One Giant Leap


“Would you like to live in Auckland?” he asked
“Yes! I’ll be able to see my sister”
“Auckland not Oakland” he replied.
New Zealand, one huge step to the other side of world

This is my entry in this weekend’s Trifecta Challenge.  We were told :

Trifecta tricycle“Forty-three years ago today, Neil Armstrong became the first person to ever walk on the moon.  In celebration of Moon Day we want you to write 33 words about someone who took a giant leap.  It can mean whatever you’d like, just make sure you write exactly 33 words.”

If you want to know more about Trifecta or join in the challenges click on the tricycle above.  Good luck, it’s fun to try the challenges.

  1. Hmm, maybe i should try these challenges, I laughed when i read yours, having been to Oakland AND Auckland! c


  2. well done! Made me giggle a bit too. Oakland eh?


    • Well my elder sister lives in LA so I thought I would get to see her more often. And one man many years ago, got on the wrong plane and landed in Auckland – yes true and reported in the media – although it wouldn’t happen today.


  3. Lol! Either spot is a giant leap!


  4. Funny! Oakland, Aukland…same thing, really, right?

    OK, not really 🙂


  5. And you told it in 33 words! I’m sure you would have liked being near your sister.


    • Yes indeed I would Patti. But we have had times together but not nearly often or long enough. See her comment further down – she’s Christine. 🙂


  6. My answer is yes! When do we leave?
    Thanks for linking up. Please come on back for the new challenge this week.


  7. What a great challenge to meet Judith. Well done!


  8. Christine in Los Angeles

    So, what’s preventing a move to Oakland? Or, remember the condo we looked at, in Orange County? You really should move to California.
    God bless, Christine


    • Do I need a Green Card to come and live in that lovely condo? Why didn’t I just buy it then. Oh well, the best laid plans etc etc Love you big sister. 🙂
