Snow in Juneau yesterday, after 2 weeks of partly sunny weather and upper 40s.
Our annual April fools joke from Ma Nature, ha.
Pretty much all melted back off at this point today though.

Snow is predicted in where we live in East Tennessee on Thursday. It was 75 just a couple of days ago.
Winter is weird.

LOL..........I reported for duty on Dec. 18, 1974. We might have been at the Replacement Co. at the same time at Bldg. 650. Within a month of our arrival there were two earthquakes; a 7.0 and a 7.1.........I think. They were strong ones.

I worked with Chuck Anderson as a civilian for several years (I hired on with post engineers in 1981). I believe he retired in 1988 or so. Does the name Dennis Hubbard ring a bell?
Hello
I'll bet we were at the replacement center together. Dennis Hubbard ?? I don't recall the name. I'd have to see a face. Chuck worked weekends at Smitty's bar in Eagle River and when we would stop in he would double shot our drinks. I got really drunk there one night.

Frank Yarbrough was a guy that helped us build the railroad tie guard shack out front of the launching area. We always called him Whiskers because he had a big beard.

Nobody really wants to see that face.........LOL......... I'll have to let him know that I can still insult him so skillfully the next time we BS on the phone. He's finishing out life on a South Dakota prairie farm a stone's through from the North Dakota border. He's got balance issues and continual Agent Orange issues, but remains as tough as an anvil.

Frank Yarbrough was probably the most beloved engineer in the organization by the time he retired, and was a foundation of the Birchwood Civil Air Patrol over the years. He was our annual Santa Claus at the Christmas Parties, because he wouldn't tolerate the ladies sit on anybody elses laps. His regularly emailed jokes were a daily joy. He passed away a just few years ago. The "N" section of the National Cemetery at Ft. Rich is growing with that generation of patriots. It's like a reunion strolling through each time another joins the section.

Enjoy your coming reunion on Mt. Gordon Lyon. You're a big part of a proud history.

It's good to hear about Frank. He was a great guy. Did you know he lost a daughter to a house fire or furnace fire. She passed at the Brook Army Medical Center. Since that was my previous station before B Battery, he would ask about Ft. Sam occasionally.

There was a guy who's handle on the CB was Washboard. He owned some laundromats as I recall. Was that Dennis ?? We never had a National Cemetary in central Iowa until about 20 years ago. I have not been out to visit it yet, but I do know a whole bunch of former Viet Nam guys who now call it home. I know of at least one who was killed in Iraq in 2004. She was in my National Guard garrison.

Were you by any chance in the orientation where they were showing the frost bite movies and guy got up to leave the room and ran into the fan knocking it over ?? That was just a few days after I arrived in December 1974. They did the orientations in the basement of the reception center and it was hot from the steam pipes. That's why they had the fans on.

My wife and I were in Anchorage in July 2022. We took a trip up to B Battery and the wind was 25 to 30 mph and the temperature was in the high 30's, low 40's. We concluded that was an average summer day at B btry. Our wives (at least mine was) was astounded about how primitive and old the living conditions were for those of us stationed up there and being exposed to the elements and the wind. She was used to her sister's life on an Air Force base.

I'll let you know when the reunion is approaching. Maybe we can get together for a beer or 2.

It's Fall here. Port Douglas, AUS. Only took us about 40 hours of travel. About 80* , humid, partly cloudy today. No wind currently. Going out on the Reef later this afternoon 4-hour trip. - I probably won't snorkel. Not sure I should go at all.

Came down with a head-cold the day before we left (April 1, there). Just fuggin great! So far I have contaminated 2 US states, 4 airplanes, 4 airports, two continents, and a rental car. I'm on a roll!

They drive funny down-under. All that honking and swerving!

Last night was fairly rough, between cold and jet-lag, but I'm on the mend, I think. Had a nose bleed during the night ( a little peroxide takes those blood stains right out of the sheets.) , and I'm feeling better. I always get nose-bleeds about the time I turn the corner.

Getting in the water on the Reef and having a nose-bleed probably isn't good.... smile

No, I didn't know that!!! There was another man who worked with us who lost a daughter to a house fire that occurred out here in Mat-Su. Sad stuff.

I don't remember the orientation and fan collision, but I do remember the lousy heat regulation in those barracks back in those years.

I would love to have a couple beers with you when you visit! PM on its way with my contact info. I'll have a pic of Dennis with me when we meet. I bet you'll remember him.
