It Was Twenty Years Ago Today

In the summer of '88, I was working the late shift at the Davis Square Store 24 in Somerville, Massachusetts to earn my drinking money.

On August 8th of that year (8/8/88), we had a lot of people come into the store and play 8888 on the lottery's Daily Number game.

Not a single 8 came up that night.

Just thought I'd share that with you.

Also, from 1988 (found it while cleaning the garage):

To Bruce,
Keep rockin'.
Love Joan Jett

UPDATE: Also from the cleaning of the garage, comes these two items from the "How Friggin' Cool Am I?" files.

Summer 1986: Sonesta Hotel - Portland, Maine

Sammy Hagar

Bruce -
Get down!
5150 style!!!
Michael Anthony *VH*

Needless to say, the girls who were enjoying their beverages at Michael Anthony's table were ridiculously, freakinsmokinhot.
