I just took my family to visit the Space Needle yesterday on our way home from a vacation in Victoria.

I was 13 when my family visited the worlds fair. One of my most vivid memories was when I climbed up on one of the big footings for the space needle (the ones with several large nuts). I was sitting there resting, and after awhile a large throng of people was passing by. Then in the middle of it all was Elvis riding on a tram with several other people (they were there to film the movie). They passed just a few feet in front of me, so I had a very good view from my vantage point on the Space Needle footing.

My youngest daughter is just turned 13. Yesterday I sat her up on the same footing I sat on nearly 50 years ago, and I took her picture. Now that memory is even more pleasant. :-)
