Remember those analog wrist watches we were issued? Strangely enough I still have mine. The radium spots on the dial must drive the airport scanners NUTS!

I donated my Seiko (involuntarily) to some Cowboys ....my little green one with the nylon strap is ... ???? (they're in-style now) ... still wear my Randolf Engineering issued frames, (or at least a modern replacement) , tho prescription has changed a bit..

If I managed to guess the right day (its no longer in your profile) . then :applaud::applaud::birthday::birthday:

I'd buy you a 33 or two if Montana were a little closer ;)

did I ever mention that they gave me an invitation to Canoe U , but I just couldn't commit to 4 extra. ??

for those members unable to completely follow the posts:
L-71 & I were taught an obscure language by our shared benevolent uncle*.;)


I only know 1 percent (or less ?) of Loach71's story , but that is enough to put
him om my "10 most respected LHF members" list (for whatever that's worth)

Geeze...really . I'm sitting in my rocking chair listening to tunes,
and he's working on a PhD* (and he's slightly older than me, and I'm older than dirt) :blink:



*PhD = post hole digger ??? (I can joke abt that since Dad & Unk had one
and my son will be starting on his next year)

R&R's ??? Tokyo , HK , Taipei and Bangkok and 30 day basket in ....(drum roll plse ) ..........
Salem, Oregon.:eek: :barf:


* Tim was with the Big Green Machine while I joined the Canoe Club ...but we both wore the same snazzy clothes ( he had more shiny jewelry tho )

The "shiny jewelery" just made me a better target for those "evil-nasties" with the Soviet / Chicom .51 caliber DSKH heavy machine guns. When the tracers look as big as beach balls you know you are living on the edge...:eek:

PhD = piled higher and deeper...

I'm in the planning stage right now, but if I think that the ankle will hold out ,
this (or one like it) may be in the semi-near future
