New revenue source

So Me and Uncle Sam were going back and forth about what they owed me.   Seems they left out Three (3) years worth of time (points for you none military types) and I had to go back through 26 years worth of orders and Drill sheets to submit for verification.   Got my first check today.   The really neat part.   15 months worth of back pay should be here in the next 60-90 days.    The mind boggles at the possibilities.  

Anybody wanna go halves?

Rutger Hauer

passed.  His part in Blade Runner was probably the single most intense scene in a a whole movie of intense scenes.  God Speed Sir.  May you see the Glitter in the Stars again.

6 June 1944

I jumped Normandy 2000, 2001 and was Ground Committee in '04.   Doc Grounded me, no more jumps but when I heard they had 22 Daks and over 200 jumpers I was cursing and kickin for a bit.    What I would give to do it just one more time.   Here is a 97 YO vet who did get to do it one more time.
