans who would swoon to have it.

"Sincere wishes"??

The wishes could be good or bad, but at least they're sincere.
