It’s hard to imagine what the next 50 to 100 years will bring !!  I know that in my 70 years I’ve seen so many changes but here is just a few:

  • Television black & white,  a 10″ screen, we thought it was amazing even watching the crazy test patterns

  • Gasoline prices – from 25 cents to $3++

  • Washing machines with no wringer and dryers, gosh no more hanging clothes outside in the winter – awesome

  • Typewriters to computers

  • Telephones – Party lines and dial to cell phones

  • Dishwashers – yeah, no more drying by hand

  • Rockets- launching a man into space – (Think of all the Sci-Fi movies prior to astronauts)

  • Shuttles – taking man to the moon

I know this is just a very small list of the changes I’ve seen in my lifetime (since 1941) but to list everything would be impossible.   Now think of everything prior to that.  So for me there’s no way to comprehend what the future will bring.   

I’m sure you’re wondering how in the world all of this ties in with an article about aliens, let’s just say for me it’s my way of realizing I believe in the saying “E.T. phone home” will become a reality…..flagranny2

Man Sues For $25,000 Over Hot Dog Injury – Irresistible News Story – WESH Orlando

Well I’ll be doggon, just when you think it is safe to attend a baseball game…flagranny2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. —  

 Baseball fans who sit six rows behind the third-base dugout at the Kansas City Royals’ stadium know they might have to duck a few foul balls. 

But a Kansas man says it was a flying hot dog, not a baseball, that almost put his eye out last year. 

John Coomer has filed a lawsuit against the Royals seeking more than $25,000 for injuries he sustained September 8 when he was smacked in the eye with a hotdog by the team’s mascot,  Sluggerrr.   

Coomer said the wayward wiener caused a detached retina and the development of cataracts in his left eye. 

The Royals declined to comment Tuesday. The team is looking for someone new to wear the mascot’s large lion costume, spokesman Toby Cook says there’s “no connection” with the hot dog affair.
