Have a great weekend folks, what’s left of it.

Space Shuttle Discovery landed today, ending her final space mission and making her the most traveled human transport in history.

39 missions – 148,221,675 miles. SALUTE!

Space shuttle Discovery lifts off from Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla., Thursday, Feb. 24, 2011. The crew of six astronauts are on an 11-day mission to the international space station. / Wilfredo Lee / Associated Press

What a great program with so many achievements. Sad to see it end. I’ve followed it from the very beginning. When I grew up in Houston, I’d pretend to be doing reports for school and write or call NASA for pictures and whatever they would send on Apollo and the Shuttle and space flight in general. Wish I still had those old photos and artist renditions of the shuttle and various spacecraft they sent me.

Let’s all drink a toast to Discovery and the fine folks of NASA.

Most of us out here still love you guys.

Cheers!

Blogging friends send the nicest emails.

Take this one for example. Carol of No Sheeples Here, sent in a cartoon I’m sure she thought was funny.

Hardee-har-har-haarrr, Carol.

I refuse to laugh at this. No matter how hilariously funny it is funny you think it is.

No matter how distraught the woman looks at being deprived of her Robo-Love.

W H A T ! ?

If I were she, I’d be on the phone to the repair shop post haste. No time to waste!

And doesn’t the poor robot in this portrait have that “deer in the headlights” look? Like, “This has never happened before. I promise.”

Is there Viagra in C3P0’s future? Only George Lucas, Isaac Asimov or Phillip K. Dick know for sure.

NASA surely doesn’t. It’s got sand in it’s gears at the moment.


Does bring to mind some old James Brown though…

In honor of NASA’s new mission, someone suggested

Magic Carpet Ride – Steppenwolf

Last night I held Aladdin’s lamp
And so I wished that I could stay
Before the thing could answer me
Well, someone came and took the lamp away
I looked around, a lousy candle’s all I found

Well, you don’t know what we can find
Why don’t you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride
Well, you don’t know what we can see
Why don’t you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
Close your eyes girl
Look inside girl
Let the sound take you away
And you expected… what? lol
Hey, you might want to rinse that off. You’ve got ridiculous all over you.
