Home Again…..

Standard

…..Heading Home…..  

After having a light breakfast (so nobody would get motion sickness) our intrepid travelers gathered outside the beautiful Stardust Hotel for one final look at the stars from the perspective of the Moon.  Everyone got a bit misty-eyed thinking the trip was coming to a close BUT everyone was also glad to be on their way back to the beautiful blue marble called Earth.

Everyone took in the scenery on the shuttle ride to the launch pad……..

On board Ralph everyone chatted and exchanged remembrances of their favorite moments on the Moon…….

DAYTHREEMOONTO EARTH2

Some napped – some played games – some compared souvenirs but everyone agreed it had been a great trip!

Getting closer to Earth was exciting………….

  4. What a great trip, S. The weightless room looks like a blast. If I were in the weightless room, Mom wouldn’t worry about me getting fat. Then I could have all the treats I want.

    Love and licks and welcome home,

    • Hi Cupcake! You are slim and trim as can be – just like a supermodel – I’m sure your Mom doesn’t think you’re getting fat….you look PURRRFECT to me!!! I agree that the weightless room would be fun though….I never did get in there – it was constantly “in use” on the trip home!

  6. Sammy that was a super trip! Many thanks to you and your mom for all the work and for a wonderful adventure. Sadly we forgot to look if the moon is really made from cheese…. hahahahaha I hope your dad welcomed you and your mom with a giant portion of bacon :o)

    Like

    • Hi Easy! Didn’t you notice at the awards banquet that there was green moon cheese on the buffet? Yep – sure was….but I hope you didn’t EAT any of it because it tasted so much like that cheesecake and I hear from those who took some that they wound up having “ISSUES” in their bathrooms all night. One thing you don’t want to do is have an upset tummy in SPACE!!!!!

      Thanks for coming with me Easy………it was GREAT!
      Hugs, Sam

      • aaah that’s the reason that my mom is in the bathroom since hours, I thought she would like a nice piece of cheesecake :o) Oh boy, imagine that… being a food-fountain in space would be awful (for you and your fellow travellers)

        Like

        • HAHAHAHA……a “food fountain” – sounds totally scary (and messy) doesn’t it?? HAHAHAHA……well they should have had a sign on that green cheese on the buffet line to beware of the green cheese – I think a lot of us smuggled some of that home and sadly your Mom made a cheesecake out of it….oh well….I’m just glad you didn’t eat any! ESPECIALLY in the “weightless room” on board Ralph…..now that would have been scary!

          Hugs, Sammy

  17. Oh Sammy! You and your Mom plan the BEST trips EVER! But I bet you are both all tuckered out now! I mean, I didn’t do *any* work and I know I’m ready for 16 naps or so. It was weird being back to all this gravity! I liked floating around. Well, my suit is going in my treasure chest, ready for my next adventure. Say, I wonder what Saturn is like…….. Thanks, Buddy! I had a great time!
