Wallpaper Description:
50 years ago... in a way it's hard to believe that it's been that long.

I was at horseback riding camp when it happened. I loved horses and riding camp. I had worked hard to earn some of the money to get there-- the horses made it expensive.

The only day I regretted not being home was Sunday, July 20, 1969, the day when they landed on the moon. The camp counselors had a small black & white TV for about 150 kids. The camp was out in the middle of nowhere, so we didn't get a very good signal or picture. A lot of the younger kids wouldn't stop talking; they didn't seem to realize how exciting and important that landing on the moon was. At least I didn't think so.

Now, in 2019, it is simply amazing to realize what they accomplished in 1969. It had taken 400,000 people to get Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins to get to the moon. They thought that their computer equipment was sophisticated and ahead of it's time. It was... for back then. The software & programming it took to get men to the moon easily fits into a smartphone today. Simply amazing!

Do you remember where you were and what you were doing when Neil Armstrong took his first step onto the moon? Feel free to put it in the wallpaper comments! :D

"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

Neil Armstrong July 20, 1969
(Said when he took his first step onto the moon's surface.)

PS. I felt sorry for Michael Collins. He went all the way to the moon and remained in the command module. I wished that he'd had a chance to walk on the moon too. I bet that I wasn't the only child who felt that way... :)

Well I guess i'm the oldest, I was 17, just graduated high school and landed my first full time job as a billing clerk (before the computer age) haha. I saw it on the news the following day but was in shut eye at that time of night zzzzz's.
When I was in the Eight Grade I remember watching Gemini in Science Class (Mr. Lacatina) on television. :)

I was 13 and didn’t watch it. I knew about it but I never got into it.
