    "Good Luck Mr. Gorsky"...the rest of the story!!

    "Good Luck Mr. Gorsky"
    IN CASE YOU DIDN'T ALREADY KNOW THIS LITTLE TIDBIT OF TRIVIA....
    ON JULY 20, 1969, AS COMMANDER OF THE APOLLO 11 LUNAR MODULE, NEIL
    ARMSTRONG WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SET FOOT ON THE MOON.

    HIS FIRST WORDS AFTER STEPPING ON THE MOON, "THAT'S ONE SMALL STEP FOR
    MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND," WERE TELEVISED TO EARTH AND
    HEARD BY MILLIONS.*

    BUT JUST BEFORE HE RE-ENTERED THE LANDER, HE MADE THE ENIGMATIC
    REMARK - "GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY."

    MANY PEOPLE AT NASA THOUGHT IT WAS A CASUAL REMARK CONCERNING SOME
    RIVAL SOVIET COSMONAUT. HOWEVER, UPON CHECKING, THERE WAS NO GORSKY IN
    EITHER THE RUSSIAN OR AMERICAN SPACE PROGRAMS .

    OVER THE YEARS, MANY PEOPLE QUESTIONED ARMSTRONG AS TO WHAT THE
    'GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY' STATEMENT MEANT, BUT ARMSTRONG ALWAYS JUST
    SMILED.

    ON JULY 5, 1995, IN TAMPA BAY , FLORIDA , WHILE ANSWERING QUESTIONS
    FOLLOWING A SPEECH, A REPORTER BROUGHT UP THE 26-YEAR-OLD QUESTION
    ABOUT Mr Gorsky TO ARMSTRONG.

    THIS TIME HE FINALLY RESPONDED, BECAUSE MR. GORSKY HAD DIED.
    SO NEILARMSTRONG FELT HE COULD NOW ANSWER THE QUESTION.
    HERE IS THE ANSWER TO "WHO WAS MR GORSKY":

    IN 1938, WHEN HE WAS A KID IN A SMALL MID-WESTERN TOWN , HE WAS
    PLAYING BASEBALL WITH A FRIEND IN THE BACKYARD. HIS FRIEND HIT THE
    BALL, WHICH LANDED IN HIS NEIGHBOR'S YARD BY THEIR BEDROOM WINDOW.
    HIS NEIGHBORS WERE MR. AND MRS. GORSKY. AS HE LEANED DOWN TO PICK
    UP THE BALL, YOUNG ARMSTRONG HEARD MRS. GORSKY SHOUTING AT MR.
    GORSKY,

    "SEX! YOU WANT SEX?! YOU'LL GET SEX WHEN THE KID NEXT DOOR WALKS ON THE
    MOON!"

    It broke the place up.

    NEIL ARMSTRONG'S FAMILY CONFIRMED THIS IS A TRUE STORY.
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    I remember seeing an interview with Neil Armstrong about a year ago. He told this story! What a great sense of humor!
