Womens beach volleyball is a great spectator sport,  I haven't tried to learn to keep score yet though

OM45GE - Posted - 06/28/2016:  08:25:23


They keep score? I hadn't noticed.

dat - Posted - 06/28/2016:  09:50:54


I think it has to do with how many times they straighten their bikinies

DeanT - Posted - 06/28/2016:  10:49:29


if they painted them on, they wouldn't have to keep adjusting them

OM45GE - Posted - 06/28/2016:  11:42:12


We need to leave a little to the imagination.

dat - Posted - 06/28/2016:  13:19:48


that's what the paint is for

OM45GE - Posted - 06/28/2016:  16:18:12


Imagine that!

DeanT - Posted - 06/28/2016:  17:43:15


what if it rains?

dmiller - Posted - 06/28/2016:  19:09:06


Use oil based paint?  

OM45GE - Posted - 06/29/2016:  02:50:24


I knew a woman back in the early 90's who played beach volleyball. She was also a USAF fighter pilot and weapons system engineer who said she would have to kill me if she told me what she was working on. She also happened to be very attractive. 

DeanT - Posted - 06/29/2016:  04:40:40


probably working on early drones

OM45GE - Posted - 06/29/2016:  05:16:08


I know it pissed her off that she couldn't join a combat squadron. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/29/2016:  07:31:12


She'd be an interesting date

DeanT - Posted - 06/29/2016:  10:11:42


The female pilots were a tough breed. 

OM45GE - Posted - 06/29/2016:  10:30:33


Her sister worked for me and loved to regale us with stories about her exploits.

DeanT - Posted - 06/29/2016:  17:38:36


Isn't there a female Thunderbird now?

dmiller - Posted - 06/29/2016:  17:47:54




Give them a place to hang their purse - - they'll do anything.  big

That's awesome! She's cute too

OM45GE - Posted - 06/30/2016:  05:16:04


She is indeed. Nice story too. You have to admire someone who sets a life goal as a young child and makes it happen.

DeanT - Posted - 06/30/2016:  08:41:53


I actually kind of did the same thing (only I'm not a cute woman). I saw the Blue Angels at an air show as a little kid, and wanted to work on airplanes ever since. Now I'm retired, and never worked a day in my life, because working on Air Force jets was like a hobby on steroids.

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/30/2016:  08:47:24


It's great if you can work in a field you're passionate about.

dat - Posted - 06/30/2016:  10:35:10


I haven't figured out how to do that yet ,     I look forward to the drive time between home and work/ work and home,    gives me plenty of time to wind down before I get home

OM45GE - Posted - 06/30/2016:  11:55:48


I knew a guy who wanted to be an airline pilot since he was a little kid. He mapped it all out including taking high school courses aimed at the AF academy, volunteering at a congressman's local office so he could get a recommendation, getting into the academy and flight school. Then, instead of flying fighters, he volunteers for transports because they got a lot more hours. Last time I saw him he was retired from the AF and ready to retire from American Airlines with about $200,000 in retirement pay. Like Dean, he felt like he'd never worked a day.

DeanT - Posted - 06/30/2016:  14:26:30


It would make an interesting study. I knew by 5th grade that I was going to work on airplanes. My back up plan was baseball (i was an all state player). Almost everyone I know who loved their jobs, knew what they were going to do. The folks who hate their jobs usually say they are still searching and don't know what they want to do.  

dat - Posted - 06/30/2016:  14:42:42


I always wanted to be a fireman, just ;cause they got to ride standing up on the back of the truck while going down the road, but now they don't do that anymore, but garbage men do,   so I can still look forward to riding on a garbage truck

dmiller - Posted - 06/30/2016:  17:27:50


Around here the garbage trucks are now a one man operation.  One guy drives the truck, and operates a hydraulic arm to pick up the garbage can from the curb/ empty it into the truck/ and then return it to the curb.  No more riding behind anymore.  For that matter - - the  local company here (Waste Management) doesn't even have a local office anymore.  All they have here now is a yard to park the trucks, and the drivers all have iPads they check for instructions each morning.  The last time I dialed a local number to call the company (about 5 months ago) with a minor complaint about the service to our group home - - I got one of their call centers down in Rockford Illinois near Chicago.

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/30/2016:  21:47:53


"Please leave your message at the beep, and we'll get right back to you. Your call is very important to us." Three days later....

OM45GE - Posted - 07/01/2016:  02:49:06


When he was little my son wanted to be a slinger (as they call them) on a garbage truck so he could ride on the back. 

DeanT - Posted - 07/01/2016:  06:05:49


It makes it easier to put stuff you're not supposed to, in the trash can...

dat - Posted - 07/01/2016:  08:42:05


no tellin how much stuff is in the landfills that shouldn't be

OM45GE - Posted - 07/01/2016:  13:37:52


When I was running trucking companies, I was at a safety group meeting and got to talking with the head of one of the bigger trash haulers in the area. I told him I supposed falls from the back of the trucks was a big problem. He said there were surprisingly few. He said the most common injury was from sharp objects like broken glass in garbage bags. The slingers would cut their legs open throwing the bags in the truck. Who would have thought?



He said if everyone used hard garbage pails his injuries would almost disappear. I've used them ever since. 

dat - Posted - 07/01/2016:  14:11:12


when I was a kid, we burned our trash, the paper, plastic, cans and all went on the pile, then the cans were scraped out and thrown in a sink hole, probably a rotted out stump hole, or who knows.   no tellin how much junk we threw out and burned in the woods back then.



 



we didn't know any better then, but it probably isn't much different than land fills now, mix it in with the dirt and keep piling it up

DeanT - Posted - 07/01/2016:  16:20:36


we did the same. Compost pile, burn pile, and junk pile. It's weird, how they would get to a certain size, and never seem to get any bigger.

OM45GE - Posted - 07/02/2016:  04:58:41


We had a home trash incinerator when I was a little kid. It got incredibly hot and both fascinated and scared me.

dmiller - Posted - 07/03/2016:  10:47:28


Our "trash incinerator" was a 55 gallon barrel out in the back of the house.  We put all sorts of trash in there to burn - - but anything that was "food scraps" either got put in a compost pile, or buried in the garden Dad had going.  

OM45GE - Posted - 07/04/2016:  03:25:45


Ours was in the basement and was a metal box with a flue into the chimney. It had a lid that opened when you stepped on a pedal and an ash drawer that had to be emptied. It roared when the fire got going strong. 

DeanT - Posted - 07/04/2016:  14:57:46


was that an old coal burner? My first house had one. We never used it.

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/04/2016:  15:33:21


I remember the coal truck delivering into our basement through a window. Dad would have these curtains around the bin so the dust wouldn't invade the house.

No, it was just an incinerator. I don't remember how we lit it, but it just burned whatever trash we put inside. 

DeanT - Posted - 07/05/2016:  10:23:21


Our old house also had gas lines and a gas light in the front yard.

OM45GE - Posted - 07/05/2016:  10:36:09


The house before our current one had gas lines for lighting running through the walls. They weren't connected to anything but they were there. The house was build in the 1860's.

dat - Posted - 07/05/2016:  12:41:29


I like gas lights, I have thought about piping around to our back porch for gas lights, only thing we have on propane now is the water heater, so lights wouldn't be much used

OM45GE - Posted - 07/05/2016:  15:10:27


You have to be careful where you drive a nail if you have gas lights in the house. 

dat - Posted - 07/05/2016:  15:19:45


TRUE !!



I took out all the pipe we had in our attic except for the one coming in  to the water heater, and it isn't run through the walls anywhere,

DeanT - Posted - 07/05/2016:  16:43:47


I always hope I find treasure someone hid in the walls or rafters of our old house in the past... so far no luck...

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/05/2016:  16:57:23


Like maybe a 1932 Granada?

DeanT - Posted - 07/05/2016:  19:07:01


That would work! 

OM45GE - Posted - 07/06/2016:  02:40:10


A guy in Minnesota bought a fixer upper house for $10,000. He was tearing out a bathroom wall and found a comic book that was the first appearance of Superman. It sold at auction for $175,000. 

DeanT - Posted - 07/06/2016:  06:02:00


I did find an old typewriter and phone from the 20's in my attic. Cool, but not worth much
