at the Moon
In a very real sense,
it will not be one man
going to the moon
it will be an entire nation.
For all of us
must work to put him there.
~ John F. Kennedy
I grew up in the years we humans first quested for the moon. It was an exciting time. On launch days the entire school would go to the gym where a black and white TV was set up for us to watch. The whole country gathered around TVs. It was fun to be a part of such a huge co-gathering.
Considering the Howling at the Moon thing, I guess it’s no coincidence that today is also Frankenstein Day. Remember Frankenstein was the name of the scientist. The monster was just called, the monster.
Additionally, on this day we celebrate (or not) the Pumpkin, the Mule, Breadsticks and Bandannas. And over on a month full of Smiley Silliness we celebrate Designated Driver Day. Certainly an odd assortment.
Today is the birthday of Hillary Clinton (1947), Jaclyn Smith (also 1947), Pat Sajak (also 1947), and Olivia Newton John (1948). A dinner party with the 4 of them would certainly be interesting.
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here on the website’s Daily Smiley.
Plus, as is often the case, the Moon Smiley you get in the Smiley-a-Day emailer is different from what you see here.
