LBJ Library

We've spent a lot of time in Austin, because that's where Coach Connect is and we do occasional work for them. We were here for almost 2 months last year and never got around to seeing the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library. So, we got settled into our favorite RV park here - Oak Forest - and vowed to go to the library before going to the office. It was a gorgeous day. The LBJ library is on the campus of University of Texas. One of my earliest memories. Johnson was put in charge of the moon project by JFK. He continued throughout his own presidency, then the landing actually occurred shortly after he left office. Here is a piece of moon rock on display. And, of course, the oval office. Then there was this cute exhibit of an audioanimatronic LBJ telling jokes.
