Meet the Jetsons!

I used to watch The Jetsons religiously when I was a kid. I wanted the moving sidewalks, the tv phones, the robot maid. I wanted to be zoomed up to my living room in a clar plastic tube thingy. Even now, I would love that instant dressing, make up & hair machine. Oh & that instand food machine too!

I wanted to live in that house! That's not unusual for me though, seems like I generally suffered from "home envy". I also wanted to live in the Brady House. I don't think it had anything to do with the house itself though. Except for the Jetson house of course.

It probably had more to do with the family & way of life portrayed in the shows. Not that there was anything wrong with my family. Quite the contrary, I had a great family & a great childhood. I had both my parents & 2 brothers. But I was always fighting with one brother. And you never saw that on TV!

I even at one point wanted to live in the Walton's house (g'night John Boy) or the Ingall's house. For crissake. "Little" freakin' house on the Prairie. Walking a gazillion miles to school & back. No indoor plumbing! But, they never fought! Just for the record, we were not scarred for life due to our constant bickering. We both get along. Now.

Anyhoo, I just went off on a tangent. The point of this post is to see if you had seen this. That it may actually be around in the near future is quite scary. It was fun to imagine as a kid. But now, knowing how it is to drive in a metro city & being very familiar with road rage, I'm not too sure. What do you think???

Oh and here is a funny video from my YouTube addiction.

It's so funny to think about what we thought the future would look like. My dad told me when I was a kid that we'd be in flying cars by the time I started driving. And my first car was a 1983 Buick - probably made the same year he told me that!

I totally believe that one day we'll all be flying instead of driving around. However, can you imagine the gas prices! LOL!
