This post will be a lengthy one because I have a lot to recount here about my day, and word count or attention span for this event isn’t a factor.  Those are irrelevant by comparison. Continue reading

I wanted to sneak in  here and get some bandwidth while I can over here to post a brief memorial for Neil Armstrong.  I saw notice of his death in the news.  This post, by necessity scheduled for later, will be late coming but no less heartfelt.

I for one mourn the loss of this American.  I don’t have to regurgitate his biography; you all can do that yourselves, and honestly you ought to.  I believe that someday, history will continue to mark July 20th, 1969 as a pivotal moment in the history not of the United States, but rather all of humanity.  Mr. Armstrong was the first in what will become a long line of humans to walk on other worlds.

Longtime followers may recall a half-inebriated post or two of mine last year detailing my application – even at my age – to the Army Astronaut Program.  All of the snark aside, I was entirely serious and willing to become an astronaut.  In truth, I have since I was about four years old.  In spite of the obstacles, I still would.

Men such as Neil Armstrong were and are the inspiration to me and many others.  We should remember them well.

I really wish I were wealthy, so that I could pay someone to follow me and slap me across the face violently to bring me back to my senses when necessary. Then again, …more update…
