Today (Sept. 17) we celebrate the birthdays of Tom Stafford (1930) Edgar Mitchell (1930) and Pam Melroy (1961).

Interesting to note that Tom Stafford was announced as a member of Group 2 on his 32nd birthday.

Today is (again) an astronaut birthday tri-fecta.

Tom Stafford in 1930
Edgar Mitchell in 1930
Pam Melroy in 1961

Though I only fly in space in my dreams and in my artwork I share the date with these fine folks - me in 1956.

Maybe some day we'll all go out to dinner together.

Many happy returns to General Tom Stafford and Dr Ed Mitchell, who I hope to meet both again at Autographica next week, on their 80th birthdays. Also Col Pam Melroy.

My wife's birthday as well.

There was a birthday gala at the Stafford Air and Space Museum last evening. I hope some members of cS attended and will share photos.

Tim (KSCartist) requested some photos from the Stafford party this weekend.

In attendance were, Armstrong, Cernan, Lovell, Engle, Cunningham, Haise, Lousma, Bean and obviously the General himself...

Forgive my indulgence of the unique picture of the last and first man together with me. That was a thrill.

Happy 83rd Birthday to both General Stafford and Dr. Mitchell.

I have had the pleasure of meeting both men, and they were both very humble about their extraordinary achievements.
