Posters of our past

Kids today have various options for decorating the walls of their bedrooms - not just posters but also murals, chalkboard paint and removable wall graphics. But when I was young, posters were pretty much it.

So when I see my 9-year-old happily hanging posters of the things she loves - puppies, kittens, the Jonas Brothers - it takes me back, as I write about in today's column.

Think back to the walls of your bedroom or maybe your dorm room. Did Farrah Fawcett greet you each morning? The Grateful Dead? Miles Davis? Cindy Crawford? The Beatles? Bob Marley?

Or perhaps footsteps on the beach, Monet, movie posters or baby animals with inspirational sayings - "Don't let the turkeys get you down!" - were more your style.

Go ahead, share your poster memories.
