Just wanted to see this again. The Gemini IV homies go rodeo. Oh Ed.

For some reason, when I read the caption “Goodwill trip,” I immediately pictured Borman going thrift store shopping and looking for jeans.
Every Goodwill trip is Pete’s idea. Every weekend he’s like, “Come on guys, I wanna go try on hats.”

Oh wow, I love this so much!
