That sounds like the title of a children's book doesn't it?!
But no it was just another day in the life of me.
I was invited to Florida's 500th birthday party by VisitFlorida yesterday and we ate cake, drank tea and chatted with an astronaut from NASA in Camilla's Tea Room in Carnaby Street.... you know as ya do...
When I walked in I saw a man in a Blue jump suit... I thought 'Ahhhh look he's come in costume that is dedication!'... no that was his uniform.... his actual uniform, NASA badges and everything.
Captain Jon McBride is a retired Astronaut from NASA (the actual NASA, like the one that goes into Space and stuff) who now works for the The Kennedy Space Centre's Visitor Complex in Florida. What a lovely man he is and he has SO many stories. He is 1 in about 500 people on this earth who have been up into space! So I am so privileged to have sat and drunk tea with him... I'm all geekily excited by it!
He was there to explain about the Visitor Complex and what they offer though, not to HobNob with stars like me... *chuckles*
I had never even thought about the Kennedy Space Centre for one of the destinations in our trip to Florida later this year but how AWESOME would that be?
You can even have a gourmet lunch with an Astronaut whilst you're there!
Ohhhh I'm all excited! This is now on our 'Must Do' list and Jon has promised to come and meet us there and have lunch with us... because he's pretty cool like that!
Kyd is going to be OVER THE MOON! (excuse the pun).
Thanks Jon and Thanks VisitFlorida too!
