    I think your link is broken....try this.

    BTW: Neil Armstrong was supposed to wish my sister a Happy 16th BD while on the moon that day, but Ma Bell being what she was back then...the call was lost.

    I was 7 years old and with my family at our summer house on the Jersey Shore. I have no memory of the lunar landing.

    I was just a happy ten-year-old kid in the midst of my summer vacation traveling with my family - I was an airline brat.

    (Airline brat = a kid who flies way too much when he'd rather just stay home with his buds doing regular things like riding his bike!)

    My parents forced my brother and I to sit in front of the TV and watch the moon landing because it was so historic.

    I was 14 and glued to the TV too, hoping in the following days to see something to convince me all the sci-fi B pics were true. But there were no men in the moon, just on it. lol

    I had also just realized I was gay and was certain there were probably only three or so in the entire world. One in Canada, one in the US and probably one in Europe.

    I was 12 and climbing Mt. Katahdin in ME. I remember, because we listened to this on the transistor radio. My father was peripherally involved with the laser reflector that was being left on the surface of the moon.

    I was 7 years old and little did I know it, but I would at 7 become semi famous: My family would be the first family to move into was would become known as a subdivision (August of that year) and because of integration, I would be one of the first blacks to go to a previously all white school and would be the only one for two years! I learned about the lunar landing. We did not watch it because my grandfather did not believe we as humans could go the moon.

    I can't even remember where I took off my glasses.

    As for moon landings, I was 5 years old and annoyed that Saturday morning cartoons were preempted. on ALL THREE channels

    I was in fourth grade. We were listening to the moon landing on the school's intercom system. I remember flirting with a girl instead of listening to the historic event. How wrong I was back then!

    Dude, I don't think sperm cells live that long!

    Me, I was enjoying summer vacation between grades 1 and 2. I have no memory of the moon landing...can't even remember if my house had a TV at that time.

    20 years old and stationed at Fort Dix, New Jersey. I followed the landing itself on a TV in the company day room, I think around or after midnight our time.
