You know that battered up old guy down the block who used to work in/for the military, but can’t ever talk about what he did, but he knows all kinds of interesting little world wide tid-bits about decades gone hell holes around the globe…

Yeah, and now I’m to old, sick, and Politically Incorrect to have much of a future in the Obama-Nation.

But then, Who Does? :slight_smile:

Welcome to RO!

Welcome! Perchance do you hail from Orange County, CA?


#5

HOWDY!!!


#6

No, though I did live at Beale AFB for a number of years in the mid 80s. My younger daughter was born in CA, but I now have returned to NM.


#7

Welcome to RO.


#8

IIRC, Beale AFB is in Northern CA, near Marysville, and SR-71s were based there. I grew up not too far from Mather and McClellan AFBs in Sacramento and Travis AFB in Fairfield.


#9

Another curmudgeon??? Welcome from another curmudgeon.

What’s the feminine of “curmudgeon”? “Old biddy?” Whatever it is, that’s me!

Welcome from the youngest and best looking curmudgeon. Enjoy the site.

Huh, I thought you were a couple of years older than me…but to find out for sure I’d have to confess how old I am, so you can keep the title :wink:

Heh, fair enough. So long as I’m not the worst looking, I’ll be okay…
