Do you ever get the feeling that you are suddenly in the distant future, the future you used to read about all of the time but didn't think you'd be around to experience? Well, I do. When my wife and I were undecorating the Christmas tree in early January her iPhone rang. Two of our grandkids, ages 7 and 4, were calling and, as it happened, they also were undecorating their tree. Using FaceTime, we could see one another as we spoke and they showed us where they had dumped their now-forlorn tree outside. For them, it was just another experience in another day. For me, it was a Buck Rogers moment.
