Fly Me To The Moon – up up and away from the insecurities of the final day of posting for Alex’ fest – there have been some great entries and from the moment I read Roland’s post on Sunday – I never had a chance: his post is excellent.
Then I read/watched Ellie’s video ... amazingly clever ... and so all the 138 bloggers went – how can one even enter a competition that in one’s own mind has been won ... needs must – play the game, Hilary.
There was Elise’s little plywood model Alexes (is that a word?!) that someone suggested she get a production line going for ebay, or a shop of her own ... not sure what the French would say about that ...
Then of course he’s posted “Who Am I?” ... as he says he’s a head-banging movie geek ... so he’d know about the movie Fly Me to the Moon and all those versions of the song ..
Fly Me to the Moon is a definite in Alex' life ... CassaStar, CassaFire and the soon to be released CassaStorm ... all are set for intergalactic take off ...
On reflecting and worrying! I drifted on from the song (and I don’t like Frank Sinatra – for some reason ... but I’m a heathen!), found there were at least 49 other notable recordings.

Yet the most important version was Frank’s – played by the astronauts of Apollo 10 on their lunar-orbital mission and again on the moon itself by the astronaut Buzz Aldrin during the Apollo 11 landing.
Alex with his trilogy I’m sure is flying to the moon and beyond – perhaps he’ll establish the first library in space ... he doesn’t like basking in the spotlight – another phrase that sprang to mind ... and something he mentioned.

When I googled the phrase I came up with this British site (Claire Shrader) – it is interesting – she was an introvert ... but found theatre, then wrote her first play ... the doors had opened.
She describes herself as a free spirit. I have no idea about her work ... but reading her bio and seeing the website – made me think that it was a good-look/read-link for Wednesday’s IWSG day ...

Back to Alex – also thinking about who would Alex look like and Mrs C supporting her hubby in the back ground ... I came up with Peter Pan – a mixture of Peter himself, Mr George Darling ...
... and then Mrs C as Mary Darling with an ability to become Tinkerbell .... keeping Alex safe as he darts across the skies visiting us all ... making sure he returns to the comfort of the Darling-Cavanaugh home ...
I haven’t conformed, I’m sure I haven’t complied ... but many congratulations to Mark "The Madman" Koopmans, Morgan "Whammy" Shamy, David "The Kingpin" King, and Stephen “the Breakthrough” Tremp for hosting the Cheers Cavanaugh Blogfest.
There have been some fantastic entries – creative words, songs, guitarists, rappers ... all I can say is this blogosphere contains some incredibly creative peeps ... and Alex I say GOOD LUCK to you for selecting the winner/s.
Boy = good luck Alex!!! and congratulations to those who rise to the top of the winners pile ...
Cheers to you all ... from a champagne swinging hot tamales girl – occasionally I will vaguely conform!
Oh - one question .. has anyone asked what the J stands for in Alex J. Cavanaugh ...... Mrs C - any comment?
