Oh, good people, here is your blogger, happy–oh so happy– (is she perhaps delirious?) at the Air & Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center, home of The Very Isolation Chamber Where the Apollo 11 Astronauts Were Quarantined Upon Their Return to Earth!!!
It’s one of those god-awful self-portrait numbers, certain to make one appear ready for, say, an isolation chamber.
But dang. What a happy girl!
For a similar portrait, featuring Richard Nixon himself in roughly my location here, Check This Out! (You’ll see Armstrong on the left, Collins in the center, and Aldrin on the right.)
In my bag at the time this delightful image was captured: the remarkable Carrying the Fire: An Astronaut’s Journeys by Michael Collins. (I had a bus ride, followed by a shuttle bus ride, to get there, and then a shuttle bus, bus, and subway ride to get back. Can you imagine such a haul without a book? [breaks out in hives at mere thought])
