Hi Buck,
welcome to the site.
Do not worry about spelling, we will work it out. I know plenty of people with good schooling that cannot spell properly and they do not have your issues.
Cheers from an Aussie Viet Vet on TPI pension doing his best to help others here and learn at the same time.
There are many folk here who are willing to share their knowledge, and also, have some super interesting posts detailing their latest finds and restorations.
Keep smilling buddy and enjoy the ride.
Cheers,
Eddie B.

Welcome aboard, (even though your join date show's you've been looking a couple years).

Don't worry about the spelling or punctuation, and don't let the "Spell Police" get you down, which may happen from time to time.

As for remembering things from the 30s & 40s, but not remembering what happened yesterday.... sometimes it's better that way. There's a lot I'd like to forget, (and lots I have forgotten).

Enjoy the site, share your stories, and pick our brains when & where you need to. We're all here to share stories & information about the hobby and all that's tied into it.... collecting, restoring, machining new parts, rebuilding old parts, locating parts, etc.

Buck,
Glad you made it to 'Stak. Enjoy. I'm exNavy and a Millwright.
TinCans first, then a Skipjack class SSN, Small boat, Big Engine, Go Fast. You can take the boy out of the engineroom, but you can't take the engineroom out of the boy, so I went millwrighting. I see you're not far from China Lake and Ridgecrest. Was homeported in San Diego and visited Reno some. Also visited at Ridgecrest along the way. Keep plugging away and have fun, you came to the Right Place.
