the june bug

With June rolling out to fly, tearing away the pencil scrawled month of May from the calendar on the wall, my thoughts just naturally drifted to flight and a postcard of the infamous Albany Flier, piloted by Glenn Curtiss 101 years ago, the first flight in the USA traveling one kilometer.

And Flight always reminds me of composer Michael Kamen's lifting end theme to From The Earth To The Moon.
Close your eyes and just soar:

My husband's grandfather's pilots license was signed by Orville Wright. What a time in history! Thanks for posting this card.

As I closed my eyes and "soared" with the music, I thought of how happy you've made many people with this particular post. I for one loved it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
