Man on the Moon

This was a great day back in 1969. Neil Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the moon. I remember it well. I watched all the TV coverage I could because I was so excited by the very thought of the entire mission. It's hard to believe our space program has fallen on such hard times that I'll probably never see the like of this again. I wonder if even my kids will. Makes me a little melancholy to think about it.

    Bill, we were up in the mountains for the weekend but got home in time to watch the moon landing.

    Now you need to worry every mission because NASA's recent track record has been less than stellar (so to speak).

  2. In 1969 I believed that people would be living on the moon by now, deluded fool that I was.

    This date has a special meaning for us as it was the date on which our elder daughter stood up on her own.

  4. That's a cool associational memory.
