I was eagerly watching the entire President Obama (wild cheering) inaugural parade yesterday because my husband's brother-in-law, Don Pettit, was one of the astronauts marching on this most amazing day. It turns out the crew from the latest shuttle mission was at the very rear of the parade and the cameras cut away to an ad just as the nose of the new lunar rover appeared. "NOOOOooooo" went a collective moan from our couch. How could CNN so disrespect our need to see NASA's ace crew wag the end of the parade?
Otherwise, a very fine day of watching history unfold as I built a book catalog for Marsh Hawk Press and daughter Natalie draped herself on various surfaces and dozed on and off getting over a flu-like-thing.
