Life with Momma

Sometimes I can’t help but wonder what is in my little girl’s head.

Sometimes I see her and she is hanging in front of the television, and I swear she is watching it, Usually if I move to my desk, she’ll wander over to see what I am doing, and lay down to keep me company.


I’m not completely dense, though. The photo above is her”wait on me I’m rich.” look. She is done her walk, and wants to go in to see her Dad.

I know my place.

Roger,Friendship 7

I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s , and if we were in class when any space craft was due to launch, chances were good that the nun or teacher has a black and white television in our classroom so we could watch it.

Honestly, I knew it was an event of historical standing, but, growing up, spaceships really didn’t rock my world.

Then,as an adult, I saw the movie,” The Right Stuff.”

This epic saga somehow held my attention and since then, I have read and viewed anything I could get my hands on.Be they documentaries on You-Tube or Netflix, or books by James Lovell on Apollo 13, I devoured it.

On February 20,1962, John Glenn, in his spacecraft Friendship 7, beat the flights made by Alan Shepherd and Gus Grissom by orbiting the globe.He was later, at age 77,back in space to read the Space Shuttle.

Now, at age 95, John Glenn has gotten the ok from the Eternal Mission Control for endless heavenly orbits.

Godspeed, John Glenn, and thank you!

Dodging the bullet…

…for a day.

Or at least three-quarters of a day.

Looking at the television, and seeing snow in Philadelphia, New York and other spots, when it came time for me to walk the girls in the rain, I was a happy girl. I even managed to get over 18,000 steps in today on my Fit Bit zip.

Because? Yes, I know “it’s coming.”The barometric pressure is coming down.The girls have been walked to the point of exhaustion.I’m beat too. Worrying about if we are going to lose power when the wet snow brings wires down.Do we have candles and flashlights?The house has everything and all we have to do is wait.

Stay safe,friends,especially if in the snow zone.
