Let's take a walk down memory lane.

The date is September 19th, 1988, and it's a Monday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Virgo. The weekend has just passed, so some people are feeling a bit down. Others are tired after partying too much.

Schools and colleges are starting again, and fall has officially arrived. As a result, temperatures are beginning to cool, and trees are starting to shed their leaves. The earthy smells of autumn have started to fill the air. In America, the song Sweet Child O'mine by Guns n' Roses is at the top of the singles charts.

Over in the UK, A Groovy Kind Of Love by Phil Collins is the number-one hit song. Ronald Reagan is the President of the United States, and the movie A Fish Called Wanda is at the top of the box office. Margaret Thatcher is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Last of the Summer Wine", "Only Fools and Horses", "Murder, She Wrote", and "The Wonder Years". In fashion, women are wearing sweater dresses, short skirts, small shoulder pads, animal print, long full wool coats, and bulky sweaters. Meanwhile, men are wearing tracksuits, sweatshirts, Nike Air Jordan shoes, and denim. It's 1988, so the airwaves are being dominated by music artists such as Phil Collins, Bobby McFerrin, the Pet Shop Boys, Belinda Carlisle and Rick Astley.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Roy Orbison, Sugar Ray Robinson, Ruhollah Khomeini, and Mel Blanc would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Missile Command", "Maniac Mansion ", "Mega Man", and "Final Fantasy". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "The Bugs Bunny Show", "Danger Mouse", "Dennis the Menace", and "Garfield and Friends".

Children are playing with toys such as the Easy-Bake Oven, Cabbage Patch Kids, the Big Wheel (tricycle), and Hot Looks (fashion model dolls).
