Ohhhh Fuuudge!

Peter Billingsley challenger

Classmates of the son of America’s first teacher-astronaut, Christa McAuliffe, cheer as the space shuttle Challenger lifts skyward from Launch Pad 39B on January 28, 1986.  Their delight turned to horror as the shuttle exploded 73 seconds into flight.  The boy in the white hat and glasses at center is Peter Billingsley, the star of A Christmas Story and a spokesman for the young astronaut program

here is video of Peter and others in the crowd watching liftoff  :(

Billingsley said after the tragedy – ‘I’ve talked to kids from all over, even some not too long after the accident.  They seem more interested in the future. I don`t think it`s going to set the program back in the long run. They seem to be looking beyond it.

Kids are not going to be terribly disturbed in the long run. They might think twice, but most kids have a dream of going into space

wonder if they have an AM radio station called 1010 Wiens.  anywho, Wien is in Austria, which shouldn’t be confused with Australia

Auf Wiedersehen Europe. until we Wiedërsehen again!!!

now Wien doesn’t have Eastern European charm like Hungary and Czech Repub do, but Austria never had to deal with all that standing in line for bread and sharing stuff.  it remained a cosmopolitan place, for centuries, and remains so

vienna street

where they have palatial palaces!!!

belvedere

with selfie points – how modern!

but everything we did wasn’t juss fatrsy artsy culture stuff

of course we hit up grocery stores to see what was a brewin’

tiroler alm

although we actually did try this – Almdudler –  which is basically Austrian ginger ale – and once bitten, forever smitten

almdudler

and apparently gefilte aint just for fishes.  it’s a thing, but I guess they go with the less Jewish ‘gefüllte’ which translates to ‘stuffed’.  but however it’s spelled, I’m g’scared of anything gefilted/gefüllted

gefullte

then it was off to check out the famous Naschmarkt 

where there’s kraut by the barrel!!!

sauerkraut

oh, you think we forgot to go to McDonalds, and McLook at their McMenü?
