Hi, in Florida. Managed a thousand words this morning but now off to sign in at Kennedy Space center for the launch. Special passes. Will see night viewing, tonight. Will write another 1,000 words, somehow.
Top photo: of Don and Micki Pettit greeting friends and family while astros and one partner at safe distance due to quarantine. Don having to explain to their sons why the boys have to stay back with the crowd. He is pointing to where he will be getting a ride tomorrow.
Bottom photo: NASA provided bus rides to take us to a field where we were warned to watch for ants and snakes. There it was, lit up and unveiled.
