    We used the matches in our BB guns. Grandma was never happy about that......

    It is hard to think that OUR mothers look like that
    While no one ever listens to me,
    I am constantly being told to be quiet.

    In a world of snowflakes,
    be the heat..

    Yes it is, and if you look closely you will see that this was back in a time when women were not so prissy, nor men so weak, that a woman had to shave everything.

    Oh do not forget this..
    Spent 15 months on this beauty

    I was working on the top(36" pipe) when it was announced Atlanta Was awarded the 96
    olympics. The sound from a whole city in celebration is something else I will
    NEVER forget.

    Oh Oh Oh did I tell you? I guess not. Back when I was 31 or 32 I had finally become a man.
    This is no brag.. I literally could and did do it all. You see those 8' diameter ball on the very top?
    As far as it is known I am the only person to stand on one of them. I am not bragging hell I worked a places
    that had 2000 psi 2000 * vapor. I and another Local #72 ran close to 1 mile of 8" pipe at Concourse E
    Hartsfeild Jackson airport. I have looked into the containment pools in nuclear power houses when they pull
    and replaced the fuel rods. They glow when moving through the coolant.

    I have been involved with 80,000 lbs. lifts and i am not talking about watching. Hands on, Hours of Helicopter picks.
    Yeah this sounds like shit and maybe it is. But I will never never never apologize to any of you for anything.

    We all grow up at certain times and ways. I will be 61 in April I have been called many things here and I will not
    deny I deserve them. Cool. I am grown. MRK asked me who I am. He now has quite a few facts. Cool.

    Just Damn.......

    I am not better.That was and is the reason for the post. We made ourselves and have to answer
    to no man. I have been angry for a few days and I will not kill my cats.
    Life is to stupid to be simple. I would never deny any of you anything but it does not mean
    I have to like you.

    Lets not forget this I Spent 9 months on the on that has the arch. They are called the King and Queen.
    We were dropping 16" risers and it was cold. Wind maybe 20 mph and 22* when we got to work. We were using MIG setups and were not sure
    if we could weld on the 20th floor (this was the base building) so we took the buck hoist upstairs. Well it turned out the wind was to stiff
    and we went to leave. But there seems to be a problem the buck hoist has taken a dump and they were building
    so fast the carpenters haven't had time to build the temporary ladders between the floors. We are trapped 250 or so feet in the air.
    There is no shelter except for the columns holding the next few floors up. We were trapped there for 35 minutes. That was the coldest
    I have ever been in my life. And to this day I look to that as why I HATE cold.

    Just for advice 2 or 3 years later 3 guys died there. They had a fake lake and the fountain wasn't working right.
    They pulled the man hole cover and a guy went in, they lost contact with him and another went in.The 3rd
    guy made the same mistake and went to investigate. CO2 killed all 3 of them.
