    Happy Birthday Mec1945 and Art's Daughter

    Thanks! It was a great day. Finished putting my WWII jeep body back together. What a great present to me! After 12 years of owning it, it is finally coming together. Here is a link to some of my photos of the work I am doing: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/fbx/?set=a.1660138738788.2078034.1096741238&l=c00a9eefcd It is has been a learning and trying time starting with the body in about 10 pieces and rebuilding it from that. It turned out great!

    Couldn't agree more with Colonel Allen West. I can't believe where I country is going. We can't feel safe in our own country and those in D.C. aren't doing anything about it. Just terrible!!!!

    Documentary - No Bridge Too Far

  4. This is very sad, Papa Art had sent me some really nice emails telling me how he and his wife had met and really uplifted me in my relationship with my wife. I only met him via emails, but I knew he was a very kind person. My heart goes out to his family. Take care Art and God speed.....
  5. Yes I just found out the server has being going up and down all day today. They made some updates and things crashed. Go figure. Just checked at this time and is working but that may change.
  6. Nothing fancy and still working on it but here is our new site for our group: Military Equipment Collectors Living History Group. The neat thing about our group we are not just based around one single unit. We allow anyone in the Pacific Northwest that has their own impression to join. We do mostly displays around the area. We also are looking for people that are military vehicle collectors and just plain history buffs. Anyone interested in military history can join! Here is the site addres: http://meclhg.x10hosting.com/ Also we just got up and running our forum which there is a link on the site. You do not have to be a member of the group to join the forum. It is open to anyone interested in military history. Thanks for checking it out.

  12. Well today I spent the day around World War II canvas. What a smell!! We are getting ready for our yearly military history display and my buddy picked up a small wall tent (1942) and a large wall tent (1944) - The Large wall tent was for free w/poles Though it has a few rips and holes in it. No big deal. So today we pulled them out and took a look at them. The large wall we hand to put all new guide lines on it and fix the ridge pole as someone cut it in half So we got it all fixed up and decided we needed to put it up. What a job that was!! That tent is about 14' by 15' and 12' tall!!! What a task. Got it up and then just lounged under it. It was great!!! Wish I had my camera with me, I would have taken a pic of it. Just thought I would share. It sure was a blast and was great to be doing something I enjoy instead of being stuck at work.
