Out of the Blue

Today is the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 13, the ill-fated moon mission disaster that was a "successful failure" after the safe return of astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise, and Jack Swigert following an explosion that crippled their spacecraft. I don't know how accurate the Ron Howard movie based on the incident is, but it's an incredible story that gives me chills every time I see it. I think I will mark the occasion by watching it again.

I sent an email to check in with an acquaintance who I haven't heard from in a couple years. I shared that a mutual friend was making masks and that I was well prepared with 96 tp rolls and 3 cans of soup.
This was the response
All is well here. If this continues for about another year, I will make a dent in the storehouse of food, water, propane, hoarded medicines and paper products that I have 'prepped' for the last 3 years.

All I have been studying for the last three years is unfolding nicely and we shall have a new world in another 2 years which barely resembles this one.

I am excited for the upgrade!
