Yes Michael, that’s cake you smell

Tuesday, July 26th, 2005
My good friend, Michael Sampson, wants to know if he smells cake? Yes, it's true. I'm old enough to remember watching Niel Armstrong step onto the moon.

The week of my sixth birthday, NASA's Apollo 11 crew gave me a treat:

I remember sitting front of our black and white television to watch the Apollo 11 crew land on the moon. I remember Neil Armstrong slowly climbing down the ladder of the lunar lander, stepping on to the moon's surface and saying the famous words that will be forever etched in my mind: "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."

Too bad you weren't around to see it, Michael. :-)

Well, at least you can see how NASA celebrated my birthday this year.

And the cake? Double Chocolate. Mmmmm. Delicious.

Thanks for the birthday greetings, Michael.

Happy Birthday Eric

Is that an old ICA shirt you're wearing in the picture on Michael's site?
