Good morning to all, how are you? Me, had a long day today, for 2 days now, haven't got my afternoon nap, lol, been thinking of things here concerning My Uncle. My article here today's 'bout the Year where i was born and the images i'm going use and uploaded here are from Google. My year or the year i was born on to was considered as the best year or the best decade so far and was proud to be borned on that said year. This article's also inspired by the exchanges of replies i had with Sir @Peter-Molnar the other day, lol, got busy yesterday and a little lazy too so i wasn't able to write this one here, but now, will do it, lol, so here it is po :)

I was a 80's baby as i was born on 1983. 80's are considered as the best year and a best decade of all times 'coz of the neon clothes as fashion or clothes styles that time, 'coz of the games, the music, the tv shows, etc. Suddenly remembered a picture of My Father and Mother that time, just too bad i haven't got that said photo right now nor was able to took a photo of it to share it here, lol. The photo above's a pic collage i made for this article of mine here today.
