The Tazewell County Museum unveiled a bust of Altman Sunday afternoon. Altman flew four space shuttle missions, logging more than 51 days in space, and was commander of the final two Hubble Space missions before leaving NASA in 2010. The bust was created by artist Morgan Elser from Delavan IL. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Altman’s mother at the cookie exchange I went to last December. She is a lovely, gracious lady.
It is still a pretty dreary day at 34 degrees right now. I am having difficulty getting used to the new time and I think some of the iPhones are too. I read in the paper where some of the phones changed the time back an hour instead of forward an hour and people were late getting to church, etc. I do hate the time change. I say leave it one way or the other.
The Spring Countdown stands right this minute at 6 days, 9 hours, 17 minutes and 24 seconds.
I hope you all are having a good start to the week. Stay safe and be happy.
