two: refuse to go unless I was at least offered Chateau LaFitte 1970, caviar over truffels and duck eggs.

I think we all remember cumshaw, you know you give something to get something. In civilian life it;s called grand larceny. I recall when I was aboard the Seirra and running the photo lab I had been using my own 35mm camera to take photos and it was taking a beating. When i tried to order a 35mm camera through supply I was informed I was not allowed one. Soooo...... I had to make an end run around the red tape.

Here's what I had to do: First I located a "stash" of Nikon cameras at the… Continue

US Navy 2009, David Asche and I lit into this gal (Libral) obamanite, she got arrogant as hell. Caused me to blow a head gasket. Doug Karr started the blog she more or less caused us to blow it out of the water. Kinda reminded me of when I first joined NavyVets 2yrs ago when the elections started. She lit my fire for sure.

I hear ya Harry, yes sir you done good when you moved to Murfreesboro, Tenn. I welded pipe in Kingsport, Tenn. and we stayed in Elizebethton, for a year and half. I loved it up there, the wife didn't much care for the snow. Yea Brother I'll take the Blue Ridge Mountains any day. Man did David and I get that woman stirred up about obama or what?

Cumshaw ? When I was stationed in Rota Spain, we had boomers on both sides of us. And, as any molder knows, boat sailors are like crows - if it glitters, they want it. In the foundry I had six different sizes of DOLPHIN plaque patterns, and we always made sure that we had at least two of each size made, polished, and put away. I also had an oven in the shop for making cores, and a two gallon stainless steel pot, courtesy of my buddy in the tin benders hole. I've eaten many a bowl of stew made from canned rock lobster and all kinds of goodies, ALL compliments of the subs alongside. Cumshaw ? I know all about it.

Yep - I burn coal. I've got a .44 Remington (replica) a .50 mountail rifle, (almost worn out) a .40 flinter, a .58 Zouave, .69 flintlock horse pistol ( I'm leery about shooting it) , 5 pounds of powder, and damn near a ton of balls (ammo that is). I also have a Walther P-38 (9mm) a Hi-Point 9mm semi auto rifle, a Makarov .380, a Texas Defender .45/410 derringer (this is my "carry" gun) and a brand new Mossberg 505 410 pumpgun. Plus 1700 rounds of 9mm ammo. I figger that when the s*** pops, (and it WILL) I should be ready. Have a good day shipmate.

Molders were the kings of comshaw. Ship's plaques were a hot commodity for those fleet sailors,everyone wanted one and were practically willing to give anything to get them.
