Failure and Success

This picture shows an actual event. In 2005 we were at Potter County for our usual Labor Day vacation and were shooting rockets. As you know by now this is popular at our house. The boys put together a styrofoam plane and a rocket engine just to see what would happen. It was crazy to watch this thing go up into the air and then zoom in a crazy pattern, nearly taking out our dog, Sally, the husky we had then. She later died...wonder if the fear took years off her life, poor thing. Anyway, back to the story...the plane crashed to the ground and burned!!!
My brother, the artist, had his camera on the whole thing and for Christmas that year we received this poster. I love it! Really, these are the actual pictures from that exciting event and I think that the caption says it all!
