43 years ago today...

Superbly geeky and cool.  I was 3 at the time, too young to really care much, but all these years later, watching this video on my lunch break gave me chills.  Landing on the moon on July 20, 1969.



So cool.

So you are 46? You've been of MILF age for a year, then.

Uh, except I'm not a mom, unless you count my puppies!

A mere technicality.

I was sitting in a bar in Rome, at about 0300 local when they landed... And the ENTIRE bar broke out in cheers. Walking back to the pensione, every store that had TVs had them on, and I saw a lot of TVs in first floor windows. People were EVERYWHERE!

I was a month shy of 4, myself, and I remember watching it on TV, then being taken out to the backyard to look at the moon in the sky and make the connection that the people on TV were really and truly there. What a moment!

I was 16, and walked back in the Summer heat from the bowling alley with my buds to watch it.
Remarkable.
Later - wiseasses as we were, we thought Armstrong should have said, "Coca Cola" first.
He'd have been set for life.

You keep coming up with my favorites lately...I was 25, watching it on my MIL's tv. I was watching, then I would walk outside to look at the full moon, then walk back inside. I was such a geek it was awhile before I realized Woodstock was at the same time.
