For Gregaz & Daisy

For Gregaz & Daisy

A C-130 was lumbering along when a cocky F-16 flashed by.
The jet jockey decided to show off.

The fighter jock told the C-130 pilot, 'watch this!' and promptly
went into a barrel roll followed by a steep climb. He then finished
with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier.. The F-16 pilot
asked the C-130 pilot what he thought of that?

The C-130 pilot said, 'That was impressive, but watch this!'
The C-130 droned along for about 5 minutes and then the C-130
pilot came back on and said: 'What did you think of that?'
Puzzled, the F-16 pilot asked, 'What the heck did you do?'
The C-130 pilot chuckled. 'I stood up, stretched my legs, walked
to the back, went to the bathroom, then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll.'
When you are young & foolish - speed & flash may seem a good thing !!!
When you get older & smarter - comfort & dull is not such a bad thing !!!
Us older folks understand this one, it's called S.O..S... slower. older, smarter....

"RIMPAC" we were supposed to go sink an aircraft carrier. We did it but one of the CAP fighters, an F-14 came up along side and the pilot made the pistol with his finger saying he got us. During the conversation between pilots our pilot kept pulling back the throttles going slower and slower. Funny thing, F-14s can go very slow too!
Finally the fighter jock said he was headed back to the bird farm. Our pilot told him we're headed back to some great pizza & beer. The picking on each other is fun!

Perfect post.. thanks.. my brother sent that to me couple of weeks ago, i wanted to post it, but knowing my propensity to screw things up chickened out.. Brother Sam, i enjoy the company of a lot of the guys on this site, but i also come on (and guessing others as well) knowing your going to have a great post, just the right mix of skin, politics, values, and humor. You do the "polecing" in a way that somehow works for all of us Alpha geezers.. I don't think the room says this enough.. we laugh at Run's and brother Reap does a good job of cleaning up or clearing posts as a monitor should.

but if you look at the big picture, what this is one big magazine.. It has an editor in chief that sorta sets the tone, makes, and keeps us all happy.. you stay out of most of the conversations and let us ramble on... sorta like im doing now...sheeshh...anyway we don't say this enough..
You make gunslot great. THANKS

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
