I should have known today was gonna go downhill when I posted the previous entry.It started the down spiral at 8:00 and ended when the door closed on the last kid there. What caused it? School pictures! No kiddin'.They wanted our class down there ASAP. Their breakfast was delayed, their routine screwed up. Sometimes, you can yank it all back into a 'normal' day after lunch (which occurs at 10:30 am.... ), but that didn't happen either.
FYI, today is the anniversary of the first picture of the Earth taken by the Lunar Orbiter 1in 1966. As I reminded one online journaler friend, I was just a mere child in that year . However, growing up in the "Rocket City" these types of rememberances hit home. If I've never mentioned it, the Space&Rocket Center is a awe-inspiring trip. I drive by it when I go to my Dad's house. There is always a thrill of seeing the Saturn 5 standing there as I pass by. Just a note here, I did get to see Miss Baker - , one of the first astronauts for the US. She passed away in 1984 and is buried there at the Space & Rocket Center. If you're ever this way, make sure you stop by there take the tour! Let me know if you're in the area!
Have a great Friday!!
