One last thing...

I've still got the packet NASA sent me; I was older than I thought, one of the booklets is dated March 1987, which means I was probably seven years old when I wrote the letter on that yellow paper with the blue lines that you use in elementary school.

The packet was a pretty standard information packet, with pictures of astronauts and some information about the various spacecraft, but there was one touch in it that still gets me. Remember, I wrote the letter to get an engine with which to build a rocket. Attached to a sheet about the Delta rocket, there was a post it note- the glue is now gone, but written on it is:
"Jeremy,
Build yours like a Delta."

It's unsigned.

Yeah, I just spent the past few minutes flipping through the packet.
