...July 20th, 1969, that the first men landed on the moon. Is anyone beside me old enough to remember that amazing day?

Yes Rob, I am old enough to remember that spectacular day!!! We had been camping and made sure we got home in time to see the landing. My dad and I were in the backyard, setting up the tent to air out from a rainy camping trip, when my brother came running out yelling, "It's on TV!!!" Needless to say, the tent fell to the ground and we rushed in to watch......I was turning 11 the following month......what a rememberance................

I wasn't even a twinkle in my Daddy's eye yet.........

I'm kind of bummed that I missed out on seeing the first man land on the moon. What an amazing moment in history!

I was seven years old at the time, so I'm sure my Mom and Dad must have been watching it on television at the time. Guess I was too busy with the Brady Bunch to pay attention at the time...

You must have been busy with something else Kathy, because our beloved Brady Bunch didn't debut till September, 1969 a couple of months after the landing..............hmmmmmm, I wonder what was on during that time that had a 7 year old girl so busy...... :haha:

Wasnt born yet, but I bet it is amazing to remember the day instead of reading about it in a book.

Yeah, if you were a kid who was interested in space travel, the summer of '69 was a great time. Thumbsup

Of course I wasn't there but I heard so much of Woodstock Festival of '69. By any chance Rob, were you there? Somehow I can picture you as a hippie back in the days. :haha:

Nah, I was too young to go to Woodstock. So I just sat naked in the mud in my backyard, painted my face, and sang me some righteous Hendrix tunes. I'm trying to remember whether the whole experience was groovy or far out. I'm thinking groovy. Yes... definitely groovy, man. Cool
