Almost 20 years ago, I met a very old guy at my modeling club, I chatted a little with him, we were discussing the advantages of plywood over other wood.

The guy told me he used to work at a factory in Belgium when the Nazi's invaded our country, that factory was one of the first producing plywood over here, and when he joined Britain in May 1940 to fight against the Nazi's, as the British recruiting officer saw his CV, he was directly sent to De Havilland to work on the Mossie prototype.

He died a few months later, I felt sorry for not having had more conversations with him.

Cool story. I've met similar people that over time I wish I had spent more time with or kept in touch with them.

Near the end of my first marriage a buddy took me to a B.B. King concert to cheer me up. We went to the bar beside the theater for an hour or two before the show. Surprisingly, they were selling beer in the lobby of the theater when we got there and I had one in each hand and pocket. Then we went back to the bar after the show.

A week later I saw "a councilor" in conjunction with my marriage woes and she asked if I drank. I told her only socially. She then asked how much and I was stumped for an answer so she said, "just tell my how much you drank the last time." :doh

I'm afraid I didn't make such a good impression. :p

How about a REAL photo of The Duke on a motorcycle?

http://cdn.silodrome.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/John-Wayne-Motorcycle.jpg

Honda SL 350. Looks about a 1970. I'm pretty sure this was during the filming of Big Jake in 1971. Here's a screen shot showing the same hat, kerchief tie and suspenders. All other movies I'm aware of he tied his neckerchief on the side or in back and even in the Rooster Cogburn films, wore a newer appearing hat.

http://i.ytimg.com/vi/RdQbsa5E4ZQ/maxresdefault.jpg

If you're a fan, you'll remember there was a motorcycle in that movie! A Montessa disguised to appear like a (approx.) 1910 Harley-Davidson.
http://i792.photobucket.com/albums/yy204/dablaze919/imagejpg1-3.jpg
Some of the footage of the bike was also obviously taken from a following bike. The one the Duke is riding above has mounts for some type movie making apparatus in place of the headlight, at the bottom of the frame tubes and on the rear fender.

Okay... my apologies for the hijack. :o

My first ship, The USS Fletcher DD992 was sunk as target practice a while ago by the Australian Navy north east of Kauai. I loved that ship. Massive speed boat she was. 32.5 knots listed as the top speed. Of course that is the "unclassified" top speed and she did _much_ more than that.

My Dad was on the Helena, a cruiser, when it was sunk by a Japanese torpedo during WW2. He spent about 8 hours in the water and was picked up by the Radford, a destroyer. My middle name is Radford. The Radford served clear up and into the Vietnam years. I believe that Helena was at Pearl Harbor during the Japanese attack and was damaged and repaired only to be sunk in 1944.

I might have liked the Fresno better if I got to see some of the world on her. I was right out of boot camp and eager to see the world. The day I checked onboard, before i even put my seabag down I asked the officer of the deck when is the next time we would get underway. His answer was something to the effect of "day after tomorrow we will get underway go around the end of the peer and into the dry dock" So I spent the next few months on a ship with no water under her chipping paint and tile until I recieved orders to HM "A" School.

Thanks for sharing this. I saw a similar situation in person several years ago and it still affects me. While I was doing Wreaths Across America in 2012 I saw a young woman on the ground hugging a tombstone. I so wanted to go up to her and say something but I did not think I would be able to speak at the moment and even if I could have I would not have known what to say. That is a sight I will never forget and I echo jzink's comments.

Saw one at a collection in Oxnard, ca. Really nice piece.

Asked about why they didn't continue? Seems the pistol that was used to shoot President McKinley in 1901 was an Iver Johnson :wonderlan

See...now my curiosity was peeked and had to go find some info.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gr%C3%BCner_See_(Styria)


Grüner See (Green Lake) is a lake in Styria, Austria in a village named Tragöß. The lake is surrounded by the Hochschwab mountains and forests.[1] The name "Green Lake" originated because of its emerald-green water.[1] The clean and clear water comes from the snowmelt from the karst mountains and has a temperature of 6–7 °C (43–45 °F).[1] During the winter, the lake is only 1–2 m deep and the surrounding area is used as a county park.[2] However, during the spring, when the temperature rises and the snow melts, the basin of land below the mountains fills with water.[2] The lake reaches its maximum depth of around 12 m from mid-May to June and is claimed to look the most beautiful at this time.[1] In July, the water begins to recede.[2]

The lake supports a variety of fauna such as snails, water fleas (Daphnia pulex), small crabs, fly larvae, and different species of trout (Salmo).[1] The flora is not abundant because of the rocky bottom of the lake.[1] Furthermore, the lake’s depth is variable since its inflow comes from snowmelt.[1]

The lake is popular among divers who can observe the green meadows in the edge zone of the lake particularly in June when the water is at its highest.[1][2] A bridge and a bench can also be found underwater.[1] Furthermore, trails and trees can also be seen underwater.[3]
