    WOW, gotta love the grounding straps hanging from the front. Haven't seen those since the early 70's.

    Hey all you old Air Force guys. What are those birds flying overhead? My guess straight wing 84's
     
  9. LOL, I came across my first HAMB advertisement prior to logging in, "Boat Lift Distributor Since 1974". Not only is this ad off topic, it doesn't meet the HAMB's 1965 cut off. Just sayin.
    Keep the great posts coming guys.

    Somehow, the theme song to the Sound of Music sequel just didn't work well. "The desert's alive, with the sound of music..." didn't cut it.

    Judging by what I can see of the one behind the c-124, it sure looks like F-84s to me. :cool:

    The planes overhead look to be what we called T 33, I think they were called something else before that.

    Yep. F-84 Thunderjets. These are early ones, P-84Bs (later called F[ighter]-84B, as opposed to P[ursuit])

  26. NO WAY! That same guy is still standing on the porch, even to this day?

    Those crashed up cars make me feel ill. :( Old tin wrecks differently than our modern, today vehicles.

    I saw this pic on here a year or so ago and posted it on my facebook page. People went nuts over it and asked the obvious question, what is it. My stepdaughter googled the company name and came up with this.

    Notice how they cleared the gravel away from two spots so she could stand in bare feet? :D
     
  29. Yeah...Looks like the put a piece of plywood down and then covered it with the gravel. Gotta protect those tender feet.

    I don't think lazy, most of us over 60 didn't grow with the PC world and have to learn what to do.
