Loyal Readers agree. Here’s some of our best stuff from 2012.
My daughter says the coolest things. When I tell friends and family, they frequently say “Really? She said that?” This time I got it on tape. Enjoy and leave comments.
Do you ever wonder where your poop goes when you go on an airplane? In the good old days it went “out”. Dumped in mid air. After more than a few people being bombed by frozen poop, the airlines decided to keep it. So the next time you’re boarding, please note that someone is under the aircraft emptying the shitter.
Have you ever read “Skippy’s List”? Also known as “213 Things that Skippy is no Longer Allowed to do in the Army”. Not to be out done, I began “Chippie’s List” a while back. 111 things (and counting) that we did in the 313th Aircraft Maintenance Unit, Hahn AB, Germany. Things that really should not have happened. Every word is true. The names have NOT been changed to protect the innocent.
The last known photograph taken of Titanic as she departs Queenstown.
On April 10, 1912, the Royal Mail Ship Titanic set sail from Southampton on her maiden voyage. At 11:40 PM on April 14, 1912, she struck an iceberg about 400 miles off Newfoundland, Canada. She sank under the waves at 2:20 AM. Only 705 people were rescued; 1523 drowned or froze to death in the icy water. However, Five dogs and a pig were saved.
Dad with a water cooled Browning. Hawaii 1941.
My Dad was Walter J. Chamberlain Jr. He served in the Army from 1937 until 1967.
I’ve been doing this Internet thing for a long time. The body of work is approaching huge. Many is the time someone will send something to me saying, “Check this out. It’s COOL!” and I’ll say, “Yeah, I made that (picture,page,video).” But then every now and then something REALLY cool happens. Like finding out the Vice-President likes my picture.
I GOT A LINK ON LATEENOUGH.COM!!!! Some some unknown inner reason, I’ve taken to Photoshopping for friends. This post of Al’s inspired my muse and this picture popped out. It appeared on this post. Way down at the bottom there is a teeny tiny link to this little blog. WOOT!! And a Big,Giant Thank You AL.
Again. Had the bottoms taken out in about ’96. They grew back. The dentists gave weird looks on that one. But I saw the xrays of both sets. HELD all four teeth in my hand. But here’s the weirder part…. My left bottom one had a filling and I don’t remember EVER getting a filling.
So you’re glued to the screen watching swimming and women’s gymnastics. Soccer is boring and you wonder why football isn’t an Olympic sport. Here are some Odd Facts that might liven up your Olympic viewing.
Ever get to fly in an F-16 fighter? I have. Many of my friends have. Sometimes I forget that everyone doesn’t get to do this. Savannah Guthrie of the Today Show got a ride. From her big brother no less. LtCol Camron “Arlo” Guthrie is assigned to the 158th Fighter Wing of the Vermont Air National Guard. The Green Mountain Boys. For the record. I got two rides.
What do you think?
Eight years ago, my oldest son Brian made the smartest decision in his life. He married Abby. Abby’s Story is a really good post her on her Blog. A beautiful story that will bring out the tissues. This is a story about what she didn’t see.
It has come to my attention that I sometimes scream at the TV. Especially during Football games. To allay concerns of family and friends I humbly offer some of my Football Lingo.
Halloween is a Family Holiday. Pumpkin carving and decorations. Costumes and Trick or Treating. Our family is a little different.
