July 2oth, 1969: Where were you?

I'll bet just everybody who was alive and old enough to remember knows where they watched Neil Armstrong take his giant step for mankind.

I was 10 years old, living in Kansas City. We were at another family's house watching a little 13" black and white tv propped up on an end table. There was no light in the house except for the glow from that little television. It was warm, of course, so all he windows were open and a fan was blowing. I think there may have been lightning......?

I guess to this day it's the coolest thing I ever saw. Men were walking on the moon and I was watching it on television.

And the Chiefs were a good team.

Looking back, I really had no gripes from the ages of about 10-12.

What do you old....er, middle aged....dudes remember about that night?

Either asleep in my lead based paint crib or in one of my parents arms. I was 21 days old at the time.

I was one year and fifty some-odd days old. There's a good chance I was pooping myself at the time.

I should have known. All the guys my age are either in bed or watching Lawrence Welk.

I'll bump this around 6 in the morning.

That was pretty close to when I was conceived, actually. Now I am disturbed.

Change the location to Hanover Park, IL.

My mom got a set of pictures of the astronauts and the moon from the local A&P a few months later. They held a prized place on my wall for quite a while.

Not me. I walked my 10 year old self on down to Area 51 and saw it all live.

Couldn't get a decent piece of toast, though.
