    Great story and thanks for posting. I don't remember it primarily because I was only one year old at the time.

    I temember every launch and lunar landing....at least I remember "watching" them live or close to live. The schools would put it up on a TV screen if it was school day. Otherwise we sat around the TV at home and wstched.
    My grandmother, who was born in 1884, never believed we landed on the moon. She also had some rather victorian notions about the income tax and women's suffrage...:-)
    But we watched them all. I was like a holliday.
