Fifty Year Footprint

Posted by Dirck on 20 July, 2019

I bet you all thought I’d missed it yesterday. But no!

Well, sort of. IT was in a transitional state yesterday, and I was also concerned because I had hoped something would make contact here that would allow me an observation of the auspicious day in my own particular idiom… which as of yesterday’s post, had not appeared, leading to being somewhat downcast.

But then…

Is that an enormous launch vehicle in your pocket…?

Yes, I went and got a pen specific to the day. The same model as I was using yesterday, but definitely thematic to today. It’s got a limited edition number! It also cost… what I will be paid, eventually, for a story recently accepted. This is not a wise item of conduct, I admit, but some of the purchase is going into the coffers of the Astronaut Scholarships Foundation. This doesn’t particularly help hopeful young spacefarers of my own nation, and yet I’m content. A rising tide floats all interplanetary craft, right?


Anyway, happy anniversary to humanity stepping on a different sphere. I’m sure you’ve all had enough of me rambling when the real party is well underway. Go frolic in the vicarious achievement!

Today’s pen: Apollo 11 (after a fashion)
Today’s ink: Private Reserve Supershow Blue (because what more spectacular show than a trip to the moon?)
