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.

Um folks... one of the Tigers here at the Cincy Zoo tested positive for COV19 (and had symptoms), which was given to the tiger by one of it's trainers....
So stop sneaking into the zoo in the middle of the night to snuggle with the tigers, and you'll be fine.

Although, if you continue and something crazy happens, they'd be able to make an awesome documentary: Tiger Halfelf: Mayhem and Madness.
