Now, I expect this week will be unusual with two separate launch days. I'm being tame, too, aiming at one launch PER MONTH in this round for 2003. Here's a reprise photo to represent today's launch (as was yesterday's picture of the Cobra):
Another great May day - and I launched my Freedom 7 (above) as well as a mini-X-Ray. I even included a payload! TWO payloads, one a C3P0 model and the other a dandelion blossom. Two excellent launches and two great recoveries. (1/A t in the Mercury, and an At in the X-ray.) I'll have to reattach the X-Ray nose cone (it keeps coming off) or make it a separate payload recovery system...

First launch since November!
Norris and I just went down to the field, this perfect May night and launched the Cobra again:
Two beautiful launches (B-6-4 and B-4-2, if anyone cares). Perfect launch and recovery both times. Just at dusk so the sky was blue but the rocket burned bright - wonderful!

Aiming to launch
If all goes well, I'll launch *something* Saturday, 5/17. Here's hoping.
