If when you started smoking as a teen, rolling your own was the only logical alternative because only the upper crust and women bought those fancy, expensive cigarettes. Of course you started smoking as a teen, EVERYBODY did.

You know you are under forty when you say things like, "you know your over 40 when you chose a screen name like and use the youtag."

However it was funny.

It's actually a shortened version of a character name on WoW.  Just so you know.  And SILK was taken

....if you are listening to Glenn Miller's Orchestra playing Chattanooga Choo Choo and your right foot gets the stomps.


Prefect, the prop plane I remember flying best was the DH-6 Twin Otter. 19 passenger seats, and they were little more than sailcloth over a steel pipe frame.  We had a lot of those here in Norway because of all the short runways that tend to end in seawater or mountain cliffs. Today those planes are all replaced with the DH-8 Dash 8. Twice as many seats, but hey - they are also props!

Another prop job I've been in is the classic Lockheed C-130 Hercules. Yet another workhorse. Again with with the sailcloth seats, too.
