  42. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I did that with the key of my Mustang too!

  43. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    You grew up in NJ, right? Cold there too!

  44. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    do you remember how cool and grown up we felt when we could first drive?! that was a feeling! Now I drive 70 miles a day… it doesn’t feel ‘cool’ anymore…

  45. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Who grew up in NJ? I grew up in South Jersey…

  46. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    me? I grew up outside Chicago – but the Mustang was right here in Philly – oh yeah, we have our share of cold – not like upstate NY or WI, but it’s no walk in the park

    Smoky Rose says:

    did you, Lorrie – where abouts?

  48. Mommykat Bubbly Chick

  53. Smoky Rose

  57. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    we have those “circles” all over this area..they call them “rotaries”…I call them accidents waiting to happen…

  58. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Just say no to Circles when driving. Circles are BAD!!

  59. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Yup, that was COOL, driving around was a hobby in my day!!!!lol…… Stop at a stop sign, jump out, run around the car, jump back in & drive away!!!! lol….. how stupid is that!?!?! Get gas, everyone jumps out, wash the windows, check the tires, check the oil!!! $5.00 to fill your tank!!!!! Boy times have changed!!!

  69. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    No, he was the head of the flight line!!

  70. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    I’m sorry, what’s that mean? mine didn’t talk too much about it – I’m not familiar with all the terms.

  71. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    That meant, he covered the chutes for the paratroopers, scheduled the drops, ran the loading of bombs on the B-52′s during Vietnam War, loaded the equiptment! That sort of stuff!!!

  72. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    The flight line is the samething as a airport for troops.

  73. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    oh wow – talk about a responsibility! mine was in the korean conflict.

  74. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    I think dad mostly did alot of yelling!!! lol……. Gotta keep those Airmen moving ya know!!!

  75. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    really. how did I never hear that term – like I said, he didn’t talk a lot about it – he told us about the goofy goony (sp?) birds on midway island, where he was stationed… dumb things wouldn’t get off the runways… and how beautiful whidby island in wash state was – and it is….

  76. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Well I would’nt know if my dad had’nt been in the Air Force!!! I was on Midway Island!!!!!!! Itsy-Bitsy Island!!! It’s really scary taking off & landing there!!!

  77. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    My Dad wouldn’t talk about much… except I have all his old photos… Shipmates, travel, ect!

  78. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    no kidding?! wow! that’s cool, Anita!

  79. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    old photos are great treasures.

    he’d fly from midway to the bikini atolls – they’d measure radiation after they dropped bombs there

  80. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    I remember learning about those tests!! Yup, when we moved to Okinawa, we had a lay-over on Midway! It’s like the only place to fuel up, between Hawaii & Okinawa!

  81. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    yup, it was top secret at the time – then the world learned…. I was at the National Archives a few years ago and pulled some fantastically intersting material. eye opening stuff – almost all declassified now – there’s still some stuff blacked out. after I lost my dad, it made me feel closer to read about it.

  82. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    It was’nt a very nice time!!! I don’t envy him!!!
