In my memory, it was 50 years ago tonight that Dad carried me out to the car to drive to Grandma and Grandpa's house in Salinas where our family would watch tomorrow's Apollo 11 moon landing together. As we walked out under a beautiful night sky, Dad said "They're almost there," and I tried to spot that tiny capsule carrying Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Mike Collins on their adventure to that beautiful, bright moon! In this wonderful Google Doodle, Mike Collins recounts his experience.

As for Dawn and Hugo, we're all part of humankind, no matter what language we read Notre-Dame de Paris in (Yes, that's the original French title).

We can learn from each other - or, rather, I have taught you a valuable lesson. Now I'll have another Coca-Cola, please.

"I'm leaving and going someplace where I can get some Freedom Fries."

His 'host family' must really love this guy.

It is sad for us Americans because we have no culture. Our landmarks are all damaged. We are sad.

Oh, you Europeans, and your overt sexual advances. Even if you are just trying to recover from showing your French arrogance. Dude, you're eating a fried ham and cheese sandwich at the mall. Scale it back a bit.

I'll paint my host family's house?? What is he, some sort of super French house painter?? What an idiot... unless, of course, he intends to paint it like this:

“Je parle anglais, Dawn, je vais donc traduire tout ce que je dis pour vous.  I speak English, Dawn, so I will translate everything I say for you. “

Now don't get discouraged. See it through. I'm sure Karen Moy has written a wonderfully original and clever story, full of plot twists, humor and warmth. You don't know it yet, but this could be your favorite Mary Worth story of all time. How can you not adore a French foreign exchange student who speaks half English half French, kisses strangers' hands, and hangs out at the mall? He loves classic literature and his parents named him after the great French writer, Victor Hugo. I'm sure this story will rank right up there with The Count of Monte Cristo and Les Miserables.

“No, my mistake. I thought you were Wilbur Weston. You’re just like him.”

And there it is. Love is born with an Ow and an Oof. I'm sure this guy will be charmed by her utter lack of ambition until he dumps her this fall.

Remember two years ago when Dawn worked a summer job and ended up having an almost-affair with her married boss? I don't blame her for not wanting a summer job anymore.
