How funny... I saw the same alert....

....but had just climbed into bed. Thought about it, then said, Naw.... I kinda got over the thrill a long long time ago, in a land far far away. Well, Oceano Ca. to be exact. As a kid, I use to watch these launches out of Vandenberg on a pretty regular basis from the huge window of the gas station my dad owned. Remember the old school look of gas stations? When the entire office was 2 large walls of glass? Ah, the memories.... I hated that place! Everyday after school... "be sure and get straight to work at the station". While my friends were at the park or the beach. At the time, I didn't really know how good I had it. Sometimes I can still hear the damn 'ding-ding'.... but I digress....

So yeah, when I saw that alert... I remembered the countless launches I'd witnessed.... and went to sleep. smiling smiley

  If I recall...Wasn't Vandenberg SUPPOSED to be a Space Shuttle launch site also?
