The flowers left at the feet of our Neil Armstrong replica died last week and looked pretty yucky, so I asked my boss if I could bring in some artificial ones as a permanent memorial. The museum agreed and this weekend I put together a bouquet. The total cost was $2. I used the ribbon from the old flowers and bought the new flowers at the dollar store.
On a side note: I did a tour not long ago with a little girl (maybe in third grade) and when she saw this picture of the Original 7 astronauts, she proclaimed "they look brave!" Sometimes kids say exactly what we are all know or are thinking but don't say out loud!
