and flying directly over Centerpointe.
Yes, I took this pic while standing on Arlington Pointe,
without a telephoto lens.
What a surprise we got. And that lack of foreknowledge made the surprise all the more special.

The Mundane and the Magnificent:
Endeavour stands in wild contrast
to the typical scattering of trash cans.
Anyway, it was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I'm so glad that I was right here to see it. Houston may not have gotten a shuttle, but we sure got a "thank you" yesterday.
