Our Day off Yesterday, No Politics, No News Talk, Nothing but Relaxation.

So, we decided yesterday that we needed a break from all the crap that is going on. A break from the destruction of our constitution, first through a shredder, then right into the fire pit. A break from FAUX News channel, a break from internet access, a break from all things political. We just needed to unplug.

Our day off took us on a fairly short trip to the Kennedy Space Center on the East coast of Florida. We left the house about noon and headed East and had a great drive. Really, we had no idea what to expect when we got there but were very excited about seeing the shuttle go up, from about 15 miles out. What an amazing place. We ended up at Space view Park, which as stated earlier, is about 15 miles due west of the launch site.

This park is amazing. The park is a major tribute or memorial to all the past and future astronauts.

This last picture is at the end of the Astronauts Walk of Fame in the park. The clouds were coming in, just about an hour or so before the shuttle was to launch and I turned around where this monument was, right directly behind me, and Saw this, what I thought, looked like an amazing image. The sky appeared to be opening up, right above the monument, into the heavens, almost as an invitation from God to the Space Program. What an unbelievable site, or view. These picture really don't do the experience any justice. You MUST experience it if you get to Florida.

What a fantastic way to unplug...A day off, with my gorgeous, kind, giving, loving, generous wife. I truly LOVE life.

In God I Trust
Have a Great Day and a Better Tomorrow
