    When I first got to Lowry AFB in 1954 for Missile school, it was October, and winter was getting there. The barracks were old WWII barracks, with NO insulation! We had a coal-fired furnace, and we were on a roster for fire-guards, to make sure the furnace was running, and we still slept with double blankets. But.
    Since there was no insulation in the roof, as snow melted from the heat inside, it dripped off the roof and formed icicles - up to 3' LONG! And coming back from midnight chow, if we were on C-Shift (6PM to Midnight), it happened more than once when we jumped into our bunk, one of our chums had placed a 3' long icicle in there...

    Those were the days...

    One of the most endearing sights in the world is the vision of a naked good-looking woman leaving the bedroom to make breakfast. Bolivar Shagnasty (I believe that Lazarus Long also said it, but I can't find any record of it.)

    When I was 3-4 yo, my Grand-father broke off an icicle like that, and gave it to me because I ask. Taller than me and too cold to hold I put it on the oil circulator to warm. Somehow Dad didn't find the humor when he arrived. I didn't understand the fuss since there were plenty more.

    We still had those same design and vintage, 'H' shaped, wooden barracks when I went to Parachute Rigger School
    at NAS Lakehurst in fall/winter of 1973.
    One charming room mate from Denver actually liked the cold, and would open all the windows late at night.
    One of us normal people would wake up freezing, and go to close them.
    It was so cold your feet would stick to the floor.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.


    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    Where I grew up there were some cliffs around a hundred feet tall that you could see from across the holler. I used to hike up there in the winter and shoot at the base of the big icicles. Some of them probably weighed hundreds of pounds. When one finally broke free it went thundering down to the ground and it sounded to me like a meteor had struck.

    Good times.
