Geno Cernan. Just got a text from my son, waking me up - had to come online to confirm, and sadly, no mistake - another hero, just..gone.

Absolutely gutted. Captain Cernan was/is one of my very favorites. Brave, insanely intelligent, and known for his candor and delightfully foul mouth, he was one of a kind. Second American to walk in space - Apollo 10, and it was a terrifying attempt; he lost thirteen pounds in the short time he was out there -- and last human to set foot on the lunar surface.

SO glad this was made - it's wonderful: http://www.space.com/32079-five-surprises-last-man-on-moon.html

THAT SMILE - take a minute, it's worth it.



Godspeed, Captain Cernan, you will be sorely missed.

England was even more wonderful than I imagined. I know, now, as I've always known, that my heart is there, and now - it is The Quest.




What a year for me! Both dreams and nightmares, coming true. Not mentioned, above - my first tattoo. For Frankie, of course - and I *swear* I made a post about the passing of John Glenn, but it's not showing up. Last of the Mercury Boys, and the end of an era.

Better days, a'comin' - have to be! Love you all ♥

I just have to say that I *love* hearing about everyone's Cureshow adventures! Was able to follow a little on periscope thru the fb group, last night, with Gaya - so we can say we saw two shows together! LOL. Technology.

Happy Fourth :)

Listening to the nightmusic of passing trains, crickets, and the occasional straggling firework, here:

So lovely and peaceful; I check in on Andy, from time to time. Never a shortage of soup cans. I had NO idea you could do this: http://www.earthcam.com/usa/pennsylvania/pittsburgh/warhol/?content=sendgift His birthday is coming up on August 6, so I just might..


This, however, made my whole week. THIS is what the internet is FOR, IMO. It was new to me, and absolutely delightful; hearing his laughter was like finding diamonds in the bottom of a soggy bowl of cornflakes.

And saw FIREWORKS! FROM (as close as I could get to) NEIL ARMSTRONG'S HOME TOWN!!!
