Man on the Moon

If you believed, they put a man on the moon 40 years ago today. July 21, 1969.

I believed. I was 7 at the time and I remember the New Zealand newspaper photos being in colour. Amazing moment. My teachers at Willow Park Primary School in Northcote wouldn’t stop talking about. I am not sure if I was more impressed with the astronaut walking on the moon, or the profound discovery that newspapers could actually print more colours than black and white.

Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
