The Original Ranch, Lakewood, New Mexico 68 degrees (for a short time) and mostly sunny to 97 degrees and sunny.

July 20, 1969 Bonnie and I were living in Titusville, Florida with me working for Grumman Aircraft Engineering Co. Builders of and launching the Lunar Module that landed on the moon. I was working for the ground support department operating and maintaining equipment used in loading propellants, liquid oxygen, helium, and water into the spacecraft.
Six machine drain manifold
Vern and I completed two assemblies of the drain manifold now only the final two needed inside the building is at the tee fitting. We will complete that Monday morning. Neil connected the three inch return pipe to the grey water tank and cut the hole into the building for the overflow grey water. Richard and I started the cold water pipe but only to take up space so that a two inch drain can be set in for the seventh machine which will be fore pet bedding. That drain will join with the overflow drain and go the the septic tank.

At four o'clock Bonnie and I went to happy hour at the ranch house. And after dinner we went into Carlsbad for a bolt and washer for the big awning arm that attaches to the awning drum.
