Excellent choice for a photo Ed. I wonder what was going through Wally's mind at the time the photo was taken?

I hoped that you did present a photo of Wally Schirra, and you did. Great (both).

Two days ago I discovered your "photo of the week" postings... They are really great. I spend the entire afternoon looking at all the pictures you posted....

Thank you for posting this picture of Mr. Schirra... Maybe some pictures of his famous gotchas?

Wally would probably say regarding this photo: "Would you like fries with your order?..."

Another great photo. How did you assemble such a great collection?

Thanks, Ed. If I am not mistaken the top one was just after Cece Bibby painted the Sigma 7, the Gemini is from the combined Gemini 6 and 7 crew session and the third is the great man from the Apollo 7 crew shot. Am I right?

Clear Skies, Skyray!
