If a lifetime can be likened to a day, then this is Happy Hour!
"Is this a great country...or what?"Yes, it certainly is. Events like this remind me of the thrill I used to feel about everything involving the U.S. going into space. (I've missed those days.)
Events like this remind me of the thrill I used to feel about everything involving the U.S. going into space. (I've missed those days.)Cynthia put up a good post on just this subject yesterday. It really WAS exciting to witness the "early days" of the space program, and we were blessed to be alive during that time.Thus spake The Old Fart. ;-)
Amazing stuff. I had my doubts, but they did it. And, YES, it was thrilling to be on hand when they sent folks into space for the first time and actually landed a man on the friggin' moon. If you were around then, you never forgot the chill you got watching it happen.
I was indeed impressed....bet the Russian Czar(PooPooTin) was as well.
This is a great country! I remember watching the men walk on the moon the first time. I was very small and my memory is very vague, but I do remember it. As a 4 year old, I didn't grasp the significance at the time, but I am glad I was there for it. Oh, and GO NAVY!!!
Jim, Pat, and Becky: We're all in agreement, and all of us impressed, as well.re: the moon landings. I've mentioned this before in other places, but I'll say it again... I watched the first moon landings in an after-hours bar in Wakkanai, Japan, along with a couple of buddies, a couple of Japanese bar girls, and the mama-san who owned the joint. There was light in the sky when we walked out of the bar that morning, and were high on much more than beer. Lest I be misconstrued: We were high on America. (And more than a lil bit drunk, too.) ;-)
Just be polite... that's all I ask.
