July 20, 1969 Moonlanding

Charlie Norris was a go-fer at Keith's Model T in Winnemucca when the U.S. landed a man on the
moon on this day in 1969. He was so impressed he used it to design Keith's new 1969 gaming
token. He also filed a legal document at the Humboldt Co. courthouse claiming ownership of one
square mile of the moon around the American flag. I met Charlie when he was working as a shill
at TJ's Dirty Bird. We'd sit at the bar and talk while he drank a Miller High Life beer, adding salt
with each swallow. He had rigged his 1960 Ford with a carburetor he invented that he claimed
would get him to the California coast and back on half a tank of gas. He even took me on a run
to Golconda about 15 miles east of town. You can see his signature in the moonscape on Keith's
gaming token. Charlie Norris was a real character.
