    Need you down here Carl.

    Started to work on a church bench today. Have not made a decision on weather to use White Oak, Western Red Cedar or Teak for the wood. The bench will be outside 24X7X365.

    Teak would be $$$. Most of those that I've seen have used white oak

    I was going to try and say something witty but Jim beat me to it. :D



    Welcome to the 60+ crowd and to TW. Post up a few pics of your Tacoma. Oh, and drinks are in the cooler to your right.

    So you're saying that the chief was trying to throw his rank around, but was overruled by an Admiral! :rofl:
    Welcome ElderP! You've found an interesting group to BS with! Guess everyone is starting to wonder what us old timers, (and one young lady), are
    up to. Lots of good stuff. ENJOY!

    All these Naval Nautical terms has this Army Pukes head rollin. ;)

    Contrary to a lot of uninformed persons the MOH was not just given to everyone in the Vietnam conflict. Recipients earned every one of them through unselfish acts of valor far above the call of duty.

    That is why I like this thread Capt. So many of us are vets and we represent all branches of the service.

    Anyone know anything about the Air Force Aid Society, good or bad?

    Our Rectors father passed away last week and we wanted to donate to a worthwhile charity in his memory.

    He was a WW2 vet and flew bombing missions over Germany out of England. He is eligible for burial in Arlington but choose to be buried in the Veterans Cemetery in Albuquerque, NM.
