  1. Cathy, I still miss the a$$hole too! He is one of the first people who greeted me, and made me feel comfortable at the WFFC in Quincy Illinois. yahoo have fun and love each other muff muff! [email protected]
  2. I think I paid $175.00 CASH on the spot for 15 over in Wisconsin. I never have known any other place where the officer wants CASH on the spot. WUWT? [email protected]
  3. Why would you even ask? Polio? Gone! Smallpox? GONE! Have you ever met anyone who had suffered through these diseases? I have met people who had them 60 years ago, and STILL have serious health issues, deformities and everyday problems, because they didn't have a 5 minute vaccination option when they were children. Have you ever been in a hospital where a couple of kids with whooping cough are? Treat yourself to that! Listen to those kids struggling for every breath. I had friends who's mothers had rubella when they were pregnant. The friends were deaf and had holes in their hearts that had to be closed. Except of course for the 2 who died because of the holes in their heart. Go to the CDC website and do a little research. And then, get those shots!~ [email protected]
  4. carry your cellphone in your jumpsuit! What a basic thing, and the number of people who leave it in their locker amazes me. "I didn't want to break the phone". But if you are hurt and laying in a field and we are all looking for you, WHO CARES! Or if you see someone who needs attention, or who you THINK might need attention, pull your cellphone out and call manifest. Yes. MANIFEST. Let them call the correct people for the situation. They may already know about it, they may already have people on the way. It may have been an inflatable shark. [email protected]
  5. I helped with the organization of the WFFC for a few years. We always knew that the possibility of a 1000 different horrible accident combinations were out there. It would be impossible to prepare for every single one of them, but we knew that there should be a general plan of action in case any one of them should occur. At the staff level, we talked about "what if?" scenarios. We put together our plan and we determined who our key personnel should an accident happen. Every dz has an opportunity to make a similar plan and put it into action. This should be discussed at every single dz on safety day. [email protected]
  6. C'MON Lisa! Up and at um! No more seizures! Hey lady, really we are worried for you and wishing you well! [email protected]

    OH yea! A friend of mine has a very nice wife. I have only met her once 10 years ago. He is very proud of her and talks about her accomplishments and shows off her picture. At work the other night, I swore she walked through the door. I started carrying on a conversation with her, like I knew her, but it wasn't his wife. [email protected]

    I have been told I have one. I used to date a guy, and his roommate dated a friend of mine. One day, my friend was at the guys house while they were watching a football game. She fell asleep on the couch, when she woke up, she swore I was sitting on the edge of the couch. That's how I found out I wasn't dating that guy any more.. [email protected]
  10. There was a period of our life where I thought that everyday was going to be the day that killed me. I did what BIGUN describes, and kind of stepped back from the pile of muck, and just looked at the crisis that was in front of me for that one moment and dealt with just that one. NO OTHER. Then I realized that I had made it through that day, and I could handle the next. A piece of chocolate with me goes a long way. We'll be thinking of you as you eat your elephant one bite at a time. Let us know how it's going. [email protected]
  11. Don't think I knew George, but I am always sorry when one of 'ours' is gone. BSBD [email protected]
  12. Um no he is currently leading his "bullies" in an inbound formation flight to buzz a property in a undisclosed location.... We'r currently on a victor vector and flying IRF cuz leader boy there can't read a sectional and theonlyski forgot his GPS. We tired to let skyjumpinfool lead, he said he knew the way and we ended up over Loveland. sundevil777 spoke up and said we need to turn right and we over flew Wyoming.... RM1 said to post for directions and Normiss forgot, that's how we ended up in this victor vector and holding @ 3K. Is this a threat? LOL! Gosh she has her panties in a wad! Bet she has absolutely NO life at all. Someone should throw her out of a plane at 12000 feet and loosen her bowels up a bit! [email protected]
  13. Do you suppose there are more germs on the bug floating in my wine, or on my finger, as I try to dig him out of my wine? [email protected]
  14. So what is the story here? You marry into money? I figured somebody died and left him some. [email protected]
  15. so sorry to lose someone so full life and love! BSBD, Jen! [email protected]
  16. Man I miss Bob, Good ol' Bob! And if anybody sees Bill, tell him "hey" for me, wuudja? [email protected]
  17. So I understand that most (all) equipment comes with an informative guide on operations. I usually (always) read that guide from cover to cover. I operate things like mowers, riding and push, trimmers, weedwackers and such, and my clients ask me questions like, "I put grass seed on this wall, and I know that it is twelve feet tall and straight up and down, but would you mow it for me?" DUH! [email protected]
  18. One of my favorite things was the morning I got up to go to the john, heard a balloon inflating and decided to check it out. I was in my jamies, and had left Streaker sleeping in the tent at Couch Freaks. The balloon crew was made up of a bunch of people I knew, so they asked me to come with them. Little did I know it was a 'cross country' and we would be out chasing the balloon all morning long. There I was running down country lanes on an Iowa Sunday morning while farmers were passing us, watching me run around in my jamies, helping to land the balloon, refill it with Skydivers and set the balloon free again! GOOD TIMES! [email protected]
  19. Because of his health conditions we have had this talk at our house. We (he) decided that the only appropriate way to celebrate his life would be tie die. Depends on the jumper, the family and your relationship with him, but for us, it will be tie die. Also, his obit pic will be one of him in freefall with a big smile on his face. [email protected]
  20. AND WE STILL DON"T HAVE A "LIKE" BUTTON! WUWT?! [email protected]
  21. I'm hoping it's TK and we all get to move to the most fabulous dz in the world. I can see it now, 727, C130, swimming pool, luxury hotel, wonderful bands and free booze. TK, you out there? [email protected]
  22. [ We can learn the same lesson: taking just a moment at the DZ to address a seemingly minor issue may make all the difference in the world. Asking a fellow skydiver "did you know your RSL is disconnected" or "did you notice this worn spot on your pilot chute bridle" might be all it takes. Don't just say "meh, they have lotsa jumps, I'm sure they know about it" and walk away. True story: I told a skydiver that his closing pin had fallen out of his loop, and he should have that checked and repaired before he used the rig on a jump. He grabbed the rig and ran for the plane. I found the Sand TA and told him of the closing loop failure. He took the jumper off of the plane and sure enough, it the closing pin had fallen out of the loop again. He grounded the guy until the repair to his rig was made. To this day, that jumper won't talk to me. JACKASS! Elvisio "SPEAK UP!" Rodriguez [email protected]
  23. I had 5 in a years time. I have LOTS of pictures, but no video. Lucky for me, I have a great doc, and he is really good. So far, so good. [email protected]
  24. Not only was she a great lady, she raised a great family. The Androskys are a skydiving legend. There are 3 generations of jumpers/aviators hanging out in the great Northwest, because of Bev. Anyone who jumps, should put 'Skydive Superior' on their bucket list and make a trip to Soup, Wi, to get a great pic of the big lake they call Gitchigoome in the background with an Androsky on the jump in the foreground. We have ours! And we consider ourselves a lucky family, for being lucky enough to have the Androskys as part of it! [email protected]
