    I started that year as a regular nerd and then became a drunk.
    Poor career choice.

    Default Not thought off yet

    I wasn't even thought of yet and neither were my older brother or sister. I don't even think my parents were married yet. Hmmm I should ask them next time I see them.

    Default Wher was I in 1969

    Let's see, 1969? Hmmm, thats was a long time ago. However in April of 1969 I was 8 years old. My parents (going through a very messy divorce) sent me to live with my grandparents in Daytona Beach,Florida. A big change from the Bronx. When Apollo 11 launched, my grandparents where parked on the side of this huge highway leading to the space center. I actually got to see the Saturn V rise into the air. It was very cool. I returned to the Bronx a year later.

    I was lying on the carpet in the living room, very close to turning 11, watching every second like it was life itself. I'd already made the choice that I wanted to work for NASA, so this was the most exciting thing I could imagine. I'll never, ever forget it or how I felt all giddy and like it had to be a dream. BTW, I did achieve my dream and just passed my 23rd anniversary working for NASA.
