Up, Up and Awaaaayyyy!

So, that rocket that I saw roll yesterday went up tonight. It was a great evening for a launch. The sky was perfect. It was one of the best launches I have seen to date. I hope I have not been saying that about all the launches...but this one was good. We went up to the Air Force causeway on the Cape to watch, it was a good! Very good. I am so glad we have the honor of knowing "three doors down" he is the one responsible for this stuff at our base :) No matter what anyone else tells you it's true, he IS the rocket boy and we know him!!!!

This launch was awesome because it was carrying the new miniature military space shuttle, that is just really incredible to me! I mean in the nose of that rocket was a little space craft, wow, totally nifty! I don't think that info is classified or anything, but maybe you shouldn't repeat it just in case :) Nah, not really, you can find out more then you ever even wanted to know about this launch here.






Pretty neat stuff!

If you are following the "moving" story, the packers were here today...it went really good. Probably some of the best packers we have ever had, they were very professional, they did not take excessive breaks, they did not smoke, they did not have BO and they worked very hard the whole time they were here. They were done at 4 o'clock, that has to be some sort of record especially since they didn't even start til 9 A.M. Anyway there are now just over 150 boxes located throughout our house and garage, you cannot forget the garage people, it's an important area especially when you are moving! The driver will be here in the morning between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. with a loading helper and Lord willing it will all be crated on site and that will all be done at a reasonable hour as well!

Glad to hear all went well with the shuttle and your packing. I do not miss those days where the movers come in and manhandle all your belongings. UGH! UGH! UGH!

I too hope they seal the crates at your home. That's always been the hardest part for me when they say they'll take care of it and it'll all be there in 3 years. SURE THING!
