One Small Step For A Man

Hard to believe it's been 40 years since landing on the moon. I still remember it so clearly. It was by far the greatest achievement of mankind. I found this spectacular batch of pictures of the mission on the Boston Globe website.

How 'bout our weather this weekend. Record-breaking cool and very mild afternoons. We did see a sprinkle of rain Sunday afternoon. I'll take 80s and 60s any Summer.

One final note - too bad for Tom Watson. So close....still a great achievement for a 59 year old.

Loving this weather!!!

I'm excited about the moon walk anniversary. I was only 10 at the time, but I remember being so excited about it!

Still hope we have a manned mission to Mars someday.

84 degrees here at the moment! I'll take it! We had thunder awhile ago but no rain in my backyard. :(

Yep, looking forward to tomorrow. I, too, remember that day. We were living on Jana Drive in Monroe. Jimmy was a toddler and Trish was a baby.

I remember looking outside and seeing the street totally empty. Everyone was glued to the TV.
