Rocket Boys

If you read Homer Hickam's memoir or saw the movie "October Sky", you know what a rocket boy is. My dad was, or I should say, is, a rocket boy. Throughout his youth he and a group of buddies were fascinated by rockets and space. As any mother could guess, many shenanigans ensued.

My son just got his first rocket this week. It is all assembled, gleaming white with red racing strips and waiting on his dresser for the big lift off.

My dad is still letting off rockets. He is an aerospace engineer. I wonder if my son will follow in his path.

I just finished and posted this ring today. I have several special orders that I am also trying feverishly to complete. I really hope I can get all caught up this week.

And then there's the laundry. . .
