Astronaut Buzz Aldrin signs books at Louis Vuitton, Houston. (Photo: Tall Husband)
Two history teachers pose with Buzz Aldrin, as Tall Husband snaps their photo with their phone camera and I focus on their momentous occasion with my trusty Nikon.
Flying saucers? Moon Pies? No...just some French macarons that Louis Vuitton had flown in from Paris.
Last night, Anne Breux, a French Designer working in Houston, told us about Buzz Aldrin's scheduled appearance at Louis Vuitton here in the city. So off we went today to buy his book, Magnificent Desolation, and to meet the legend himself. We were totally charmed.
All of Houston has gone wild, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing. Some of us are old enough to remember where we were when Apollo 11 landed on the moon...I was living on a U.S. Air Force Base just outside Lincoln, Nebraska.
Thank you, Buzz, for the beautiful ride.
Interesting coincidence: at one of Anne and Jean-Louis Breux's parties, we met French Astronaut Michel Tognini and his charming wife.
