In honor of the coming landing of the last American space shuttle, and our capitulation in matters of space exploration supremacy, I present to you an image of the launch of STS-42 (42nd space shuttle mission).

Hope a new era dawns in my lifetime.

I had an appointment to look at a townhouse for rent. The owner never showed up so I wandered the complex until I found this. Too bad this wasn't the unit for rent.

Many years ago, we stayed in a literary themed hotel in Oregon during one stop on our honeymoon.  We stayed in the Mark Twain room.  I just looked up the place up to see if they added a Hitchhikers or DNA room since then, but unfortunately they have not.  That would be neat, and obviously it would have to be room #42.  I do see they have added a Rowling themed room.   http://www.sylviabeachhotel.com/

When we picked our room I had a tough time choosing.  Tolkien lost out in part because the Twain room is a better room (though more expensive), but I must also admit that Twain probably edges out Tolkien on my top 10 authors list.  I don't remember if the Seuss room was one of the options at the time, but I don't think I would have considered it anyway.  My appreciation of Seuss grew a little later (after kids came along).

I'd have to take Tolkien. I'm afraid I couldn't resist even if it were the worst room in the place.  :) Then I'd sit and read "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil," "Farmer Giles of Ham," and "The Hobbit" all night.  ...Which explains why my family hasn't booked a stay at such a place. I drive them crazy enough as it is.  ::)

Okay Teatime, when our families are both fed up with us (or us with them) we'll run off on vacation together, call it a 'Writer retreat' and go stay there.

There is also this place featured in the NY Times today:

but it is a bit pricier and there is only the one hobbit hole...

Yes, I suppose we were getting a little bit off topic.

Incidentally, the above sentence has 42 letters.

We took my grandnephew to a carousel for his first birthday and I saw this sign.
