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!

Party Pooper

That’s me…

We were invited out for Christmas eve. Jim and I both went. but he brought me home because I am beat.It’s really hard to throw yourself into a party and whoop it up, because of the month I just went through. People were drinking and singing along to You tube, but I was there in body but not in spirit.

Jim went back after dropping me at home, and with my blessing, as he truly needs to unwind.

Me? I’ll shower and go to be because that’s what works for me.

Good night!

Hootenanny

Mike our neighbor is over.

We are listening to You Tube, Jim is playing his guitar and we are singing songs of our youth.

**the two shots of whiskey I have taken are the best cough medicine to listen and sing along with.**

It’s good to kick back, and the fur children always enjoy Daddy playing music.

Life is good!
