  1. So, this has changed to something more than another anti-gravity device !
  2. I can't believe that it's been 8 DAYS since I wrote that great provoking note, & I'm just now getting these weak replies ! My disappointment is probably just as funny. Still can't believe you mil. gu...
  3. Babies of future broken homes ? Babies are too young to read that & we can't even understand it ! LOL !!
  4. LOL ! Have you figured out exactly what it is/was ?
  5. A Bell 47 was my 1st & only experience flying helicopters. I grabbed the cyclic & lesson 1 was learned. Do Not Grab the Cyclic ! We were all over the sky ! Thumb & 2 fingers is all that's needed !
  6. An impression of a body that hit the ground ! Guess it's better than burning.
  7. I called the museum & they say it is a Piper Cub L-6
  8. Thanks Gary for the youtube. Can't remember the last time I was in a J-3. They're great if you want to ID the gender of birds ! Still have to Luv them.
  9. Gary, the L-19 Bird dog was a Cessna designed following the 170 (flown those) & both were metal skinned. The Pipers are "rag-wing" & the one shown appears to be that. Had a barnstormer that I kept pe...
  10. That's not the standard Cessna L-19/01, but looks like maybe a Piper PA-18 version. The Link trainer is a weird feeling to "fly" ! I met Ed Link on several occasions at meets. Would luv to see this mu...
  11. I already had my doubts about the radiator for some reason. Are those bullet deflectors on the prop. ? Does that Lycoming fall under the new note coming out requiring replacing cylinders ?
  12. What design is this ? So many home-builts look alike. Also wondering about the eng. since it it water cooled.
  13. What a rare find (I guess) ! Well, I've never heard of "Arrow Beer" ! That alone means it's rare.
  14. Bask in it Kerry ! You dun good ! I'll send Whacky around to give you a kiss on the cheek later. Cheers por l'nuit!
  15. Thanks CameoJan ! I had to get a drool rag out tonite to keep from shorting out my keyboard ! Have you ever noticed that noses on cameos are almost always straight with the forehead. I wonder if tha...
  16. I'm a type 2 diabetic, but would luv it for stevia !
  17. I have always loved & admired the work put into shell cameos.
  18. Overheard: "We know whatever Hillary does will be wrong, but maybe by accident, Trump will do something right".
  19. For setting the teeth angle on saws.
  20. Great design & detail plus finely selected grain wood.
  21. Your expectations here from one poorly lite pic. is truly optimistic. Many Southern militia uniforms were union blue before the War also. The buttons will probably be the identifying thing. You are al...
  22. Real Gilligan's Island style ! Would be a great eye catcher here in St. Maarten.
  23. The black lite has always been the "proof in the pudding" test as I've always known. Just looked up rayon & see no reason that it wasn't slipping into the Reich war industry before the end of the war....
  24. "-- the SS pattern was devised in 1933/34 ---". Before that, the deaths head was loosely patterned from the Prussian design. This could be a very early pennant, but still reminds me of what we see her...
  25. Taught me something there. Hope an answer is found because this is just not close to the normal SS pattern.
  26. Thank you EJW ! I'm going to sleep right now.
  27. This is a new one to me !
  28. Thanks for ruining my nite's sleep. LOL !! Sure hope somebody knows before I lose too much sleep !
  29. Yes Thomas, I'm here !
  30. WOW ! What a great early collection.
  31. Let's see what others with expertise say. Fast aging of brass is easy, even without harming the cloth. What do you think the cloth is ?
  32. That's probably right Kerry.
  33. I've come back because the style of the skull just isn't right for SS & looks too much like a typical current pirate rendition.
  34. I don't know exactly what to think of this. Surely post War For Southern Independence. The rectangular instead of square flag adds to my confusion. I can't even think of a reasonable theory.
  35. Try a black lite on it & tell us if anything glows.
  36. I'm aware Pease that the UK did & if you read my comment, only 1 country is mentioned, and it isn't the UK. What point do you not understand ?
  37. The United States is the MAIN OFFENDER & almost the only one ! Start your campaign at home.
  38. Oops: "It flew too low----"
  39. Eureka ! I flew to low over a paint ball park !
  40. I can live with that arrangement, Trey !
  41. Girl,"I was just pointing at it because it's so beautiful!". LOL !!
  42. I've seen that expression many times. At the moment the spear goes thru ! LOL ! Supper !
  43. It has a bewildered expression.
  44. If this isn't done with smoke & mirrors, you have a real winner worthy of 18th cent. Versailles. Would really like to see the drawer joints & construction.
  45. When you say "creek settlements", you are referring to the Creek Indians, part of the Cherokee Tribe ? Just thought it might be helpful to those who aren't familiar with Amer. Indian tribes & locatio...
  46. Could be for the valves on oxy-acetelyne tanks. Best I can come up with right away.
  47. I found an old kerosene fridge in one of my out building when I lived on St. Eustatius, NA. Cleaned it a bit & fired it up & it worked fine. Cold beer for hurricanes when the power is off ! Wish I had...
  48. A real craftsman !
  49. It's not a river, so it must be a flint ! LOL !
  50. Flint can be found in nodules that look like this.
