Moon-Day, Monday ... So Good to Me!

50 years ago, the paper of record, the Tulsa World, provided its coverage of the exciting Moon landing and Moon walks.
I only kept the front page, not the whole section.  Boy, how exhilarating it was to be an American kid those days!

And a Brit won a wager over the timing of our Moon landing.

My favorite note is pointing out that the staid, official Tulsa World staff had a sense of humor amidst the celebration and seriousness.

Look at the date slug.  What day of the week it is?  Why, it's MOON-DAY!

Many happy Moon-day return to you all, and I'll see you back here next Monday!
