Who shot JR? Seriously, I really don't know. I used to watch Dallas all the time but for some reason or another I never saw the conclusion to that mystery.

I thought it was JRs wife but might be wrong. Didn't they kill Bobby and then say it was just a dream? I worked with Patrick Duffy. Weird man. Very large head. I mean LARGE. Too much tanning bed too...he was orange :eek:

I'm a little sheepish that I know this, but it was Kristen who shot J.R.

and Bobby died supposedly in Pam's dream.



Wish somebody would re-run that thing, I'd watch it all over again,

probably!!

Thanks for clearing that up, Val! I recalled the dream fiasco being Bobby's death but couldn't remember for sure who DID shoot JR. I still can't believe they wrote off an entire season as a dream. That's when I stopped watching. :(

"Lite Brite, Lite Brite! Turn on the magic of colored lights!"

Yeah!

When we were kids we'd use the patterns to make pictures or spell out our names with the Lite Brite.

When we got older we used to consume substances and make psychadelic patterns or try to recreate beer logos.

Fun for all ages, indeed.

Of course now I'm a mature young lady and I do not play with Lite Brites anymore and will deny any wrongdoings with one in the past.

This sounds like fun!:) The 80's are my favorite decade, I love remembering this stuff. The 80's are special to me, I graduated from high school in the 80's , and I also got married.

Some of my favorite TV shows were macgyver, the A-team,

movies- return of the Jedi-big crush on mark hamil, Indiana Jones, breakin, conan the barbarian, ghostbusters,

I still have my cabbage patch doll, and my rubiks cube.

Thankfully I never wore the stirrup pants:wah:

the 80's were a incredible time in music, there was so much going on, the beginning of MTV and so many different styles to choose from. I was a big fan of Prince and Madonna's early stuff, and U2 and of course Thriller.
