    Here and there
    Waking up with a lump in your throat and a string hanging out of your mouth.
    Coming home from work and giving the wife/gf a big French kiss and pulling away with a pubic hair in your mouth and realizing that it does NOT belong to either of you.....

    I hear bic lighters in the pocket are no fun either.
    All it takes it one good piece of slag between the toes and I’ll assure you, you won’t do it again. Unless you’re a dumbass, then, there’s no help for you ?

    Did you ever notice how that piece of hot slag would always find it's way inside your boots? I worked for a Conservation dept. on Long Island, most of my work was on rusted old scows and steel hulled tugs. The real fun starts when you try to cut that shit with an oxy torch. They issued us winter coveralls that were cotton with a nylon lining. Those things were spark magnets and they would go up right quick.
    Yea, kept the water can very close.

    Oh dang that got me.
    Just finished posting about a great Marine’s funeral and then I see that.

    I have told this story a million times and never pass the chance.

    My little girl had just turned 3 when my friend died in a helicopter crash.
    She asked me about the new ribbon on my old ball hat and I told her.
    She said “Im really sad he cant fly the helicopter anymore and I am so happy he is in Heaven”.
    That pic reminds me of her.

    She has been obsessed with flying that helicopter since. She wants to do the mil first to shoot bad guys, then flights to save people, just like Pat.

    My house sure is dusty this evening....

    And no matter fast you take off your boot your still effed. By the time you feel it it's too late. :) I made the silly mistake of cutting 3" plate with sneakers on. When I went for the high speed shoe removal, it was easy because the shoe laces were burnt mostly away.

    Had a friend who wanted to try out my tig set up. He was wearing shorts and a t shirt. I told him bad idea, he did not listen. He did maybe thirty seconds of welding. The flash burn on his legs and arms were like a he spent a day at the beach. He listened better after that.
