1989 WP

Another great 'One Trivial Year' puzzle by Sploofishy. I really enjoyed reading up on this before the puzzle - it's so much better at the weekend when there is unlimited time to reminisce and discover new things! Isn't it strange how the mind distorts timescales!

Played 3 unnecessary safety moves but you can guarantee if I hadn't . . . . . . . . . !

More please (at the weekend)!

Classic quality WP. Always informative. More my type of WP than the cryptic one.

I thought this WP was quite interesting also. On these year WPs, I find myself asking myself either where was I that I don't remember that or was it that long ago. I like these puzzles. Wish i was so organized to study up ahead of time!

I was drunk and high as a kite from 1970 until this century, it's all a mystery to me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had four teenage boys in the 1970s. I was totally sober but the end result may have been the same!

As I get older, I realize I've lost the sense of how much time has passed since ... some event. It was jolting to see the Letterman stalker and Pete Rose's lifetime ban the same year. I could have sworn Rose's was much earlier than that. I do connect Gilda with that year, though.

This was an excellent WP, as always.

Thanks all! I'll have to figure which direction to go in after the 1999 puzzle - pre-50s or the 2000s, perhaps both alternately, or just recover the same years with different events. Input would be very welcome.

Nelly, I'll keep the weekend in mind when scheduling. Sometimes when the WP supply is low and I need to put a puzzle in but I don't have any other ideas, I might not have a choice. When possible I will.
