Apollo +6

The Martians have landed.

Of course Apollo 6 was the last unmanned flight and was the final mission to test the rocket before 3 poor blokes got sent up. I discovered today that the real Apollo 6 launch didn't receive the press coverage of the other Apollo missions as it launched the same day that Martin Luther King Jr. was shot. Hope nothing similar happens today!

Mike is obviously on the way down, which is to be expected. Funnily enough he seems to look more tanned each time I visit, I reckon there must be secret sun lamps in the showers, or as in Roobeedoo's post, spray tan booths.

He almost looks THIS tanned.
I have so say I think this is the strangest New Year's Eve I have ever known. Poor Mike will on the anti-sickness rather than champagne as the clock strikes 12, not the best way to see in a New Year. I can only hope for a better 2011 for us all dear readers.


  1. You can do it Mike! The first few days were the hardest. It wasn't until about day +8 that I had enough energy to hold my head up off the pillow. It really does get better. I'm at day +15 today and actually made myself lunch today. Not much, but at least the appetite is coming back. Some days will be better than others, but the worst of if should be behind you soon.

  2. Well you did say you were going on holiday! Club Tropicana I presume? That explains all those ice-lollies too! Keep your chin up Lorna - you're doing great work as chief cheerleader!
