Bob and Doug: Space Cowboys

Posted on June 8, 2020

There’s good news in the midst of the crazy. The recent SpaceX historic rocket launch took me back to when I was a kid. Remember the Apollo space program? They made a movie about the bad one, but a dozen people on six different missions went to the moon about 50 years ago!

And thanks to Elon Musk, SpaceX was the first space mission ever performed by a private company! Next I’m looking for Chick-fil-A to send a ship up. (Not on Sunday.) Maybe they can recreate a cow jumping over the moon or something. I don’t know. Just brainstorming.

Finally, I love referring to the astronauts as “Bob and Doug.” The “Great White North” reference is easy, but so fun they’re spoken of like they’re your good friends. “Yeah, remember Bob and Doug? Last year they couldn’t keep their car running and today they’re orbiting the earth!”

I love this country!

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. Psalm 33:12
