It's all gotta go somewhere

Planet Earth is Blue

I think David Bowie (RIP) would be relieved to know that I found Major Tom. His space capsule landed on our house this Christmas.  On occasion I find him sitting in it; I imagine he’s reminiscing about his lonely hours spent floating out there, in another time.

We went and visited a lunar landing craft, to make him feel more at home on Earth again.

Perhaps it was his years in space that made him flexible and eager to try new things. Here he is, donning his space suit, ice skating for the very first time, albeit with an aid.


This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating
in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

The music world will never be the same without David Bowie, but look out Earth: Dashiell’s on his way.

    Oh my, that looks so real!!! Dash plays the part to the tee. I bet he gets lots of attention. That was a great place to take him! He could be their poster child.
