  6. Another funny picture. Curtis is my grandfather, he was around 5 years old and his teacher sent this note home around 1905. Besides the signature, it's also very funny that my grandfather's last name is Robertson, not Robinson lol

  10. Since we're telling Lawyer Jokes today A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from LA to NY. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game? The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He explains, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vice versa. " Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00." This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game. The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill and hands it to the lawyer. "Okay" says the lawyer, "your turn." She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?" The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references, no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the net and the library of congress, no answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and coworkers, to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the blonde, and hands her $500.00. The blonde says, "Thank you," and turns back to get some more sleep. The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?" Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep. And you thought blondes were dumb.

  13. or alternate title: Sometimes A Cigar Is Just A Cigar
  14. Yeah, they are, when I see a recent photo of one it makes me kind of wish I was still on one.
  15. Thanks for the info. This huge ships are fascinating.
  16. Here's a joke ElusiveButterfly sent me: BEST LAWYER STORY OF THE YEAR. This actually took place in Charlotte, North Carolina. A lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured them against, among other things, Fire. Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars, the lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost 'in a series of small fires.' The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason, that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion. The lawyer sued and WON! Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. The judge stated nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from the company, in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is considered to be unacceptable 'fire' and was obligated to pay the claim. Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the lawyer for his loss of the cigars that perished in the 'fires'. NOW FOR THE BEST PART... After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON! With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine. This true story won First Place in last year's Criminal Lawyers Award contest. ONLY IN AMERICA . . . NO WONDER THE REST OF THE WORLD THINKS WE'RE NUTS.
  17. For Comparison, here are some specs from the USS America, my first carrier. This was a huge carrier in her day, but note the Displacement variance between America and Ford. As time passes and Aircraft become larger and faster, carriers become longer, wider and heavier.
  18. Koach, here are some of the specs for the Ford.
  19. NO, my uncle was on that ship at one point. the ones I was on were much larger. I've posted some specs below for comparison. Also I have the dates wrong, I was going by what someone else told me, that picture was after 1955, that's when the angled flight deck was added, sorry.
  20. Koach based on this photo of the USS Ford I would say close to a full third of the ships total height from flight deck to keel.
  21. I always thought Nan was missing a few roos from the top paddock. Looks like that's one lol
  22. Dawn, are you also working on your family genealogy? Photos like the one you posted are great records of family history.
  23. lol, hard to believe it is that old, yet modern looking at the same time. I wonder what percentage of the ship is submerged.
  24. LOL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
