A Connection

"Mom? Who are those people? Are they winning Grammys right now?"

"No, they're performing. That's Miranda Lambert, she's married to Blake Shelton, and the guy is Billie Joe Armstrong from a band called Green Day."

"Wait, is he related to the astronaut Neil Armstrong, from the moon?"

"I don't know."

"If he sings that "the eagle has landed," then we'll know."


  1. Well, that's genius. Now I hope they ARE related. (You know, I could totally see Neil Armstrong in guyliner.)


  2. Bob, thank you for making me laugh out loud. xo

  3. I think "The Eagle Has Landed" sounds like a great song title.

    However, once, years ago, when I was substitute teaching a history class of high school sophomores, I asked if anyone could tell me the first man to land on the moon. A boy immediately raised his hand, and, when I called on him, he proudly answered "Louis Armstrong!"

    Hello, Dolly. The eagle has landed.
