    Such an eclectic gathering of moon! I just read “Calling Major Tom”…a fun little story that I just so happened to pick up at the library without even thinking of timing! I was only 10 when they landed on the moon. I remember mostly being irritated that I had to ‘come in’ from the neighborhood and then the picture was so fuzzy and full of static! Bothered my 10 year old sensory self and I don’t think I could, at that age comprehend how big this really was!

      (((Nancy))) I was 14, we had just moved to Australia in February of 1969 so the world was all very different and very exciting but must say Woodstock thrilled me more than those men walking on the moon!

      • Nancy says:

        Ha. Mo, again I was 10 in 1969, when I heard about Woodstock – after the fact, of course – I was so mad!! I remember standing there, moccasins on feet, attitude-filled hip jutting out, proclaiming with passion, “If I’d have known about it, I woulda hitched!!!!” Yeas, this skinny, lil girl from CA most surely would have hitch hiked across the US! Haha Silly Nancy

    Love this grouping. Been watching coverage of the moon landing and wishing I could remember where I was or what I was doing. I was 12.

      (((Dee))) such a joyful exhibition, all of Di’s assemblages wind up and twirl around in some way, she had a lot of fun rebuilding those ballerinas & moon men!

    Love knowing that Di’s assemblages wind up and twirl … what fun it must have been to see them in person …

    I was 13 in 1969 and what I remember was getting to stay up late to watch the moonwalk (we were on the east coast) … lying on the shag rug in the living room, trying to get close enough to see on my parents’ tiny black and white TV … through the snow and the scratchy sound and those infernal beeps … but still, the wonder of it
