    We had an inconsiderate douch nozzle of a macinist working at the shop dad and I worked at,
    years ago, who went out and bought a brand new HD Sportster Sport. He had a bad habit, of
    moving either my 7...

    Sooo, this guy fired 50 rounds from an SKS into a crowd of people and didn't kill anybody? He
    MUST be a liberal...Apparently he bought into the theory that "guns kill people!” If he had
    known about th...

    You have no idea why someone is in a hurry. There could be a list of legitimate reasons. If I
    am going the speed limit or under it (rare but does happen) I will slow down and let them pass.
    I can thin...

    Not all of France is that nice. Paris is one of the dirtiest cities I've ever been in. But,
    like the US, once you get away from the city, people become human again and try to keep things
    nicer.In keep...

    Litterers. When I was in Germany, if one threw trash - or even a cigarette - from a car, you

That is a submarine rescue vessel. She was (I say 'was' because she was scraped some years back) the U.S.S. Chanticleer ASR-7. She was my first ship and I was aboard in 1955-1956. Made one tour to WestPac.

Thanks for asking! I'll be happy to discuss anything about her if you are interested.
