When, I was merely an adult, I was stationed at Cheyenne, Wyoming.. aka 564 Squadron. Below is a picture of one of the missiles I worked on. They even let me hold the keys and answer the red phone. Any other information I may divulge in this post the secretary will disavow.

Apparently, I had a thing for accuracy way back when. (CLASSIFIED and REDACTED). I have forgotten more than I knew from those days. It’s amazing that we trust our country to out wonderful and brave troops who are barely in their 20’s. Better their fresh young brains, than mine.

Clare has been here for awhile and we are having a Barn Burner.
Cleaning out the garage. Need to be able to turn around to keep making more stuff!
