anniversary of Moon Landing!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

anniversary of Moon Landing!

Postby portia » Thu Jul 17, 2014 9:40 am

Saturday is the 45th (!!) anniversary of the Moon Landing .
Tempus fugit.

Anyone want to say where he/she was?

I will start.

I had tickets for the Old Globe Production of the "The Tempest" But there was NO way I could leave the house without watching this. So, I stayed and all the family watched and cheered.
Then, I left and the production was delayed a few minutes. One of the actors came out on the stage and gave a sort talk about what a great day it was, etc.
I am sure that many people thought we'd continue and be on Mars, by now. In a sense we are, but not as we thought.

I was still just a kid, but it was a big deal for us to stay up and watch the footage on TV. The moonwalk started around 11 pm, I think, but we got to stay up past midnight!!!11 woooo hoooo! ;)

I remember it as if it were yesterday.

I was waiting for my date to show so we could go to the drive-in.
As he pulled into the yard, Neil was just coming down the ladder.
We all yelled for him to hurry!
And he came running through the open door as the "One Step" was about to happen.
It was sooo cool to see men on the moon.

Many people remember Neil's "One small step...."
I remember "Ain't this fun, Buzz?"
