Rocket Man

Today when I was introduced to Mr. Chapman's 5th grade class, I received applause even before I began speaking. I felt like a Nobel laureate rather than the guy who comes to tell the class about rockets each year. We had a great time with lots of questions and comments. In a couple of weeks we will launch the rockets they build.

Later in the day I received my state income tax refund of $23.

It is amazing how small victories can really boost the mood.
