It’s Back to the Future Day!

October 21 2015 Back to the Future Day!


It’s here! The day Marty McFly show ups with the Delorean!

“We’re descending toward Hill Valley, California, at 4:29 pm, on Wednesday, October 21st, 2015.”

What, you don’t know what I am talking about? What do you mean, you weren’t even born yet?


The year was 1985.

Gas was about $1.20. I don’t think I ever bought gasoline under one dollar. I started driving too late for that.

There were no personal computers. There was no internet. Phones were attached with cords to walls.

What music was popular? I owned Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA Album. That was how you played music-on a turntable. Go ahead, Google it, it’s okay.  (I still have that album.)

Back to the Future was a great movie. Did I ever think about the year 2015 back then? Heck no.

Did I know Deloreans would still be around? Nope. But I did see this parade of Deloreans in the St Patrick’s Day Parade in  Cincinnati in 2012.


Here’s my 1980 mustang though:

No hover boards. Well, okay, a few prototypes. Thankfully, we never made it to Jaws 19, although there have been two Sharknado movies (so far).

Are you going to watch the movie today? I couldn’t find it on any channels on my antiquated TV!
