You Lost WHAT...?

What I want to know in the hell do you manage to lose the moon rocks?

I mean, it's not like we can just run down to the corner store and get some more! Someone needs to explain this to me! You better NOT tell me that you accidentally threw them out when you cleaned the store room!

NASA admits losing moon rocks

NASA's Inspector General says the US space agency seems to have misplaced some pieces of the moon, meteorites and other space items.

NASA concedes that more than 500 pieces of space material have been stolen or been missing since 1970.

That includes 218 stolen moon samples that were returned and about two dozen moon rocks and chunks of lunar soil that were reported lost last year.

NASA has loaned more than 21,500 samples to researchers, who in some cases said they never ended up using the material.

The report says NASA needs to keep better track of what is sent to researchers and museums

That's the final straw! As of now, you are all grounded from any further trips to space until you find all those rocks! Ya hear me?

C'mon, my friends, let's have coffee in the kitchen this morning.

The moon residents resented the hell out of our taking anything of theirs so they came and took them back.

Hey Gipsiwriter...
Boy, you just never know, do ya?

Kids being what they are, he might have them at that! Be sure and look under the bed!

Thanks for coming by today!

Hey Sixbears...
Don't you just hate having to make another trip just for a bunch of rocks?

Still, I say put someone else in charge of keeping track of the next bunch!

Thanks, my friend, for coming by today!

Hey Momlady...
That would help to explain all the recent sightings of their recovery crafts!

Not sure we should make them mad, ya know?

Thanks for coming over this morning!

Hey Rob...
I can just hear them now. "They are NOT lost! We just don't know where they are right now!"

Typical reaction from the folks in charge!

Thanks for coming by today!

Hey Phelan...
Probably hiding on some politicians desk somewhere! Know what I mean?

Next time we need to attach some of those beeping key finders to them!

Thanks for coming over this morning!

Hey JoJo...
I have to agree that some of those good ol' boys up there in D.C. seem to have some deep pockets!

Warming up a little here as well! Supposed to get cold again this weekend!

Thanks, sweetie, for dropping by today!
