I would say, that Ed must have 100 "likes" minimum, with this one, we have 43.

Like barely describes what I feel about these pictures. I just wish it was "Photo of the Day"!

For some reason, a bit from Python comes to mind: "...if you've enjoyed watching the show just half as much as we've enjoyed doing it, then we've enjoyed it twice as much as you."

But what I really mean, is that if you enjoy posting these photos half as much as I enjoy seeing them, them we're both having a really great time. Thank you for your efforts.

OK, I am beginning to get the message...

Thanks to all for the replies and 'likes' and thanks to Robert for providing the space to post my weekly photos.

To be continued...

The top photo makes me envious of those cSers who've had the privilege of interacting with these gentlemen personally, especially in recent years. I regrettably have not...I recognized Cernan, Young, Aldrin, Gordon, and Cunningham instantly. Stafford, Schweickart, and Mitchell took a minute or two, and I whiffed completely on Anders and Duke. Sad to think how few such gatherings we likely have left.

Ed - like everyone else I thoroughly enjoy Saturday mornings to wake up and discover what treasure you have selected for our delight.

I'm surprised that nobody has gone back to find out what was the first one you posted. This said, I've taken the liberty of doing so. I hope you don't mind.

Hey Ed, do you have any rarely seen X-15 or Lifting Body photos you can post once in a while?

X-15 and lifting body photos are a good idea. Two of my favorite subjects and I have a great photo collection of both programs.

Again, thanks for all the positive comments. The show will go on.

Ed, would a photo of me carrying the Command Module's shopping count as a lifting body?
