#4 The related videos of the damage are interesting.
Camp Grayling in northern Michigan will occasionally fire a stray round that takes out somebody's vacation home. Vacationers in that area are used to hearing artillery fire now & then.

#5 Warthog:

If you see my 98 Silver E320 around Danville leave me a note and we'll get together. It's the car with the Golf Bravo USMC license plate ring.

Just ask her lawyer

#8 Warthog and GolfBravoUSMC: why don't you two go to the O Club and exchange email addresses there? Unlike Rantburg proper, posts there are not archived. They will either simply evaporate as they scroll away at the bottom of the page, or you can go back later and delete what you posted. Everyone is welcome in the O Club, proved by the fact that they even let me in. ;-)

#9 tw, I thought you were a founding member of the O club.

Of course, your predilection for serving chamomile tea rather than might put some people off.

#10 Sorry, #9 was I. Using a new operating system, and forgot to set my nym.
I also meant to say "rather than harder stuff"
And of course, I should have added :)

#12 I saw one episode where Kari Byron was sporting a keffiyeh. Kind of a SF fashion statement. I decided that I woudl find some other show to entertain me.

#13 Best wishes to your California dreamin'.

I spent a day in SF at the submarine on the wharf, driving down Lombard St, and wearing out my clutch. But I woke up and went to sleep in Reno.

Keep your cannonballs to yourselves mates. You could get hurt messing with those things.

Oh no, Rambler -- I snuck in with great trepidation, being a non-officer civilian type. But it's just a hang-out for chatting, and they were very kind when I finally spoke up. :-)

Of course, your predilection for serving chamomile tea rather than might put some people off.

I'm not the bartender, for which all are appropriately grateful, although I've been known to pour under close supervision. ;-)
