I found more big, gorgeous acorns (with their caps) over at a new park. I started playing around with some stationery I have, to make bodies for them, and they turned out cutely...Emily likes them.
I think they have a sort of alien look to them, with their strange headgear...are they trying to "phone home" with that garb??? Could they be dreaming of getting back home on the next space shuttle???
Seriously, we might drive an hour to see the space shuttle launch...it is the last one to ever go up...tomorrow at 4:50pm from Kennedy Space Center! If we go, I will take these guys with me, and see if I can take their pic in front of the shuttle as it lifts off! You can check out NASA and launch info HERE.
I just found that there is a spacecraft scheduled for launch on Friday also...NASA's Glory spacecraft from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California is currently planned for no earlier than Friday, Feb. 25 at 5:09 a.m. EST. For info on this you can go HERE. The
coverage of the countdown on NASA TV will begin on launch day at 3:30 a.m. EST.
