    Cannonball....it's over rated. I retired at 49 due to service connected disibilities.....seems the human body isn't designed to run 3-7 miles 5 days a week or bounce around inside or on top of a maneuvering tank for 20 years....but I had fun doing it!

    Be careful what ya wish for....jawdrop

    The body may not have been designed for it...but the mind sure thought it was fun I bet!

    I have the same problem with my hearing (service connected disabilities)...with the fuss over my hearing test with each year's flight physical. It usually goes something like this..."Gee Sir, you've lost some hearing from last year." And my standard reply, "Yes, I fly a loud four engine turboprop airplane low level with the back door and ramp open which allows even more noise into the airframe. That's my job. What's your point Airman?"

    i can pass a hearing test , they say i got perfect hearing, but i cant hear a thing if there is any background noise. the test are given in a room with no background noise.

    Well I would like to catch HER hiding my tools when I'm not there! Recently I have got to my worktop ready to continue with my latest project, only to start wondering why my craft knives and files have disappeared. She had only gone and put them away in one of my spare parts drawers!!!

    Another rule is not to use the expensive vacuum baking pans to bake rocks to sterilize them; apparently this can ruin the surface of the pan.

    I'm not married, so most of my tools I steal from my dad. Especially the drill. If I had to choose just one power tool to buy, it would be a drill. But who needs to buy one when you can steal it? My dad is real nice though. He'll just roll is eyes when he discovers his drill in my room covered in elmers glue, ballast and turf.

    Micheal....REAL NICE....if it were my tools........lets just say you wouldn't think I was nice!

    Herc, Ozzy, isn't it funny how the hearing only gets worse when the wife/girlfriend starts with a to do list!

    :thumb: Hi Old Tanker

    Just sent Mrs Highlander to England-shire for a week with kids:) I got the whole place to myself.

    Damn I've just realised I will need to get the bread and milk it's a 60 mile round trip.

    But at least I will be able to get a wee dram when I'm in town.

    Cheers PS I will need to stop leaving my computer on when I go out office.

    :D :D
