October 21 2015 Back to the Future Day!
It’s here! The day Marty McFly show ups with the Delorean!
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!
