On the way to the Toledo RC show, we visited the Neil Armstrong Museum at Wapakoneta, Ohio. His home town. I was reminded of this story.
When Armstrong climbed down from the Lunar Lander he made his famous quote "One small step-------" his next phrase was "Good luck Mr. Orlorfsky". This was never explained until recently.
When Armstrong was an early teen he was playing outside one summer evening and he overheard his neighbors talking loudly. Mrs Orlorfsky was saying "You'll get sex Fred, when that NEIGHBOR KID, walks on the moon"
When Orlorfsky died, Neil Armstrong was finally able to explain his phrase.
