THE SPACE ALIEN HELPS THE WINDOW WASHERS

As Loyal Readers know, Your Editor lives in a tall apartment building.  From time to time the windows need to be washed.  This task is done by brave men in a specially designed platform securely fastened to supports on the roof.   

Here is a picture taken on July 26, 2022, right outside Your Editor's apartment!  


The Space Alien saw how hard they were working and offered to help!  

Here is the Space Alien, now well equipped, preparing to carry out this important task!   

Thank you brave window washers!  And thank you Space Alien!

THE SPACE ALIEN RECALLS INDEPENDENCE DAY

The Space Alien has been studying the Declaration of Independence.     

The Space Alien's carefully framed facsimile of this document in which the United States declared independence from Great Britain, is dated July 4, 1776, the date on which we celebrate this event.  

It was necessary to explain to the public the reasons for this declaration, and it took two days to reach agreement on the text.  Today we may read this in our own copies of the Declaration of Independence.  
 
Loyal Readers may appreciate this exclusive photo showing the Space Alien helping Thomas Jefferson with this important task!


 Once Congress had approved this resolution it was sent to a printer and 200 copies were made. Of these, 26 remain.  


Here is a link to a printable copy with with more information: 

And here is more historical information.

The Space Alien urges Loyal Readers to read the Declaration of Independence today, and to consider how we can fulfill and expand its promise!

THE SPACE ALIEN CELEBRATES A BIRTHDAY! AGAIN!

Once again the Space Alien returned from important missions in outer space in time to celebrate Your Editor's upcoming birthday!

"Such big birthdays!" exclaimed the Space Alien, carrying an enormous cake!

"These candles consume nearly all the oxygen in the room," continued the Space Alien, bravely bearing this exquisite example of culinary artistry, "but that is but a minor inconvenience as we celebrate this auspicious day!" 



All of us in the busy editorial offices of the Space Alien Gazette invite loyal readers to enjoy this culinary masterpiece -- if not on exquisite china dessert plates, then at least on computer screens!  

Thank you for your Loyal Readership of the Space Alien Gazette!

THE SPACE ALIEN DEPARTS

Dear Loyal Readers:

This will be the final regular monthly issue of the Space Alien Gazette.  

Your Editor is no longer up to producing issues of the highest quality that our Loyal Readers deserve. 

And the Space Alien has decided that this would be a good time to explore other activities in space and elsewhere.

The Space Alien Gazette may return as an occasional publication, or it may not.  

Back issues may eventually be found at SpaceAlienGazette.blogspot.com

Thank you for your loyal readership!



                                   BON VOYAGE, SPACE ALIEN!

                                                    ###

THE SPACE ALIEN SENDS A VALENTINE


 



  

The Space Alien stayed up all night writing this special Valentine for Loyal Readers:

Today may be a sunny day, or maybe one with snow, 

But whatever weather this day brings, this one thing I know:

I love my Loyal Readers, and I think it would be fine, 

If each and every one of you would be my Valentine!

        Your friend always!  The Space Alien

THE SPACE ALIEN CELEBRATES THANKSGIVING, 2021

The Space Alien invited guests for Thanksgiving!

But as in earlier years when the Space Alien had extended this invitation, Tom Turkey ran away!          

                                                                                



  

"I'm sorry!" exclaimed Tom Turkey. "I seem to have another appointment!  Gotta go!" 

And the Pilgrim Turkey likewise seemed to be otherwise occupied! 


                           

What to do?  Thanksgiving wouldn't be the same without guests!

But the resourceful Space Alien was determined to make the day special, and carefully prepared fall vegetables with plenty of lovely orange and yellow!   



Then the Space Alien baked a beautiful apple pie!  


It would be a lonely Thanksgiving without these friends, thought the Space Alien, but still a thankful one.  Publishing a newspaper read by so many Loyal Readers was surely something to be thankful for!  

But just as the Space Alien sat down to enjoy a beautiful meal, there was a knock at the door!

Why, it was Tom Turkey and the Pilgrim Turkey!  

"Could we join you for your Thanksgiving feast?" they asked.

"Of course," said the Space Alien -- "Please come in and sit down!  I'm so thankful to have friends like you!"

"And we are thankful for you!" replied Tom Turkey and the Pilgrim Turkey.

And they all enjoyed their lovely meal together!  

All of us here in the busy editorial offices of the Space Alien Gazette wish our Loyal Readers -- whether together or separately -- a peaceful Thanksgiving!
