Thanks for reminding me to send my kid Sis a happy B-day message.

Close enough, Yeah, my Sis was 10 then. I didn't pay attention to your math actually. ;)


But thanks for making me feel a year younger, if only for a little while. ;O

Oops, year older. See how much it mattered.

Thanks

Wow. 49 years. Hard to believe. (I mean hard to believe I'm that old - I was 19).

I don't really remember watching the "small step," but I vividly remember listening to the landing, and the thrill that went through me on hearing, "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed."

Small step

I stayed up late (after midnight?) to watch the small step. Low-res image on a 13 inch B&W TV but pretty thrilling. I was 19 too.

I was sitting on the floor of my grandparents' living room, mesmerized. I was twelve at the time.
