A Historic Day

Hello hello! I hope everyone is having a splendid day, I know I am. I realized that something really cool happened in history today and thought (me being the nerd I am) that you guys might find it interesting: today the very first parking meter was installed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1935!!

Okay, just kidding. That did happen and is kind of cool but pales in comparison to what I’m actually excited to tell you about. Exactly 40 years ago today Apollo 11, the first manned mission to the moon, launched from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida!

Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve been intrigued by space and the unexplored beyond. Not to mention it’d be really fun to live with no gravity, can you imagine trying to eat Jell-O or something?

Who knows? Maybe one day we’ll see Nancy in space.

Nancy in Space??? Sounds like a great idea for future games. Would love to see her in my very own state of FL. Definitely not nerdy information as I was thinking along the same lines except about when they landed. =)

I've got to say, I'd be totally stoked about Nancy being in space. But I think for right now we'll keep both her feet on the good 'ole blue planet. Though Florida could be excellent, I'm thinking dark and scary swampland. Okefenokee anyone?

It would be so awesome if nancy came to Florida! There's even a book based there: The Mystery of the Moss-covered Mansion!:) P.S. where do you come up with all theese holidays? They're awsome!
