It Was 40 Years Ago Today
This is the cover of the scrapbook I put together that summer when I was 10.
I clipped articles out of the newspaper every morning and pasted them into this scrapbook.
We were at our camp on Lake Champlain this week. One of the rules of camp was no TV. This was the one year that rule was broken. We had a little black & white television we watched every step of the mission on.
It seems like yesterday to me, and the kids think of it as ancient history. Of course, it was only 42 years before Apollo 11 that Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic.
