she's a threadhead

LAIKA

This is Laika, the Soviet stray who blasted into space on November 3rd, 1957. She died a few hours after launch, but it was claimed by the Russians that she had been euthanized before her oxygen had been  depleted. The truth came out in 2002. I’ve been feeling melancholic all day, it’s gray and stormy outside and not expected to clear up until Monday. I’m going to cheer myself up with a bright orange book and a cup of hot tea. Hope your weekend is sunnier than mine.
