    This guy was in charge of disposing of all our nuclear waste. Better check his drawers. I think he was snorting some of that stuff.

    I went (after a long awaited afternoon nap today) and looked up more about this rivalry.....and once again, this is in my state. Apparently they are doing this in Ravenal, SC. This is just West of Charleston, SC.

    Come to find out, not only was it a friendly battle.....both dealerships were owned by the same guy and he's been doing this for quite some time. Apparently, these signs went viral in 2019 and all but died out with a quick fizzle.

    I can't find any information about the war up in my hometown (well before the times of the internet). That went on for years and was quite funny to follow. After a while, the news of the latest billboard was the hottest family table topic and the person who had the latest news was held in high esteem (because they knew before anyone else).

    ^ Cool….

    Recognize what’s being refueled 😬 but, can’t tell if the tanker’s an L1011 or DC-10 😳
    Always mixed up the two 🤪

    It's the tanker version of the DC-10 (KC-10) 9z2wzk0xd795.png

    It's actually pretty easy to tell the L1011 and the DC-10 apart. The center engine in the L1011 is in the aft end of the fuselage, like a 727, with a big ol' duct gettin' air down to it. The whole engine is mounted up in the vertical tail of the DC-10 (later MD-11).

    Both aircraft had a somewhat checkered operational history :# I have pleasant memories of flying on both, though.

    Since we're talking details...correct me if I'm wrong but Mr Grand's "ride" was the little brother of the KC-10...the KC-135 Stratotanker. Workhorse of the Air Force and pictured out front in the following formation during my very first deployment.

    Regardless of KC-10 or 135...he'd have appreciated the Santa pic. NKAWTG!!!! (Nobody Kicks A$$ Without Tanker Gas, Even Santa Claus :) ).

    Yes, you are exactly correct. :) The late, great Mr. Grand (of the Jersey Grands) rocked a KC-135 of one morph or another.
    Indeed, I have a cool Christmas card from him (featuring a KC-135) from a long-ago AK "Secret Santa" thing.

    We see these rascals fly over here often, typically in the very late afternoon in warm weather. They used to fly quite low (10k feet or less) but seem to pass over higher up in recent years. We can still hear 'em coming -- we have an airport fairly nearby, but the sound of the big high-bypass fans on both aircraft is unmistakable. :)

    I always think of George Grand when I see 'em. :)

    That's cool. You should post a picture of it.

    Yes indeed.
    When I saw that Santa refueling image, I thought immediately of the card from George -- I do know where it is parametrically :# I think I will see if I can zero in on its precise coordinates tomorrow. I am hoping for some unstructured (i.e., goofing off) time tomorrow!

    meanwhile, and on a similar theme, the San Diego Air & Space Museum maintains a remarkable (although not terribly well documented) collection of images on Flikr. I've "followed" them for years, and they periodically upload a tranche of interesting stuff. Today's batch included a bunch of glossy PR style aviation photos from Textron and a group of "Top Gun" photos (not the Tom Cruise kind -- the real kind).

    Tinsle.....I hated that stuff!
    Running around in my polyester pajamas in the deep shag carpet we had would charge up the polyester large like. That whole side of the tree would ZAP the snot out of me. I think that may be were AT&T got the "reach out and touch someone" jingle...

    I learned quick like to give it a wide berth.

    During Christmas in the early 70's, I found out one of my cats had eaten some tinsel.

    Several couples were over, and Dandy the big black cat named after Dandy Don Meredith comes to greet the visitors with tinsel out his rear with a couple of round balls attached. The round balls were not Christmas ornaments.

    One comment was made by a female who I would have sworn never said a "dirty" word in her life. She said immediately, "Those are t*rds on the tinsel". Everyone was more shocked by her comment than the tinsel. Not one other comment was made. Just laughter and disbelief.

    If any of you don't recognize the name Dandy Don Meredith:

    Does anyone else get these cold texting home investor spammy things? I've started messing with them a little instead of just blocking them.
