Upright and breathing. Good thing.

Me and Rod in the engine bay

This is in the engine bay of an F-16 Falcon. We had just finished removing the engine for maintenance at the engine shop. Normal, mundane routine stuff. Inspection will be tomorrow prior to getting a new/overhauled engine for installation. Keeping them flying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My coworker is Rod.

Men and Leather

Posted by retiredpo1 on 01/24/2010

Did you know this about Leather Dresses?

Did you know that when a woman wears a leather dress, a man’s heartbeat quickens, his throat gets dry, he gets weak in the knees and he begins to think irrationally.

Ever wonder why?

It’s because she smells like a new truck!

From my friend Miss Mary.

Be real now. Which do you prefer? Them or Us?

Not only are the Republican one’s downright gorgeous but a whole lot smarter, too.

Thanks to Bob’s Bites.

Rotten weather in the Desert!

Posted by retiredpo1 on 01/18/2010

UPDATE: The system that came through today is one of five according to the local out of Bakersfield!

47 with light rain showers and wind. At least it is better than the surrounding mountains. They have winter storm warnings for later today and tonight. Yeah, it snows in the mountains here in the High Desert.

Got a Mythbusters Marathon on Discovery to help out. I am getting tired of the Michelle Obammystain PSA for Haiti, though. I know about the earthquake, already. Don’t beat me up over it.

Friday! And a three day weekend?

Posted by retiredpo1 on 01/15/2010

Yay! I made it through this one.

It was a busy week and filled with COLD mornings on the flight line.

And then the news of the earthquake in Haiti. Sad indeed. But my young brethren in Second Fleet are coming to the rescue. Not withstanding the idiot danny glover’s take on the situation. Must be pals with all the trash at MSNBC and CNN!

And now the dregs of society, you know, harry, nancy, max, chuckie, babs, dianne and those other two bitches from Washington have cuddled up with the skanks known as unions on the healthcare corruption in process in both houses. With a bit of good luck, the seat in the senate formerly held by drunken, teddy “the swimmer” kennedy will be occupied by a real, upstanding individual and the aforementioned scum of the earth will get their collective comeuppance.

Even the occasional tantrum throwing resident crybaby at Fox News, Juan Williams has had it with this bunch. Says something, doesn’t it. At least the Cambridge PD union came out in support of Mr. Brown in this upcoming election. Good on them. Some Californistan PDs could take a few pointers.
