If you’ve been watching the news you probably know that today was the day when the Space shutter Endeavor made her last flight.
Hubby called, from work, to remind me that she would be doing a fly-by over the magic kingdom, but sadly I forgot, until I pulled onto Magic Way and landed in the middle of a traffic jam. I couldn’t get to Down Town Disney for anything and then it dawned on me. “Oh yeah, today is the day that the space shuttle was doing her fly-by.
People were pulling into the huge Disney parking structure to watch from the roof top. Me? I pulled around the corner into a parking lot of a near-by hotel. There sat a woman on the tail gate of her truck and a man in a lawn chair with a cooler. I asked if they were there to watch the shuttle. “Yep.” They had the same thing in mind. The woman told me to pull up a seat next to her so I did and the three of us talked for about an hour.
The sun was blazing hot and people were starting to leave just as we heard the turbine engines of the 747 that carried her to her final destination.
Was it an exciting moment in the life of this 50 year old woman? You bet it was!!!
Did you get to see her final flight and where were you when she flew by?
