Moonwalk With Sammy

Standard

Hi Everybody!    I can’t believe how excited some of you are about the Moon trip – to the point where I’m getting lotsa email with questions and I figure I just can’t keep saying “soon” to at least give you some more “substantial” information about our trip.  TODAY IS THE DAY!

First of all, yesterday I gave you the dates for the trip BUT if you didn’t record them, get your calendars out because here’s when we’ll be going.

 LAUNCH DATE:  Thursday, February 27

RETURN FROM THE MOON: 

Saturday, March 1

MOON-Rocket1

To prepare for this pawsome event, you will need to begin thinking about the following things and deadlines!

  1. Preparing your spacesuit!  IThe “template” spacesuit is at the bottom of this blog and you can either use it, OR, if you want to find your OWN spacesuit to decorate and personalize that’s fine too!  The space cadet with the coolest/neatest/cleverest decorated suit is going to win a PRIZE!    YOU CAN EMAIL ME YOUR FINISHED PHOTO (in .jpg or .jpeg format) NOT LATER THAN SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23.  We’ll have a poll for your favorite on February 25th and I’ll announce the WINNER at a big party we’ll have at the Lunar Hotel the night of February 28th !!  WOO HOO
  2. Prepare an entry for the “WEIRDEST MOON CREATURE” contest!   Yep – be creative and let me know what kind of creature you imagine lives up on the Moon that we might run into when we visit!   Scary, weird, downright insane – whatever your little imagination thinks a Moon Creature would look like.    If you enter THIS contest you need to have your picture/artwork/creation to me NOT LATER THAN  SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23.  We’ll also have a poll for your favorite creature for this contest on February 25th and the WINNER will be announced at our Lunar Hotel on the 28th at the pawty!!
  3. Decorate your Lunar Hotel Room contest!  I’m going to be posting below a picture of the “generic” hotel room from our Lunar Hotel where you’ll have your own private room with bath of course where you’ll sleep the night of February 27th and 28th before we come home.   You can add all the comforts of home to your room if you like – and if we think you have the coziest or most interesting room you might win this contest and get a prize!  Again, if you want to enter this one, you need to send me the room fully decorated in .jpg or .jpeg format NOT LATER THAN SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23rd.  We’ll ALSO vote for the best decorated room on February 25th!

SO – how’s that for a lot of information????!!!

THREE CONTESTS WITH PRIZES:   (1) Best decorated spacesuit……….(2) decorate your hotel room on the Moon…………(3) coolest Moon creature !      You can enter one, two, three or NONE of the contests – it’s up to you!

ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED BY ME NO LATER THAN SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23 – voting will be TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25th.    YOU CAN BEGIN SENDING THEM ANY TIME STARTING TODAY  – I’m READY!!!

ENTRIES SHOULD BE SENT TO ME AT junekimm@aol.com   – AS ATTACHMENTS TO YOUR EMAIL in .jpg or .jpeg format please !   SUBJECT LINE SHOULD READ:  MOON TRIP      If I can’t download your entries I’ll email you immediately so you can re-send.

One other impawtant note………..I’ve been asked if humans may come along on the trip……….We will be able to offer accommodation to only FIVE humans at a max on this trip SO, if your human wants to come along OR if you are a human without a pet that’s coming along (!!!), you need to notify me ASAP at my email address – the first five will get to accompany us (and yes they can also enter all the contests!!).

ARE YOU EXCITED?????  GOT QUESTIONS????

Ask questions in comments and I’ll answer them. 

HOW COOL IS THIS?  Woo Hoo

Here is the “template” for the spacesuit contest (or you may use your own spacesuit but I MUST have your face showing!)

MOON-Spacesuit

Here is the “template” for the hotel room decorating contest (this is the room you must decorate if you’re entering this contest!!)

MOONHOTEL1

I’ll be reminding you of ALL OF THESE things several times over the next week or so…..including deadlines.  Please remember that if you are going on this trip you MUST have a spacesuit to wear for part of the journey – even if you don’t DECORATE one and don’t enter that contest, you need to send me a photo of you in a spacesuit.  I also need a photo of you that I can use for the party we’re having at the lunar hotel….you don’t need to be in costume or formal clothes – just any photo will do !!   

GOT IT?  It’s a lot I know…….but boy are we gonna have a BLAST (and I’m not just talking about the moon launch)

NOW – GET TO WORK!

  2. I feel sorry in advance for the white bedding ot the hotel room :o) But maybe they have a doormat where we can remove the intergalactical dust from our paws. I think 3 days without my staff are great, so they have to stay on slice earth while I viit the moon :o)

    • I wondered about that white bedding BUTTTT, I discovered a DARK colored blanket in a drawer in the “test room” I was shown so I think we’ll all be safe! Almost everyone is happy to leave their humans behind Easy – besides, your Dad will still be growing his finger back and should NOT be traveling!

      Hugs, Sammy

    • Nylablue I think it’s probably a good idea because we wouldn’t want you to get super sick so far away from home……I promise to bring you back a souvenir!! If you decide to come up for the Lunar Hotel PAWTY, then that will be enough pawtying for you I think. Then you can go home and be cozy again.

      Hugs, Sammy

  6. Hmmmm, maybe this has something to do with why Mom is always telling Lightning “to the moon, Lightning, to the moon”.

    Sounds like a lot of fun.

  7. OMC, Sammy! That is a lot. Mom says she may have to stock up on chocolate and Diet Coke to get through this challenge of decorating suits and rooms and finding moon creatures. I think some of my sisfurs may double up on rooms to save her some time and energy. She says that as much as she would like to accompany us, she’ll need the time we are away to rest up for whatever comes up next. And Sammy, please tell Denmaster of your plans. The last thing we need is for her to throw another Quest at us just as we are getting ready to blast off. Mau says he will see you tomorrow (it could be today by now) at Nick’s memorial service. Have a great weekend. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • Hi Kitties! With that crew of yours, I should think a room at the lunar hotel with bunk beds would be practical!!! HAHAHA Remember too that you don’t have to enter ALL the competitions (so your Mom doesn’t get worn out!!!) – but you DO have to be in a spacesuit for sure – decorated or not!! Also, don’t forget to send me a “plain” photo of everyone going that we can use for the awards banquet photos. I do hope we aren’t stuck in a Quest at the time we’re planning the Moon trip! I’m afraid I’d have to be an official “deserter” at Scouts for the sake of a moon trip!!!!!

      Hugs, Sammy
      p.s. I’ll be at Nick’s memorial no matter what!

  9. Addycat thinks the trip looks like so much fun, but she told me she’s nervous and doesn’t know if she should go or not. She’s new to the bloggie world and doesn’t know many of you…

      • Hi Sammy it’s Addycat. I really do want to go and make lots of furiends! I’m a little scared, I’ve never gone on a trip without my Meowmie before… and my Meowmie isn’t very good at doing the decoratey stuff with the computer. She says I can go if she can figure out how to get a moonsuit ready for me. Do you have any tips for my Meowmie?
        Also will there be lots of crunchy noms there or should I bring my own? When I’m nervous I snack on my crunchy noms. Meowmie says it’s a comfort thing… whatefur that means! Also Sammy you are so furry nice for helping me decide to go with efurrybody and make new furiends! It will be good to get away from that new barky thing that Meowmies human daughter brought to MY home, for a couple days too!!!

        • Hi Addycat! I’m sure you’re a bit scared of being around cats you don’t know well, BUT I promise you that all my friends are SUPER and friendly and we’ll all pitch in to make sure you have a fun time on the Moon Trip. My Mom is going to put you in a spacesuit (and email your Mom with it) but we don’t want to actually decorate it for you because that would be a personal thing and personal choice for you!!! My Mom uses Pizap (it’s an online site where you can “play” with your own photos) for all of her fun photo things you see on my blog. If you want to try it, it’s free, you don’t download ANYTHING – you work with it online and you can edit your photo my Mom will send you by putting cute decorations and stickers on it to make it fancy if you wish. On the other hand you don’t HAVE to decorate it – but if you’re coming on my trip you need to have a spacesuit so what my Mom sends to you will work just fine! How’s that? You just let me know if you want to be included and we’ll take it from there……if your Mom decides to TRY Pizap and figures out how to decorate your suit, just send it to me and I’ll use it for our blog Moon Trip instead of the plain one.

          Hope the barky thing goes away….I do NOT like barkies…..they scare me too!!

          Hugs, Sammy

      • Hi Sam, Mom sewed some official patches on my uniform so it looks like I really work at NASA. She even made a special name tag for me that’s just like a real astronaut. It’s cool! She “sews” with an iPad app called “Juxtaposr”. She says it’s a million times easier than Photoshop. If others would like an official name tag, she would be happy to make it for them =^..^=
