Astro Buddy Gary Carter

Gary Carter is an Astro Buddy I hung out with in the 1980s in Dallas, TX. We worked together at Rockwell in Richardson, TX. We used to go to his house in the country near Sherman, TX to observe.

One night we were together, giving an astronomy lesson to Girls Scouts at a camp. They set us up in a field. After dark, I had this horse nibbling on the wooden mount of my telescope. Bad Horse!!!
