Kind of a Big Deal

On the Porch

The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon launch and landing is kind of a big deal in my hometown and all across the Space Coast complete with street parties and an old fashioned Astronaut parade in Cocoa Beach.

We are in North Carolina and missing out on the activities but our daughter, an ardent fan of space exploration has been enjoying the activities. Saturday she attended the parade complete with astronauts riding in vintage Corvettes!

One of our downtown businesses, Hotpoint Boutique commissioned an artist to design a unique print that celebrates the 50th anniversary. The design is sold on tee-shirts and a fluffy blanket as well as the 11×14 print.

If you enjoy historical fiction based around the race for the moon, my daughter is running a giveaway of this print in 11×14 size and a signed copy of her award winning novel, Undaunted. (Previously titled Jessie)

Entry is very easy!


For my friend outside of the US, she can substitute digital copies of Undaunted and Destiny’s Call, books one and two of her Jessie Cole Series. Unfortunately she cannot include the print.

My daughter wrote an entire blog about the activities on her website, Rebekah Lyn Books including some photos of her dad, my husband at his job as a mechanic on the shuttle fleet.

    I am so glad Bill is enjoying the events. I can understand why it was like a field trip!

    I love her enthusiasm about the space program, and everybody else’s too. Bill went to another do yesterday it was like a field trip in that they kept scrupulous count of everyone who was there.
