Apparently they are now on agendas, and if they don't produce, their funding gets cut off. Bring back the mad ones I say.

Yeah, he was working the ship (delivering water and diesel), got his leg tangled around the rope, over the side, never to be seen again. So they sent me there to take his place. I ain't so stupid when it comes to ropes, and high places.

Was just thinking that Frankenstein clip I put on was from 1935 and I was born only 14 years later.

I know, I remember a thread about guessing your age somewhere along the line. Didn't do lighthouses but steelmills were not a treat either. But hey, we made it. And, had a lot of experiences we can share when the memory is jogged.

Was a guessing game. But not that long ago. You, if I remember correctly, you posted clues.

@LH, Have heard of a bunch of Warlocks refered to as simply a group or a gathering. Also a coven but, don't know if there is a special name for old Warlocks. Sure you can come up with one though. LOL.
