Peek-a-boo

I'm neither ugly nor watched by fools
But my salty attitude could get under your skin
& I could sound a bit crazy
Especially while moving
Get off my lawn


Mmm

Well dip me in heaven
& turn me upside down!
Then you can call me nice.

The Eagle has soared

The word "hero" can mean many things, depending on who you ask. Neil Armstrong was a hero to many. A pilot, a Navy officer, an engineer, a test pilot, an astronaut. The first man to set foot and walk on the Earth's moon. A good man. To me, he was also a fellow Boilermaker and band alum.

My parents were still in school when Apollo 11 landed on the moon. I remember them both telling me about it when I was younger. It was one of those defining moments of history that anyone who experienced remembers where they were and what they were doing.

As a graduate of Purdue, I have always been proud that Neil was a fellow alumnus. He was gracious enough throughout his life to continue his association with and support of the university. I had the privilege of meeting him once, when he was on campus for a Homecoming weekend. He came to watch Friday afternoon marching band practice. That's something I'll be telling my own kids and grandkids one day.

Thank you, Neil, for your service and bravery. Godspeed. May you soar among the heavens, in peace.

On the Spurs' court road long ago
a wave of beverage it did flow
where parliament lived Eight had died
An Act of God so they surmised



Note: This really is an esoteric bit of trivia.
