Ten Years Ago…

Ten Years Ago…

  • “Yeah” by Usher topped the Billboard Hot 100
  • Gretchen Wilson’s “Redneck Woman” topped the Country charts
  • The Detroit Pistons and Los Angeles Lakers were playing in the NBA finals
  • Alexander Ovechkin was poised to be the first pick in the NHL draft (going to the Washington Capitals)
  • Ronald Reagan died at the age of 93 from complications of Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Brood X 17-year Cicadas covered the trees in Ohio
  • Gas prices crept to $2.03, breaking the $2.00 barrier a few weeks earlier and sending people into a frenzy
  • MySpace transitioned from a file hosting service to a social networking site
  • thefacebook.com turned 4 months old.  Miami University students would begin joining 3 months later.
  • Apple’s iPod mini was introduced (in five colors!) and the iTunes store began to go international. (The iPhone would come out in 2007.)
  • a first-run movie ticket cost an average of $8.00
  • I married the love of my life.

Some things have changed.  One thing hasn’t.  This man is my world.
