Cool - thanx! :D
A most mysterious calling harbour
So far, but yet, so near
Where I see the day
When my hair's full gray
and I finally...disappear. BUT NOT YET!!

How I would love to drive the shuttle
Just to feel the engines roar
And to operate the levers
That control the payload doors
I could buzz the Himalayas
Barrel roll above Hong Kong
Set her down in San Francisco
To the clanging of the gong

We lost our Martian rocket ship
The high paid spokesman said
Looks like that silly rocket ship
Has lost it's cone-shaped head

We spent ninety jillion dollars
Tryin' to get a look at Mars
I hear universal laughter
Ringing out among the stars

Rumor has it that JB has made an offer to NASA to buy the Atlantis shuttle following this final mission..... :o

Should look good hanging in one of his future Margaritaville restaurants, right???? :wink: :pirate:

Here's praying for a successful flight and safe return to Earth of Atlantis and crew..... [smilie=coolup.gif]

Brian What's-His-Name from NBC Nightly News announced tonight that he performed there. Dying to know what he sang.

Oh so it did launch. I must've missed it. I thought for sure it was too wet out.

Sounds fun on paper but most likely he'd find some way to crash it or maybe get shot at.
