Sadly, top gear of the tractors going back down to West Virginia probably tops out at 10 mph.

(for any fans from West Virginia -I’m joking! I read some West Virginian’s hate Ohio for some stupid comment about tractors riding to Columbus).

Your State is beautiful.  I’ve been there many times.

tractors don’t do well on steep grades, anyway.

also - Morgantown, Wheeling, & Charleston all have more people than where I grew up.

i had to cut I cross country trip short from rain & fog and called it quits in Morgantown - I had planned to make Asheville, NC.  Your stadium looks nice from the parking lot.

Both my twins cried when we left my Green Machine in exchange for our toasters.

i was really surprised by that.

i loved that T-Bird, too, but times change.

Comment 18 Jul 2019

I had a ‘97 Thunderbird that I drove my wife to the hospital in.

I really liked that car.

i traded it in on 2 Scion XB’s 4 years later after my wife’s Taurus’ engine was probably intentionally destroyed by a shop that’s out of business.

The Taurus was baggage / the T-bird was FINE.

We drove those Scions (2 of them) for almost 15 years.

44 Is “Boun boun” & when you actually are 20 & single - but know you can not  talk anything but work with coworkers & start hearing “boun boun”

that was really hard - I did not cross the line.  I REALLY WANTED to - she was beautiful .

Cobra jar shots,  if I remember enough - one woman I worked with called me a “goat” via code - 44’ I never, ever, was improper.  I did have eyes, & a soul.

i was always proper.  The thing is - the code is 44.

i dont know why.

in Vietnamese the words for the number 44 -

Also, as a 20 year old in a position WAY OVER HIS HEAD - I trained a lot of Vietnamese refugees how to do a job.

i remember one time opining that the US maybe should have never been there (I saw video of my new father in law at 18 or so manning what looked like a .50 cal on a helicopter - standing as it lifted - you’re crazy for that, I told him.  So was everyone he replied.

every single one of the Vietnamese at the party (all but me) told me I was wrong.

im not sure I believe it. They all were convinced, though.

Thank you for telling us this.  I read & was taught that the entire country disrespected Vietnam Vets coming back home.

that’s a black eye we gave ourselves.

i am happy your experience seems different than what I was taught happened.  My father did not go - oil industry + me a dumb little toddler.

They had everything I got from microfiche EXACTLY right.

Comment 18 Jul 2019

One of my ancestors is simply listed as “killed by Indians”. 1777.

that was a tactic during the Revolution - if we could beat the “Indians” the British were a cakewalk.

Comment 17 Jul 2019

That may be similar to my family. I am looking to apply for membership to Sons of the American Revolution.  By my count there are 4 that I would be shocked to see them disregarded & another 14 that I found listed on military playlists

I knew a lot about my family history before I downloaded that app.  They have serious citations and links to documents.  I saw photos of pension payments over 150 years old.

Comment 17 Jul 2019

I draw a LOT of interest from Morman genealogy researchers solely on my name & the History of the LDS Church.  I have no genealogical connection to who they think I do. 

Comment 17 Jul 2019

I downloaded the “morman” app.  There are Mormons on both sides of my family.

genealogy is Serious for them in ways I don’t want to go into.

i Met one at my grandmother’s funeral.  She was a regular person like many of us - with different rules bounding her life.

Comment 17 Jul 2019

I think the last time that sort of thing happened one of my ancestors ended up in the 70th Ohio Infantry & someone in that group may have been a certifiable pyromaniac.  Sorry, Atlanta.
