Nixon At Apollo 12 Launch

10  x  8  B/W  Glossy NASA Photograph

14 November 1969

A great shot of Nixon sitting in the centre, peering out through the crowd.  Look at the two blokes standing on the far left, that's Bruno 1 and 2. I think Bruno No. 2 is just about ready to thump the lad standing up in the foreground.

Frank Borman is saying a prayer and Dr. Thomas Paine, NASA Administrator, standing next to him has his eyes closed. I would have said a prayer too if I was standing next to ole Tricky Dicky, especially with a couple of bodyguards like Bruno 1 and 2 on the left.

And look at the young lady holding the umbrella for him, Whatever happened chivalry ? She is soaking wet.

Brolly Dolly Is Still Dripping Wet

10  x  8  B/W  Glossy NASA Photograph

14 November 1969

Well our little Brolly Dolly is still soaked to the bone as she hold the umbrella for Trick Dicky. She dare not let it down as Bruno 1 and 2 are standing next to her and will thump her if she lets it down.

Mrs Nixon seems more interested in the good Doctor Paine than she is in the launch and it looks like Bruno No. 2 sees this and is about to go over and thump him.

Mrs Nixon Looking For Dr Paine

NASA  No. 108-KSC-369-543/9

Here we are in Firing Room 2 just after the Apollo 12 lift off and Mrs Nixon is searching for the good Dr Paine. Little does she know but Bruno No. 2 has taken him outside for a little chat.

Hey .. Is that Kevin Costner standing in front of her ? She will probably chat him up if she can not find the good Dr Paine.

Nixon Meets the Astronauts

14 November 1969

Is that our James McDivitt with the headset ?

 Looks like Nixon and Jim Lovell are fast friends. Do you think it is because they use the same hair cream ?

Ahhh .. there is the good Dr Paine behind Nixon .. he is avoiding Mrs Nixon now .. I guess his little chat he had with Bruno No. 2 worked.

Nixon And The Good Doctor Paine

10  x  8  B/W  Glossy NASA Photograph

NASA No.   108-KSC-69P-664

Well Bruno No. 2 has told Nixon about Paine chatting up Mrs Nixon so we see the good doctor trying desperately to explain himself to get back in Nixon's good books.

Nixon Addresses The Control Room Staff

NASA No.   108-KSC-369-543

14 November 1969

Richard M Nixon in the Apollo 12 Firing Room No. 2 just after the launch. I think everyone is smiling because Nixon is announcing that there will be no more job losses this year and the current NASA budget is only going to be cut by 1/3 for the defence department and Vietnam.

Our NASA Administrator, Dr Paine, is just behind Nixon and looks like he is pleased with the news.

Hey .. is that Bruno 1 and 2 in the left foreground with their backs to us?  I do not think so .... shoulders are too small and they have necks.

Nixon Inspection Of The Ranks

10  x  8  B/W  Glossy NASA Photograph

NASA No.   108-KSC-369-545/5

14 November 1969

Richard M Nixon in the Apollo 12 Firing Room No. 2 just after the launch with Dr Thomas Paine, NASA Administrator,  leading the way.

Why isn't Dr Paine shaking hands with the chap that has his hand stretched out to him ? Perhaps the good doctor just saw the chap leaving the men's toilet without washing his hands.

See the chap in the centre, second row down from the top of all the peering little heads, he is holding his nose. I wonder what that means ?

Nixon Inspection Of The Ranks #2

14 November 1969

Richard M Nixon in the Apollo 12 Firing Room No. 2 just after the launch with Dr Thomas Paine, NASA Administrator, proudly leading the way and he's still is not shaking hands with anyone ?

See the chap standing behind the console on the right. He has his two hands planted on top of the console ... he was ordered to "assume the position" and is being searched by Bruno 1. The guy standing next to him is being searched by Bruno 2, and likes it !

Nixon Sings A Song

10  x  8  B/W  Glossy NASA Photograph

NASA No.   108-KSC-69P-852

14 November 1969

As we can see for the faces all around, every one is so pleased that Nixon is singing yet another round of Hail To The Chief which is naturally his favourite song. Bruno No. 2 is standing just behind the good Dr. Debus and is ready to thump anyone that laughs or does not appear to be paying attention to Nixon's serenade. Looks like he has his eye on Paul Donnelly as Paul looks like he is falling asleep. Thanks to Tom Stafford standing behind him as he keep nudging him to stay awake as he saw Bruno No. 2 eyeing him.

Nixon Leaving Apollo 12 Firing Room No. 2

10  x  8  B/W  Glossy NASA Photograph

NASA No.   108-KSC-369-543/7

14 November 1969

Richard M Nixon bids a fond farewell to the Apollo 12 Firing Room No. 2 after his inspection. He is the chap with his back to us that looks like he hasn't washed his hair for a week.

Our NASA Administrator, the good Dr Paine, is pleased to leave as he did not want to shake anyone's hand or is that smile now permanently fixed on his face from wearing it all day? He did have the pleasure of escorting Nixon all day and had a little tay-to-tay with Mrs Nixon !!. You would have thought Bruno No. 2 would have wiped that smile off his face when they went outside for their little chat.

See the chap just behind Dr Paine. You can only see his nose and forehead. That's Bruno 3, we haven't seen him before.

Nixon's Parking Place

10  x  8  B/W  Glossy NASA Photograph

NASA No.   71-H-1078

It time for Nixon to leave the Cape now. He's ready to board his helicopter that will take him back to his luxury yacht. But not before he give that poor chap a good telling off for letting that jet park in his parking spot. I guess this guy will be parking jets at the North Pole from now on. That big chap standing on the end is Bruno No. 3 and he is just waiting for the word from Nixon to thump him.

Nixon's Watching You !

10  x  8  B/W  Glossy NASA Photograph

Nixon back safely on his private luxury yacht just off the coast of Florida. Bruno 1, 2 , and 3 are hiding in the shadows behind Nixon. Nixon just gave the all engines stop order .. they were passing a private nudist beach. G. Gordon Liddy told him about it. Oh .. did I forget to mention that Bruno 1, 2 and 3 were Gordon Liddy's boys.
