.............good to see you back and we will like seeing some of the photo stash. My son and wish-to-be daughter-in-law are in Mexico presently vacationing. Silvia is from Mexico City so they go there more than a couple times a year to visit her family.

Yeah, those guppy days were interesting. I was so surprised to see the small size of the manned capsules the first time I visited Houston NASA, now those things were small. John Glenn surely had the E-coupon ride of the day in that little Mercury cap.

glad UR back,

Hi Gang:

Re the shuttle: Due to weather, it had to land in California for the return from orbit, so it was being transported back to Florida. On this mission it was a night launch a couple of weeks ago. We had a great view of the launch from our neighborhood. I walked over to the 13th fairway near my house to look at it. (It's got an unobstructed view tothe east; my house has too many trees in the back yard.)

With the night launchwe could follow it all the way to space. There is no other sight like it!!! Awe inspiringcomes to mind, and it's a sight that never grows old. Only a few years left before they are retired.

P.S. Good to have Ken back. We expect to see a lot of photos posted.
