GOODBYE, NEIL ARMSTRONG – AND HERE’S A WINK FOR YOU

So Neil Armstrong has died, the first man to walk on the moon. Such an amazing achievement by the whole team, and so many iconic moments and pictures.

At a time when it would be all too easy for the tributes to get schmalzy, I love the humour of his family, who have said:

“The next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.”

Maybe he’ll wink back img_a1902004aa1[1]

    1. I was in Italy at the time, on a work camp – when I came home it was all over! But of course those amazing pictures have been played again and again, so I didn’t miss out altogether.
