The Mischief Of Motor Man, Part I

My Motor Man was, apparently, a very mischievous child. He has told me many stories of his childhood, so I thought I’d do a sort of “mini-series” here on These Days and have him relate some of that mischief to my readers.

In today’s inaugural episode, Motor Man shares his early attempt at rocket launching.


Those of you who know Motor Man personally know that mischief has continued to follow him through the years, so trust me, there’s no shortage of material for this series.

Stay tuned.

  1. Somehow I think NASA just might be glad JR isn’t interested in a career with them….hahaha….love that old photo with the fish and puppy – the puppy is such a tiny little guy – I think we need to know more about him – the fish – well….not nearly as interesting as the pup!


  2. Such good fun. You made me laugh. I look forward to the next in the series of The Mischief of Motor Man.
    I think NASA would run smoother if they had Motor Man to help them. 😀

  5. Well, who would have suspected Motor Man was so mischievous?? Great story and do I see a smile on his little boy face in that old photo?

    I have not laughed that hard in a long time, Dianna!!!! I love your series with Motor Man and LOOKING FORWARD TO MANY MORE!!!!! Tell Motor Man thank you so much for the belly laugh!! Love to you both ❤

  7. I would assume a lot of us experimented when we were young. We didn’t have video games. We had to invent them. The X-1 Matchstick Rocket program was supposed to be secret. 😉
