Re: James Lovell's Autograph - ...[& others @ farthestreaches.com]

*Can purchase autographed photos, magazines, cards, etc., of U.S. and Russian astronauts/cosmonauts.  Other good stuff in here too.  A bit on the pricey side, but I might part with a few $$ to get one of Lovell's sigs.

[I think astronautalicious James Lovell should send me a free autograph for being a fan of his!]  :laugh:

Re: James Lovell's Autograph - ...[& others @ farthestreaches.com]

*James Lovell was in El Paso yesterday!  big_smile  Apparently speaking to the local Kiwanis group.  I'd just walked out of the living room when I heard my husband say, "Jim Lovell."  Sure enough, a small-segment interview with him on KVIA.

If Mundaka reads this, did you catch the news as well?

I'll bet he's a guest in the home of Frank Borman last evening -- here, in Las Cruces.  smile  They (and Bill Anders) were Apollo 8.

Lovell in El Paso

Unfortunately, goings-on in this region aren't announced properly; I didn't know Lovell was coming to this area.

::EDIT::  "West Side resident Kerry Jackson, 47, said he didn't know the danger the Apollo 13 crew faced when he was a boy."

*Huh?  And this Kerry Jackson is 9 years older than me?  I remember the incident (almost 5 years old), asking my father about it, watching news segments, and I remember my sister and I including the astronauts in our bedtime prayers during the crisis.

Looks like your prayers did the trick, Cindy!   :up:

    But, you know, I've looked really hard at the pictures of Jim Lovell you posted, and I just don't find him attractive at all ... !  (Nice fella though I'm sure he is.)
                                             tongue   big_smile

*Shaun, I'm sure your wife would be relieved to know you don't find Lovell attractive (and come to think of it, I sort of am as well).   :laugh:

I've seen lots of pics of Lovell.  He reminds me -- in his younger years -- of Kevin Costner (who, ironically, -isn't- a Hollywood favorite of mine).  Anyway...

There's just something about that man that is MMMm-mmmMM!!  ::teehee:: 

--Cindy  cool

Fixed another artifact and shifting topic
Both of these major contributors have not been back for a very long time and are quite missed...
