  1. I love everything space, Jacqui. Used to dream of becoming an astronaut. My father was born on July 20th. My Dancing on the Moon blog (7/19) post imagined a playlist to bring to the moon. I’m also a teacher. Happy Moon Day/

    1. I am off to check out your playlist. I never considered that! Me, I’d like to join Elon Musk’s trip to Mars. Wouldn’t that be amazing?
