  1. Oh that was a terrible joke. I love it!
  2. Thanks! I now have the word "shabraque" added to my vocabulary. My new thing learned for the day. Think I will take a well earned nap the rest of the day.
  3. Just about my favorite band. Amazing that you know them. Echoing Kat , your autobiography would be incredible. Who should play you in the movie?
  4. Oh man, that is sad. I grew up in Utica and remember shopping in that mall and enjoying the history of the place. My grandfather worked there for Savage during the war. Mikie
  5. That is just awesome! One of your best Then, Then and Nows ever, due to your personal touch .
  6. Reminds me of The Venetian Casino in Vegas. Being outside while inside. It can get a bit disorienting wandering around there for a while. But then Vegas does that to a person. Mikie
  7. Sorry, this is't a postcard, but I like to contribute here when I can. Which is sadly not very often. This Liberty Loan medallion has been on my key chain for years and years. from what I've been able to find out, these medallions were issued for the 5th Liberty Loan in 1919 and are made from German cannon captured by American troops at Château-Thierry.

  8. In an uncertain world, it's nice to know there is one good thing we can count on....MORE CARDS! Keep 'em coming! Mikie
  9. We have our own bit of war related cement nautical history here in California. Santa Cruz and the SS Palo Alto are about 30 or so miles south of here. Here is some info on the ship you may enjoy. https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/ss-palo-alto and this if you prefer not reading...
  10. That's a new vehicle for me to see. Sorry you never ended up with one of these trucks. But thank you for preserving all these manuals and contributing them to my never ending edumacation. Mikie
  11. With all that mud and water all over the place, seems like Ike should tuck his pants into a set of those boots.
  12. That has to be a tough manual to find. Just a thought, but maybe the Change no. 3 refers to changes in the manual?
  13. It seems very few things ever turn out to be as straight forward as they first seem.
  14. Big stars, bug...ummm...heart?
  15. I've only seen one or two of them. I'll need to check it out. Mikie
  16. That's an impressive resume! Wow! He worked on Blake's 7! By current standards, a pretty cheesy show, but I love it. Not sure if in spite of or because of the cheese. Avon and Vila are one of the coolest duos in Scifi.
  17. Strange constellation there. Probably not a good idea to wear that too close to the front lines. Any legitimate helmet to a 3-star general would be out of my budget, so I wouldn't consider buying it. Any info on the helmet? Mikie
  18. Or a nice little fixer upper project.
  19. Oh a perfect ornament for my front lawn.
  20. Everything is gone. The last bunch was picked up yesterday. In the past I've grabbed odd bits of furniture, tools, etc. But nothing at all this time. And never anything military so far. As for the cars, nah, I drive a 12 year old Prius with 120000+ miles on it. Hard to upgrade that. Thanks for all the great find stories. You can bet I'll keep looking! Mikie
  21. Wow! That's an amazing find. But I think the landing process needed a little work. Mikie
  22. I took some pics of some cards I spotted at an antique store on Sunday, but they came out blurry. I'll need to go back and try again.
  23. Nice. What is your connection to the 27th Infantry division? My Dad served in the 106th Regiment from 1940 till the end of the war. That's him in my profile pic. Mikie
