Thankful Thursday -- Thankful for Atlantis


Just heard the boomies. Atlantis has returned. We're thankful today that they have returned safely.

I've donned my space suit for the last time. We will miss the space program. We have wonderful memories of all the shuttle launches and landings. Congratulations to all the brave men and women who have gone into space and worked on the program.

Max here, saluting all of you..... Job Well Done!!!

Simba said...

Well put, Max. Job Well Done! We are very glad there were no mishaps on this last shuttle flight.

Mom has grown up with the space program - she remembers the first sputnik, stood out in the cold nights with her parents watching satellites, followed the Apollo flights with great interest, was glued to the tv for the first moon landing, and is so proud of all the astronauts and workers who have made the shuttle program possible. It is a very poignant time.

The return of Atlantis is bittersweet. We're so happy they came back safe, but sad that this is the last time.

The Zoolatry Girls said...

Aaaahh, yes. A sad yet memorable time; it was all so uplifting (and serious no pun is intended)... it did lift up the spirits, hopes, dreams.

We are very sad to see the Shuttle program end, too. Thanks for putting a smile on our faces with your space suit though, Max. :)
