After arriving home from work last night and sticking the dinner in the oven to cook-I decided to spend a few minutes going through my emails,hubby was already languishing in the bath ! You can imagine my delight when I saw the words Nasa in my hotmail list !! Ned,Ned I screeched Nasa have replied to my letter-my fingers wouldn`t work quickly enough on the key pad I was that excited !
Now let me explain -I`ve run a competition on the blog asking people to send in their pictures wearing their supporters bands-we`ve called it traveling bands, sister-in -law Jayne suggested trying to get a band into space ! I must admit I was sceptical -o.k. I will give it a go-So I wrote the letter-I did ask that the band wasnt just discarded ,that if my request denied could I have a photo of an astronaut/ office worker or even a cleaner anybody wearing the band so I would at least know the band had got there[and was not wasted]
Hubby galloped down the hall way butt naked and soaking wet ! He stood behind me-NASA regret they cannot fly a "risk band " huh? that supports mnd into space [oh bugger !] only very few exceptions,such as for natural museums or historical purposes.NASA regrets that your request cannot be accommodated- sigh! they went to the trouble of writing back they could have sent a bloomin photo!- I went to check on the dinner-leaving hubby butt naked wearing only his specs thumping out a reply ! I smiled to myself as I followed the wet foot prints down the hall !! Sometimes its really nice having someone there just when you need them x
