Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

What a Rocket Launch looks like.....Chiropractor Alert!





I downloaded a couple of weeks worth of photos from my digital camera today, and this picture sums up what going to a rocket launch at the Jackson Model Rocketry Club is all about!





Of course, I can't leave it without a photo of the reason we go to these launches. Here is Sam with a rocket he built from a kit purchased with his Christmas money. Unfortunately, it got caught in a tree and sustained some damage, but Sam was able to salvage the nose cone, motor-mount and fins, so he is just going to add on another body tube.
