Nov. 20, 1953: Now it's time to leave the capsule...if you dare...

Barbara,



Welcome to your 70’s…

As Joe the Bartender, Jackie used to talk with an unseen customer - "Mr. Dennehy:




Check, please...Reality Check...


As I’ve come to see LIFE…TIME is a mixture of Up's...Down's...and a lot of in-between's...






Music for Space Travel through TIME...






CLOSING SET...You were 11...


First song gets us in a celebration mode...And the second...despite it's arrogant lyrics...reminds us that...


"time is always on our side"...
