Doc, Mon ami,
I am so sorry. I have been away making the trades and did not realize I had missed this most happy day for you. Let me say now, !!!HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Are you now, oooh say 29? It must have been the photographs of Sputnik you remember no?

: : : 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!

: Doc M
