My Dad was Lt. Col Robert E Ingalls USAF when he retired. Just a shaved tail Lt. in the AAF when Robert D Ingalls was helping build the ALCAN Highway to Alaska. Dad was stationed in Anchorage, Alaska from 1956-59 and we drove the ALCAN back to the US in '59. Quite a coincidence!

Hello

Yes - very much a coincidence. There is still so much I was unable to include everything in the picture.

 

Thanks for asking

Don't you love the smell of that blast of 70+ year old air that hits you when you open it? Or is that just me? :wacko:

Great grouping! Way to go! :D

 

I love the smell of a musty basement before I start picking through it so I can relate.

 

I would always say "mold is money"

 

Very nice group.
