SPACEMEN AND THE FUTURE

 I was lying in bed this morning thinking about how things have changed in such a short time in my life.

This got me thinking of the comics my brother used to read, particularly the Eagle comic.
Remember the spacemen in their spacesuits floating out in space connected by a long wavy tube, we all thought it was great but a fantasy, never ever imagining that it would actually happen in our life time.


This then took me on to the series StarTrek and how they beamed them up in a portal, disintegrating them and putting them all together at another destination.


Its a shame that I am so old because I fear that I won't be around for this, but if the spacemen came to be reality who's to say that beaming up won't be in the future.

We could both do with being beamed up to go anywhere now, it's getting to be a nightmare with both of us so decrepit now, lol. 

Do you see how my mind works? its full of rubbish most of the time. lol


Did a bit more to the book cover yesterday.
 As you can see, I've worked around the mirror and am now ready for some beads for a bit more bling.

  5. Technology has come a long way in a short time - if we could show the Victorians our mobiles, they would be amazed!
    Your book cover is looking beautiful. I have a dress with shisha embroidery on it and one of the glass pieces has come off. I was going to replace it with a sequin, but I think I need to have a go at proper shisha stitch. Yours looks great! I think I will need to have a practise first...
    Best wishes

  7. I am a mind full of rubbish also.. my mind never stops and one night this past week i woke in almost panic mode, thinking of being old and decrepit and alone and covid 19 and on and on and on..... i often think of all the things that were sci fi in our childhood and now are facts.

  8. My mind is also filled with junk thoughts. Mobile phones never cease to amaze me. I can have a video call with a friend hundreds of miles away. That's almost like being beamed there.

  9. Love how your mirror looks! Yes, hard to imagine which sci fi stories will become real.

  10. That book cover is stunningly beautiful, Briony!! I love it!! Yes, I wonder if there's ever been a generation where so much has changed in the sight of 70 or so years. Unfortunately I don't see the changes as being good ones and honestly don't mind having more years behind me than ahead of me. I have a hunch by the time the Good Lord takes me home I'll be more than ready to go. ~Andrea xoxo

  15. We used to get "The Eagle". Do you remember The Mekon? Scary. I bet you had the hots for him! Beam me up Scotty... before Briony whacks me with a rolling pin!

  17. I remember being at school and having to write about the changes we thought would have been made by the year 2000. Well, here were are now twenty years on! I remember thinking how brilliant it would be if we could see the person we were talking to on the other end of the phone, those with the curly wires attached to the wall, haha.
