    I enjoy chatting on, hunting, playing Poker, traveling and camping, shooting targets.
    I live in Alpine, Texas the Gateway to the Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch.
    Texas is the only state that was a Republic before joining the Union, we are also the only state that has the right to fly our flag at the same height as the US flag.
    Texas is home to many professional sports teams, NFL has the Houston Texans and the Dallas Cowboys, Baseball has the Houston Astro's and the Texas Rangers, Basketball has the Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio also have professional Soccer teams, although I claim ignorance of their names, as well as of the names of the Ice Hockey teams in the state, so if anyone wants to clue me in, I'd appreciate it.
  1. LOL, sneaky little bugger.
  2. WOW, nice mocs.
  3. 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.
  4. Armed Forces Day in the US is celebrated on the third Saturday in May, My 20th in 2017
  5. LOL
  6. Yeah, they are, when I see a recent photo of one it makes me kind of wish I was still on one.
  7. 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.
  8. Koach, here are some of the specs for the Ford.
  9. 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.
  10. Just hope it ain't this one:
  11. What do you mean "were" I still am.
  12. LOL
  13. LOL In the 70s, I mostly wore a pair of boots like these for casual dress
