    65 years old and not much fine dexterity anymore.

    Welcome aboard, Jeff. I'll be 79 next Wednesday so I understand those fine moor skills slipping away. Haven't done much at the bench in several months.

    That's interesting Tom.

    Many chemicals that were used daily way back turned out pretty evil stuff to be using without precautions.

    No gloves, no respirator, just "here, take this stuff and go clean the radar gear".

    I was performing this task aboard the USS Norfolk DL-1 while we were off the coast of Columbia. The Captain came on the 1MC and made the announcement that President Kennedy had been assassinated. Everyone that was alive and old enough to remember it knows exactly where they were and what they were doing. I was alone and walked out onto the signal bridge. Everyone was speechless. We immediately broke off from operations with the Columbian navy and went on alert status. An unforgettable moment on an unforgettable day.
