Hello I'm Chuck, The Real 80's Dude

It's Me, Chuck!

I grew up on the east side of Cleveland Ohio during the 80's. I currently live in Knoxville Tennessee with my Wife, Daughter, Horses, Great Danes and Cat. I also have two grown Daughters (and Grand Children).

Live music, Indians Baseball, fixing stuff, travel and spending time with my family and friends (not in any particular order) are things I enjoy.

This blog is about my journey, both past and present (with an 80's perspective).

Have a comment, wanna say hello, email me at thereal80sdude@gmail.com.

I'm also on a few social media platforms ~ SnapChat, Instagram & YouTube
