Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER ALL Y'ALL! Easter is a great time of the year in Michigan. I look forward to it every year! Winter is over, it's time to put the heavy coats and gloves away. It's 3 weeks into Spring, and the sun is shining, it's getting warm and it's time to go get the potting soil and get the porch planters out. Put the lawn chairs out on the porch, and find my sunglasses. After all, it's Good Friday! Wait... What's that outside? Sounds like rain? Let me look outside... What the heck? It's…See More

The February Newsletter

Not only is February the shortest month of the year, but it’s also full of confusion, false hopes, and time travel. For example, by the time I realize we are in the month of February… we’re already halfway through the month. Like, how did we get here? Who drove?And for those of us that live in the frozen wastelands (Michigan), February means an extra blanket on the bed, layered flannel in the house and huge heating bills...Oh well, at least you'll have the Newsletter to read!Enjoy!!…See More

Merry Christmas Ya Swabs!!

Singing Carols!Well... Christmas Eve! I can tell Christmas is getting closer because I’M GETTING SICK OF LISTENING TO CHRISTMAS CAROLS!!The thing about Christmas music is that it’s really nice to listen to and sing along with... for a while... but after about two weeks of it, it starts getting on my nerves... And it’s mainly because they start before Thanksgiving.... And, after several weeks of being inundated with “Silent Night” and “The 12 Days of Christmas” and “Grandma Got Run Over By A…See More

Here it is, the last day of November and that means...A whole month of nothing but Christmas Carols overhead in Walmart, fragrance ads that make no sense at all ad nauseum on TV, polar vortex (for those of us "up north") and long underwear.But for many of us, it just means sitting inside with someone we love, keeping warm and enjoying the Holiday Season!! Hope you ALL have a safe and Happy Holiday!!And remember....D…See More

The October Newsletter

October is here, and in the northern hemisphere that often means the days are flush with falling leaves, chilling weather, and growing anticipation for the holiday season. Children may look forward to October for Halloween, which falls at the month’s close, but beer-lovers may be more excited for what’s happening at the beginning of the month—Oktoberfest. This long-standing beer festival has gained popularity around the world, but the true Oktoberfest is located in Munich, Germany, where the…See More

Hi Bill,

   I worked nights all the time with Craig Roberts, Tom Kirven, Glenn Watson, John Woods, Bill Bare (and some that I do not remember). 

I remember doing Shore Patrol duty in Barcelona, Spain...bringing drunken sailors back to the pier!

Hi Bill They call me SiskaBob. I WAS IN Heavy Six 1966-1970. I met a guy who was in RVAH-7 He owns an Italian restraunt on garfield&17 mile road called Luciano,s Just wondering if you know him? I met him and he's a really great guy-really good food. I think he told me he worked in the engine shop. Good to talk to guys from Mich who were in the Heavy Squadrons!
