Today Nancy took us to the Space Center in Huntsville, Alabama.  This is one of the Space Shuttles.  It is setting on its two solid rocket boosters and large external fuel tank.  This would be standing up right when launched and the stuff would be dumped into the ocean when used up.


This is the Space Pod that the kids go in when they go to space camp.  The schools have a program where the kids go to camp for one week and learn all about space.  What a wonderful experience.

This is the SR 71Black Bird.  Originally used by the CIA for spying on Russia.   It holds the speed and altitude records for maned aircraft.  Not including the space shuttle.
Big tall rocket.


Nancy took us to the Veteran's Home to drop off one of the lap blankets I knit.  I want to leave one in a nursing home in each state we travel in.  So now Alabama has a little heart on my map signifying blanket left here.  I was told they were giving it to a young man, but they can not give out names.  I hope it gives hime comfort and warmth.

This is Richard and Nancy's home.  We have had a great time staying here.  Their son and family came over for dinner and we had a wonderful time and a great meal.
