  2. Stuff 2

    When your only tool is a hammer, all problems start looking like nails. I'd like to have more self-esteem, but I don't deserve it. Eagles may soar, but weasels aren't sucked into jet engines. Borrow money from pessimists - they don't expect it back. 99 percent of lawyers give the rest a bad name. 42.7 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot. A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good. If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you. Beat the 5 o'clock rush, leave work at noon. If you jogged backward, would you gain weight? I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder. How do you tell when you run out of invisible ink? Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity. I have a screwdriver in my hand. This is not a drill. Repeat, this is not a drill. A clean desk is a sign of a cluttered desk drawer. Everyone has a photographic memory, some just don't have film. Dyspraxics are people three. There's no future in time travel. If you choke a Smurf, what color does it turn? Radioactive cats have 18 half-lives. Corduroy pillows - they're making headlines! Polynesia - memory loss in parrots. A good pun is its own reward. Laughing stock - cattle with a sense of humor? Wear short sleeves; support your right to bare arms! For sale: parachute, only used once, never opened, small stain. A bartender is just a pharmacist with a limited inventory. The more you complain, the longer God lets you live. I love cats; they taste just like chicken. I'm hoping to find a cure for my hiccups, but I'm not holding my breath. Lord save me from your followers. Guns don't kill people, postal workers do. I said "no" to drugs, but they just wouldn't listen. Consciousness: that annoying time between naps. Give me ambiguity or give me something else. Suicidal twin kills sister by mistake! Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else. "More hay, Trigger?" "No thanks, Roy, I'm stuffed!" I wouldn't be caught dead with a necrophiliac. The gene pool could use a little chlorine. All generalizations are false, including this one. I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous. I want patience - AND I WANT IT NOW!!!! If you spread out all the sand in North Africa, it would cover the Sahara Desert.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Stuff

    The trouble with life is there's no background music. Heck is where people go who don't believe in Gosh. Forgive and forget, but keep a list of names just in case. If evolution is fact, why do mothers only have two hands? Time is just nature's way to keep everything from happening at once. Hard work never killed anyone, but why chance it? All true wisdom is found on T-shirts. Strip mining prevents forest fires. I don't have a solution, but I do admire the problem. I think sex is better than logic, but I can't prove it. A picture is worth a thousand words, but it uses up a thousand times the memory. The meek shall inherit the earth - after we're through with it. If a thing is worth doing, it would have been done already. Two can live as cheaply as one, for half as long. Ham and Eggs - A day's work for a chicken; a lifetime commitment for a pig. Lord, if I can't be skinny, please let all my friends be fat. Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die. Confession is good for the soul, but bad for your career. How much can I get away with and still go to heaven? Sometimes too much to drink isn't enough. Jesus loves you, it's everybody else that thinks you're an ass. It's hard to make a comeback when you haven't been anywhere. Don't get married, find a woman you hate and buy her a house. It's a lot easier on you. Be nice to your kids: they'll choose your nursing home. A closed mouth gathers no foot. The trouble with life is there's no background music. I was only looking at your name tag, honest! Money isn't everything, but it sure keeps the kids in touch. Losing a husband can be hard: in my case it was almost impossible. Jesus is coming, so look busy. We have enough youth: how about a fountain of "smart"? Two rights do not make a wrong, they make an airplane. Two wrongs do not make a right, but three lefts do. My wild oats have turned to shredded wheat! Is reading in the bathroom considered multi-tasking? Seen it all, done it all, can't remember most of it. Why do bankruptcy lawyers expect to be paid? I'd kill for a Nobel Peace prize. Everybody repeat after me: "We are all individuals." Under my gruff exterior lies an even gruffer interior. Death to all fanatics! Chastity is curable, if detected early. Smokers are just like everybody else. Just not as long. Hell hath no fury like the lawyer of a woman scorned. Somebody who knows how will always have a job. Working for someone who knows why. Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of checks. Hard work pays off in the future, but laziness pays off now.
  5. Last week
  6. Lt Col Bill Hatfield Horseman #4

    All, please keep Bill Hatfield in your thoughts and prayers. Bill has been in the hospital and in and out of ICU for the past couple of weeks. I spoke with him yesterday and let him know we are pulling for him. Bill was Horseman #4 and flew C-130A 56-0473 (now at Castle Air Museum), in the "slot" position on the demonstration team and in the film "Hercules and the Four Horseman" Bill was "the kid", and at the end of the film hops into a Triumph convertible (or was it an MG?). I think he told me it was the Wing Commanders secretary in the car with him. Ahh the good old days . . .
  7. Clarence

    There were some backwoods hillbillies living across the river from each other, who feuded constantly. John hated Clarence with a passion and never passed up a chance to throw rocks across the river at Clarence. This went on for years until one day the Corps of Engineers came to build a bridge across that river. John was elated; he told his wife that finally he was going to get the chance to cross over and whip Clarence. He left the house and returned in a matter of minutes. His wife asked what was wrong, didn't he intend to go over the bridge and whip Clarence? He replied that he never had really seen Clarence up close and didn't realize his size until he started over the bridge and saw the sign: "CLEARANCE 8 FT 3 IN"
  8. STUFF

    STUFF: I feel like I'm diagonally parked in a parallel universe. Remember: First you pillage then you burn. To err is human. To forgive is against company policy. If at first you don't succeed, redefine success. Xerox and Wurlitzer will merge to market reproductive organs. Half the people in the world are below average. Failure is not an option. It's bundled with your software. You chatter more than a dolphin by a fish bucket. Save the whales: collect the whole set . I just got lost in thought, and it was unfamiliar territory. You have the right to remain silent, anything you say will be misquoted, then used against you. Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how popular it remains? Atheism is a non-prophet organization. The problem with sex in the movies is the popcorn usually spills. Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm. The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. I drive way too fast to worry about cholesterol. Time is a great healer, but a terrible beautician. Capital punishment isn't for making examples, it's for making bad people dead. My mind is like a steel trap - rusty and illegal in 37 states. Quantum mechanics: The dreams stuff is made of. The only substitute for good manners is fast reflexes. Support bacteria - they're the only culture some people have. When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane and going the wrong way. If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried. A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it. For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism. Never do card tricks for the group you play poker with. No one is listening until you make a mistake. Success always occurs in private and failure in full view. The colder the x-ray table the more of your body is required on it. The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the ability to reach it. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research. To succeed in politics, it is often necessary to rise above your principles. Monday is an awful way to spend 1/7th of your life. Two wrongs are only the beginning. The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard. The sooner you fall behind the more time you'll have to catch up. A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory. Can a blind person feel blue? Change is inevitable except from vending machines. Plan to be spontaneous - tomorrow. Always try to be modest and be proud of it!
  9. Happy Birthday Jcapsparkchaser

    Bob thanks for the great pictures! You know I'm not sure I ever saw that place in the daylight! I can still remember the smell! I see from the list, that I must have missed a few of the clubs. Once I got my 5-level, I started to go on a few CRB inputs, a 60 day TDY, then 90 days in Blind Bat in Ubon. Then off to CCK to learn another language and another Bar district. I am going to save those pictures they are so good. Ken
  10. Crew chief took off in a 130

    Hi all, Sorry for the delay. If you hadn't already seen the various news items on this, here's a link to the website: www.findingmeyersherc.com Although there's currently a lot more of the detail on the actual Kickstarter campaign page, which is here :- Hopefully any questions you may have will be answered on there. As you can see, we're not trying to raise a silly amount, just enough to cover fuel cost to get us out to the search areas we've identified. Cheers Paul
  11. Three Little Pigs

    Three Little Pigs went out to dinner one night.. The waiter came and took their drink order. 'I would like a Sprite,' said the first little piggy. 'I would like a Coke,' said the second little piggy. 'I want beer, lots and lots of beer,' said the third little piggy. The drinks were brought out and the waiter took their orders for dinner 'I want a nice big steak,' said the first piggy.. 'I would like the salad plate,' said the second piggy. 'I want beer, lots and lots of beer,' said the third little piggy. The meals were brought out and a while later the waiter approached the table and asked if the piggies would like any dessert. 'I want a banana split,' said the first piggy. 'I want a cheesecake,' said the second piggy. 'I want beer, lots and lots of beer,' exclaimed the third little piggy. 'Pardon me for asking,' said the waiter to the third little piggy,' But why have you only ordered beer all evening?' The third piggy says - 'Well, somebody has to go 'Wee, wee, wee, all the way home!

  14. Actual Bumper Stickers

    One of my favorites; "F-111 pilots go deeper and stay longer." Frequently seen at RAF Lakenheath in the 80s.
  15. Actual Bumper Stickers: "Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine." "I love cats...they taste just like chicken" "Out of my mind. Back in five minutes." "Cover me. I'm changing lanes." "As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in public schools" "Happiness is a belt-fed weapon" "Laugh alone and the world thinks you're an idiot." "Sometimes I wake up grumpy; Other times I let her sleep." "I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather.... ...Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car...." "Montana - At least our cows are sane!" "The gene pool could use a little chlorine." "I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian." "Your kid may be an honor student but you're still an IDIOT!" "It's as BAD as you think, and they ARE out to get you." "When you do a good deed, get a receipt, in case heaven is like the IRS." "I took an IQ test and the results were negative." "If we aren't supposed to eat animals, why are they made of meat?" "Time is the best teacher; Unfortunately it kills all its students!" "It's lonely at the top, but you eat better." "Reality? That's where the pizza delivery guy comes from!" "Forget about World Peace..... Visualize Using Your Turn Signal!" "Warning: Dates in Calendar are closer than they appear." "Give me ambiguity or give me something else." "We are born naked, wet and hungry. Then things get worse." "Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot."
  16. c-130 Torque

    I recommend your military request technical data upgrades. I've never even seen a 1C-130B-2-4, so I have no idea what information I could add to help you troubleshoot your problem. With updated technical data, you might be able to do this on your own. As with most fluctuations, it is much easier to recommend a maintenance action if I was able to see all the engine instruments. Just about anything can cause a torque flux, and "all wiring" is a pretty broad statement.
  17. Bob Daley Passing

    I was shocked and very saddened to learn of Bob's passing. 316th reunions will never be the same. We didn't know each other at the time but we were in the 37th together. And if one wanted to know the whereabouts or history of a specific Herk, Bob was your go-to guy. He was absolutely tenacious in accounting for every tail number. He will be sorely missed by everyone who hangs out on this forum. Another good guy...gone. RIP.
  18. Bob Daley Passing

    CANCER SUCKS! Sorry to hear this news. I too as so many others have related knew Bob from email correspondence and this forum only, never met face to face but I'm sure we could meet one day and sit down and have cold beverages like we were long lost friends reuniting. Rest easy Bob, rest assured you truly touched many and made a difference. Thank you for your service! Here is the last list I got from Bob back in Sept 2017. All Herks Status -Unoffical as of 1 Aug 2017.xlsx
  19. A Texan in Ireland A Texan walks in to a pub in Ireland and clears his voice to the crowd of drinkers. He says, I hear you Irish are a bunch of hard drinkers. Ill give $500 American dollars to anybody in here who can drink 10 pints of Guinness back-to-back. The room is quiet, and no one takes up the Texans offer. One man even leaves. Thirty minutes later the same gentleman who left shows back up and taps the Texan on the shoulder. Is your bet still good? asks the Irishman. The Texan says yes and asks the bartender to line up 10 pints of Guinness. Immediately the Irishman tears into all 10 of the pint glasses, drinking them all back-to-back. The other pub patrons cheer as the Texan sits in amazement. The Texan gives the Irishman the $500 and says, If ya dont mind me askin, where did you go for that 30 minutes you were gone? The Irishman replies, Oh I had to go to the pub down the street to see if I could do it first.
  20. I thought it to be the appropriate thing to do. He was a good friend and he played a huge roll in the success of C-130Hercules.net. I owe him a lot and he is/will certainly be missed by the C-130 community. May God bless him, his friends and his family. --Casey

  25. STUFF

    STUFF: II've only been wrong once, and that's when I thought I was wrong. I don't find it hard to meet expenses. They're everywhere. I just let my mind wander, and it didn't come back. Humpty Dumpty was pushed. All generalizations are false. The more people I meet, the more I like my dog. Work is for people who don't know how to fish. If you don't like the news, go out and make some. For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism. IRS: We've got what it takes to take what you have got. I'm out of bed and dressed. What more do you want? I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not too sure. I can handle pain until it hurts. No matter where you go, you're there. If everything is coming your way, then you're in the wrong lane. It's been Monday all week. Gravity always gets me down. This statement is false. They told me I was gullible...and I believed them. It's bad luck to be superstitious. According to my best recollection, I don't remember. The word "gullible" isn't in the dictionary. Honk if you like peace and quiet. The Big Bang Theory: God Spoke and BANG! it happened. Atheism is a non-prophet organization. Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how it remains so popular? Save the whales. Collect the whole set. A day without sunshine is like, night. The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. Gravity: It's not just a good idea, it's the LAW! Life is too complicated in the morning. We are all part of the ultimate statistic -- ten out of ten die. Nobody's perfect. I'm a nobody. Ask me about my vow of silence. The hardness of butter is directly proportional to the softness of the bread. The last thing on earth you want to do will be the last thing you do. Diplomacy is the art of letting someone else get your way. If ignorance is bliss, then tourists are in a constant state of euphoria. If at first you don't succeed, don't try skydiving. If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends? Stop repeat offenders. Don't re-elect them! I intend to live forever. So far so good.
  26. help identify this accessory kit

    great info. Thanks for the research and comments. It didn't make any sense to me until I saw the diagrams. greatly appreciated.
  27. help identify this accessory kit

    Dutch got it right --- again.The work order came down from Maint. control to the 780 shop.They droped the winch off at the acft.I don't remember the capacity but it could pull one hell of a load.Slow but powerful.The kit shown in the O/P was handy sometimes but wasn't as heavy duty as the big yellow beast.
  28. help identify this accessory kit

    Good job of digging up that info RC. I looked up the FSN but got a bunch of mash mash info. We had a couple of weird winch kits in my day, one was for removing the aft cargo door in the field. Bill
  29. The elderly priest, speaking to the younger priest, said, "It was a good idea to replace the first four pews with plush bucket theater seats. It worked like a charm. The front of the church always fills first now." The young priest nodded, and the old priest continued, "And you told me adding a little more beat to the music would bring young people back to church, so I supported you when you brought in that rock'n'roll gospel choir. Now our services are consistently packed to the balcony." "Thank you, Father," answered the young priest. "I am pleased that you are open to the new ideas of youth." "All of these ideas have been well and good," said the elderly priest, "but I'm afraid you've gone too far with the drive-thru confessional." "But, Father," protested the young priest, "my confessions and the donations have nearly doubled since I began that!" "Yes," replied the elderly priest, "and I appreciate that. But the flashing neon sign, 'Toot 'n Tell or Go to Hell' cannot stay on the church roof.
