Before I get to my question, let me tell you about my weekend. It was a great one. We had an outstanding day at the market. There was a great crowd all day and no odd people sightings. It was never totally packed but it was steady and so were the sales. I can’t complain at all. I actually have nothing to complain about at all except maybe some sore muscles but they aren’t that bad.
Sunday I fixed a nice dinner consisting of Shrimp Gumbo with hot Peach Cobbler for desert. I grew the okra and tomatoes myself and I used fresh local peaches in the cobbler. The only thing missing was some vanilla ice cream. Because of our hectic schedule we don’t always get to sit down to eat as a family but we try to do that every Sunday.
With all the things going on in our world these days, it is becoming increasingly evident that we can’t believe everything that we see, hear or read. And that makes me wonder about certain things. The government, backed by the media tells us what they want us to hear. I have heard countless stories that were reported as true only to be labeled as false at a later date.
This past weekend marked the 40th anniversary of landing a man on the moon. I remember watching it on our Zenith TV. It was one of those huge models that sat on the floor and it was always breaking down. For the longest time, I thought the TV repairman lived at our house. I don’t think a week went by that he wasn’t there replacing tubes. Technology just wasn’t that great back then. There were no microchips or modern computers as we know it today. There were only tubes and magamps. So the fact that we were able to make a spacecraft that would travel to the moon and return is truly amazing. Too amazing!
So do you think we really did it? I mean with all the advances that we have in technology these days, we have trouble getting the space shuttle to lift off on time. Somehow way back then, using primitive technology we were able to do something that gives us trouble now. This morning there is a report that the toilet is clogged on the space shuttle. Hmmm something sounds fishy. I didn’t say smells I said sounds.
My theory is that it never happened. I think the government staged the entire thing just so we could say we were leading the space program. And I am not alone in this thinking. Lots of people believe as I do. Now they are talking about taking a photo from the space shuttle of the flag on the moon to “prove” that we really did it. Well if they can put on an entire show, from the surface of the moon they can surely come up with some fake photos. So what do you think? Did it happen?
Have a great day,
