It's T Week!
Brought to you by A to Z Mondays. This week I have a special T. At least it's something that I'm always anxious to watch, on the edge of my chair.....even before you can see anything on the TV screen. The anticipation is always exciting for me. Not everyone feels the excitement, but for me, every time is like the first!
The T word is Touchdown
It's the return of this space shuttle Atlantis to Edwards Air Force Base in California. Here is a live picture of it coming in at ten thousand feet.
Three thousand feet...
ON APPROACH! And my excitement heightens!
Welcome home.....Atlantis crew.
Remember our fallen service men and women today. I am grateful for my father's service as an Army Sgt. who landed at Normandy on D-Day, and also fought at the Battle of the Bulge, earning two Purple Hearts. I remember my brother's Naval service aboard the USS Saratoga(CV-60) during the Bay of Pigs, and in the Mediterranean in the '60s. He wanted to visit "Sara" when she was decommissioned in the 90's but his cancer was to swift. Someday I would love to visit the carrier as a museum in RI.
I will be heading out to the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery for a reality check.
