i put in a 16 hr day workin' my butt off picking, loading and transporting citrus fruit....
when he put foot on the moon, i was playing back-gammon with the sandman...
I haven't the paper in front of me, but I know the year to be 1933
The Miami Herald, Society Section. Front page. Photo montage of a dozen or more local kids and tourist's kids doing various 'interesting' cute kid things.
All the children in the montage are great-lookin. There's my departed daddy "Judge", age 5 and his 9 year old brother, Paul dressed in immactualte, white tennis togs, one teeing up a golf ball for the other. Ah, something my grandma mustv'e cherished, a version of the kids in the same clothes is framed and in my closet today.
Anywho, appropos of Angeline's neat personal brush with Elvis himself in misplaced phone call, this story isn't nearly so interesting.
In the montage, upper right is an infant boy playing with toy sailboat in tiny kiddie pool. Caption: Edwin Eugene Aldrin, son of visiting parents Mr. and Mrs -- Aldrin of --- NJ.
Hey- he was the second man on the moon! I had -two- copies of the paper. Aldrin's historical curator had never heard of this first-print-photo (?) of an original American hero. So I sent it on and now have one!
Who remembers that summer day in '69 when we watched such an incredible moment as can never be topped again, with the same life-changing result?
