Something better yet. Hot cup of peppermint tea. Too bad you don,t live next door. I have peppermint plants in my backyard. Wife used to get me to go get some leaves and I would put them in a pot of water and let it boil for about 3 mins. She loved it when she had a cold ,best part ,,,,rub down,yea!! now just memories. I still make the tea. Rocky :wub:

It seems to me that beyond the frozen feet it would be hard to maintain a state of alertness in mind-numbing cold like that. I've been in minus 20 degree weather before, but thank God nobody was shooting at me, because I was so miserable that I might not have ducked! :lol:

Hey Joe and gang:

 

Take a look at this page for some quotes from Stephen Ambrose, etc, regarding that winter.

Cool Rocky. I will also think of you when looking up telephone poles!

 

We'll have to change the words to the old Glen Campbell song, "I am a lineman for the county", to "I am a lineman for the army..." :pdt34:

Good one Marion...How about "I am a lineman for the Red Bulls?" :) Speaking of them, I found a documentary about Red Bulls in WWII in the new DVD catalogue just received from International Historic Films.
