: : To All: Also, besides Mary's birthday, on this date in history in 1969 men first walked on the moon. That's some good company, Mary!
: Well, now! THAT explains THAT, now doesn't it?? Thanks, Bro!
Oh, you mean all that celebratory hoo-ha back in 1969
wasn't for ME??? Dagnabit!! And so many people in my
life have wished I had been sent to the moon, too!
Since there are a lot of Gray Hairs here, I'm sure we
all remember the incredible feeling of watching Neil
Armstrong climb down that ladder, and then going outside
to look at the moon to marvel that two men were actually
up there. My dad said the only thing that he could
compare it to was how he felt as a young man when he
heard that Lindbergh had landed in Paris. He and I
were both nuts about the space program. One of the
best memories I have is when he hoisted me up on
his shoulders to watch Sputnik move through the night
sky right over our house.
Thanks again for all the birthday greetings, everybody!
