Moving on up and reaching the heavens

More legends leaving us.  America’s first female astronaut, Sally Ride, has passed away at age 61, from pancreatic cancer.  Sherman Hemsley aka “George Jefferson” age 74, natural causes.  I know I’m old when I know exactly who these people are and anyone more than a few years younger have no idea.  I’ll admit, as a kid, the first American woman in space didn’t really register with me, but the space program always caught my attention.  Next, I actually watched The Jeffersons.  Not on occasion, but all the time.  Didn’t think about its significance back in the day, I just knew it was hilarious.
