What was happening this day in 1988?

Today I thought I would have a little step back in time to 1988, 25 years ago: 

  • The Average Cost of new house was $91,600. 
  • The Average Income per year was $24,450.00. 
  • The Average Price for new car was $10,400.00.
  • 1 gallon of gas wa91 cents.
  • A movie ticket cost $3.50. 
  • Crack first appears in US cities.
  • The first major computer virus infects computers connected to the Internet..
  • The number one film of the year was "Rainman".
  • The number one song of the year was "Roll With It" by Steve Winwood. 
  • George H. W. Bush was elected President of the United States.
  • "America's Most Wanted" debuts.
  • Prozac is introduced to the public. 
  • "Yo! MTV Raps" debuts. 
  • CD's outsell albums for the first time. 
  • The first LCD screen is developed in Japan and was only 14".
  • And finally:
This clueless young man, and this immature young woman got married:

Goodness knows these past 25 years haven't been easy, but I can honestly say that I love this man 1000X more today than I did on our wedding day (until I just found out a few minutes ago that he thought our anniversary was the EIGHTH and not the SIXTH....so now I'm not so sure!  LOL)  

Happy 25th Anniversary Marty!  I'm looking forward to our next 25 years together!
