Jim Lovell's Autograph

At some point when I was in high school, my mother went to a restaurant owned by Jim Lovell (astronaut, Gemini 7, Gemini 12, Apollo 8, and Apollo 13), in Lake Forest, IL. Captain Lovell was nice enough to sign an autograph for my mother when she told him I was obsessed with all things space. This has remained on my desk ever since. Thanks, Mom!

This is my dog. Her name is Juno Crow. She likes to swim.

She also likes to dry off...
