Neil Armstrong walks on the MOON!! 50 years ago and other events.

Was talking with that sweetheart Snook today and she made reference to someone we all know and love being in his 40's.

I thought about it for a second and realized "Hey I am in my 40's........for 4 more days".

Yuppers I was born on the day that a cocky test pilot turned astronaut named Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. July 20, 1969

I have had it explained to me both ways.
Some have said it went like this: person 1 "Hey did you hear Neil Armstrong just walked on the moon?"
person 2 "Who cares, Naltedtirt was just born!"

While others have it switched around saying "who cares he was born Neil Armstrong just walked on the moon!"

Yes, sir and ma'am, I am coming up on 50 years, half a century, old enough to know better, act like I am 14 half the time, know just enough about things to be a little dangerous to myself or others....lol

Growing up I had 3 sets of grandparents. My mom's biological parents, the people that raised her and my dad's parents.
The people that raised my mom were grandparents to me and my "grandfather" had the exact birthday as myself (except the year was a lot different). That was always special for him and for me.

I remember once when I was 4, my grandpa told me not to do something and I did it anyway. He said he was going to spank me and I ran out the door and hid behind a woodpile. He pretended to hunt for me but did not find me. I waited behind the woodpile for 10 minutes or so then returned to the house as if nothing had happened. My grandpa did not spank me.

My grandpa told me a story about the first automobile he ever saw. He said he was walking down a country road and all of a sudden a car came around the corner. My grandpa was so scared he jumped a fence, tore his pants and climbed a tree.

Once (around that same time period in my life I got in trouble at my father's parents house. My mom and dad were both there. My Grandma seeing that I was in trouble said: "run to granny, run to granny!"

So I ran to her. She knew my parents wouldn't rip me out of her arms. They didn't.

The time came to go home and it was all smiles...until I got in the car.

My mom and dad took turns beating on me the whole way home. lol

Needless to say I never "ran to granny" again.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Not a big Toby Keith fan but this song kept playing in my head. No, I did not write it. I am using it in this fun post. Never watched the video before until today.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

A funny thing happened today. I went to the store and got a few items including a 6 pack of my favorite wheat beer. I put the bags in my car and pushed the small carts to one of those "corral" areas.

I could have left a bag underneath but I don't remember seeing one.

Drove home. The way I drive it was only an 8-minute drive.

I started carrying the groceries in. No Beer.

Drove back to the grocery store.

The cashier said, "Did I overcharge you for something?" I said, "I didn't get my beer" as I clutched my receipt. She said to me, "go get some more if you want. Which bagger was it"

The kid that had been bagging groceries ran out the door and across the parking lot. He ran like a bear was after him. He went to a white car and opened the door. I walked out of the store to see what he was doing. My son was with me and said "daddy he has it he has it!!

The kid came carrying the wheat beer I enjoy so much across the parking lot and handed it to me saying "you forgot it in the bottom of your cart".

I teased the lad and said, "you were going to drink my beer weren't you?"

The boy replied, "what kind is that?"
I said, "it's a wheat beer."
He said, "well I don't like that kind".

I was glad to get it back but was curious why it was on the seat of his car and not back in the store where it should have been. lol

Once again not a big Toby Keith fan but I do like this song also and since I am talking about beer here is another bar song.

If you shut your eyes and listen to it it might make you think he is singing about some of your friends here at Steemit or on Discord.

Nobody messes with grandma, do they?

Maybe that kid had one of those refrigerautos. You know, those cars that become fridges when you're not in them?

·

Not sure the employee handbook says anything about stashing groceries in you your car.

Are you talking about a transformer type car that is a car but when the battle starts turns into a fridge full of beer so the other tranformers can have a drink after the battle.

·
·

Interesting. I hadn't considered a transformer. That adds a whole new element to this story.

But it's quite clear, this kid was stealing your beer. Sounds like a country song.

The young bagging lad was wearing a pin that read "RID" which I am guessing means: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE.

I am suprised it wasn't a 3 pack when I got it 8 minutes later lol.

Tonight I hit the Haiku jackpot!!

Yep.

Know that first song pretty well.

Happy birthday brother.

& PS.

This part of history they kinda left out, so don't worry about Neil, he's still having nightmares about having to pick the lock on that damn tin can!

·

LOL I should have put...For those of you that believed it really happened. lol

·

Hahahahaahaaaaa!

Well said!

Happy Birthday 🍻
The wonderful thing about hitting these big numbers is the stories that come with it and I loved your stories

Yes it is your birthday and I am throwing a Stevie at you

Wishing you an amazing one 😊

*PS: You threw me off with your fiction tag. But perhaps because of that Armstrong character 😉

·

It all is true. I got up to go to the fridge while it was posting and the fiction tag must have been entered in my absence. 🤔

·
·

Wonder how that happened?
Perhaps you were typing FreeWrite and it did an autocorrect on you ;p

·

I can honestly say....i have never hadva Stevie thrown at me before thank you.

·
·

Hey, it's your 50th!!!
Gotta do something special :D

·

The fiction tag could have been put there to appease the flat Earth readers. Ha

·
·

Now, that makes sense ;p

I HOPE YOU HAVE A LOVELY BIRTHDAY!!

·

You are so sweet thank you!!

Wowzers @veryspider you are awesome and a true blessing

So Toby Keith loves the bar but likes his girlfriend. He could take his girlfriend to the bar then. Enjoying a locally made cold crisp Apple cider when I posted this comment.
