35th President: John F Kennedy, 1961
Mail = 35 (Kennedy was the 35th president)
Kennedy (Space Center) = Kennedy
Beach hut = 961 = 1961 became president
John the Baptist, font = John F
As he went to collect his mail (35), the man who lived by the Kennedy Space Center (Kennedy) wondered why no one else had built a beach hut (961 = 1961) there.
Connect Kennedy to John F
At the Kennedy Space Center (Kennedy) one of the rockets was being baptised by John the Baptist (John), but he had trouble finding a Font (F) that was big enough!
NOTE: The way Mammoth Memory remembers John is to think of John the Baptist (the most famous John there is).
