Re: July 20, 1969: Apollo 11

I was 9 years old. Watched this on our black and white TV set. My Dad was a quality assurance rep for the government at the facility that built the fuel tanks for the command module and the lunar module. I had models of everything, and still have some of the old space posters from that era.

Where do you guys go to laminate your maps?
I've had 8.5" x 11" or so maps/photos/items laminated at FedEx Kinkos (right next to Lava 10, Main St & Hwy 114 in Grapevine). :tiphat:
Office Depot does laminating as well, if you have one of those around.

Shoot, out here I can stand on a can of tuna and see Amarillo. :mrgreen: That's what I found in Saudi Arabia. The top...
