If you had asked me when I woke up this morning if I would be writing about the Space Shuttle Endeavour on my gardening blog, I would have told you, “No way.”
But, that was this morning, before Endeavour made its way over my neighborhood. Yesterday I asked my daughter if she was interested in seeing the shuttle flying attached to the back of a “really big plane.” She was interested until I told her she would have to miss school. Upon that realization she replied, “No, I can just see it at the Museum (The California Science Center) later and be a lot closer to it.” That was all I needed. I wasn’t going to make it a big deal. I try not to get sucked into hype.
