Flashback Friday

Obviously, the 1980s. Christmas.

Left to right: My sister Annie, my cousin Sarah, me, my cousin Stephanie, my sister Gwen. The odd passerby in the background, my brother, Matt.

I’ve been thinking about the 80s quite a bit recently. For one, when Anne and I had dinner together on Saturday, she told me about her recent experience working on the Oprah “Rock Divas of the 80s” episode starring Stevie Nicks, Pat Benatar, Joan Jett and Sisters Sledge. Quite a line-up!

From both the hair and clothing, I can tell that this photo, taken in my parents’ home, was snapped during the latter half of the decade, when four of the Hanson siblings lived in Iowa City (for a brief time) at the same time. And yes, that is a cigarette in my hand — proof positive that it is possible to quit, since I would venture a guess that many of you didn’t know I was ever a smoker!

  1. Why do I think of the group “Flock of Seagulls” when I see this picture – speaking of the 80’s
