Made a quick run into town yesterday.... cracked corn for the birds, prescription for me, and wine for the chair time!


Dinner was an Omaha Steaks sole almondine, tomato, and corn on the cob. Had a nice chat on the phone with Edda. She filled me in on Trish's trip to the GOP Convention.


All I know. Happy Hump Day. Nuff said. Ciao.

July 20th
National Moon Day
(No Mullin, not you! ) (and no mooning either!)


Moon Day commemorates the day man first walked on the moon in 1969.
The Apollo Space program, begun by President John F. Kennedy, was created to put the first man on the moon. Apollo 11 fulfilled that dream, carrying astronauts Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin Aldrin, Jr. What an amazing and historic event it was!
On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 was launched from Cape Kennedy Space Center atop a huge Saturn V rocket. On July 20, 1969, the Lunar Module, nicknamed the "Eagle", touched down on the surface of the moon at Tranquility Base. Upon landing, Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong reported "The Eagle Has Landed". A few hours later, Neil Armstrong, stepped off of the Eagle's ladder, placed one foot upon the moon's surface and proclaimed: "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind".

I distinctly remember looking out the window at the moon that night and just being blown away at the thought a man could actually be up there on the moon! Still amazing to me all the space travel!

GOOD morning. So glad you got to chat with Edda yesterday.

There are so many reasons it is impossible for man to land on the moon, let alone put people on to visit and return them to earth... a lesson in something may be impossible only if you let it be.

I'm sorry for the fixation on a couple of paragraphs in Melania's speech. Her husband has "authored" books written by other people- design houses are largely licensing of names- so in her world, she wrote the speech. More important should be if the words were honest. For which there is no evidence they are anything other than authentic.
