To paraphrase a Fabulous Forum Friend: "As a kid the year 2020 was thought to be science fiction."

Yet many of us will be fortunate to see the year 2020 as a Reality in the Flesh and others in Spirit.

Wishing the Very Best To Everyone For a Great New Year!

I seem to be in the same league of your friend. Indeed, even 1999 in my childhood was some kind of futuristic era... Like the series "Space 1999" (at least in my home country was titled like that) set in a far fantascientific future... year 1999 😂😂

Happy New Year!

Like the series "Space 1999"
though it didn't hold up well I loved that 70s sci-fi show; not to mention it's predecessor UFO
(going now to go find and download these series for some flashback binge watching)

I remember as a kid thinking about how I would be so old (in my early 30s! :O ) when Prince's 1999 finally rolled around. Then when we got there, the world was going to go berserk when that new-fangled Internet hit Y2k and blew us all up. Now here we are, 20 years after the last time I lay dying in the hospital was AIDs and the Clinton impeachment, starting a new impeachment and living my best life - got some health and some insurance, on a tiny fixed income but I've got an income, got a house with only 29 yrs left on the mortgage, got a dog and ready for another, got a husband who helped healed a very broken heart after losing my previous 2 partners. what more could I ask for? :D  :-*



(I guess here in 2020 i could ask for my jetpack, robot, or transporter like I was promised in all those sci fi books I read and shows I watched. The dishwasher and google mini are the nearest thing 2019 gave me. LOL :D :D )

Well, if I think about it, smartphones we all carry around nowadays are really something you may have have seen in some of those series 😮😮
