Max on.... the Last Launch


I have leaky eyes today, pals... The last of the shuttle launches is scheduled for today at 11:26 AM EDT. I'm wearing my space suit until the launch, just in case they need me as an alternate. I'm also wearing it out of respect for all those hard working people at Cape Canaveral. I'm gonna miss the excitement of the launches, that's for sure.

So, they are predicting rain, but we're still hoping the launch will go off as scheduled. I'll keep you up to date on that on Twitter. Everybody have a great day and send strong purrs to the space program.

It is most certainly a historic day. Mom said in her lifetime she remembers the first launch, the first walk on the moon and now the last launch.....she is older than dirt too!!
Happy Weekend,

Mom had leaky eyes when she watched the shuttle launch this morning. She also had leaky eyes when she watched the close out crew on the NASA channel. They had some touching signs to say goodbye to the program.
