We're in the midst of our March fund drive at AlamogordoLive.net. Working hard and praying to get the community support we need to keep going at a full run. Why? Well, because I have the best job in the world. Truly. This week, I received an Advanced Reading Copy of Michael McGarrity's upcoming book Hard Country which will be released Mary 10, 2012. The girls and I will be heading up to Santa Fe in April to interview Mr. McGarrity and will see him again in May when he visits Alamogordo to sign the book. I started reading last night - its excellent! Stay tuned for a book review coming soon.
In other news, this week I was honored to meet 2 astronauts, Sid Gutierrez and Dr. Harrison Schmitt, and retired NASA Flight Director Gene Kranz, the man who led mission control through the world's first moon landing with Apollo 11 and who was instrumental in saving the crew of Apollo 13. Mr. Kranz was inducted into the International Space Hall of Fame on Saturday, March 10, 2012 and Rachel and I were absolutely thrilled to meet him, spend time talking with him and get a few photos. Thank you Gene Kranz for your contributions to the American space program and for taking the time to chat with a couple of starstruck and very appreciative gals from AlamogordoLive.net.
I'm generally pulled in a million different directions and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Here's a glimpse of my life - hope you enjoy it! And if there's a big lapse between posts, well, that's the way life goes in Amy's world.
