Old Friends and Old Times . . .

Jan and I are really looking forward to tomorrow’s get-together at MomAlone’s Mexican Grill up in Webster.

It’s a reunion of the employees of Taft Broadcasting, the NASA contractor I worked for here at Johnson Space Center from 1978 thru 1987. Then after that I worked for Technicolor and Krug Life Sciences there too.

Probably the highlight of all my time with Taft was being part of the crew out at White Sands when STS-3, the 3rd flight of the Shuttle Columbia, landed there on March 30, 1982, due to to heavy rains at the California landing site.

I still have my mission patch that we all received.

Really looking forward to seeing all the guys again.
