    Rhein Main Restaurant

    Hi Jim, Mitteldick's sounds very familiar, but like you said. I doubt if that's the name. I think it was in Zepplinheim. Have you checked out the air base on Google Earth? The only familiar sights are the hotel and the star-shaped buildings where the mail room used to be. Even the building where the American Legion used to be in Waldorf is an empty field now! Have fun and get some pictures. Don R.

    Rhein Main Restaurant

    Sorry I can't help but I sure remember the air base food. I remember the base cafeteria as winning the USAFE award almost every year. The holiday meals were amazing. I'm not sure I ever went off base to eat, but I was only passing through.

    Rhein Main Restaurant

    anyone stationed at RM remember the name of a good german restaurant pretty near base; I have it recorded as Middledicks but i really doubt that's the right name. we're headed back to Germany & I'd like to retrace some good memories. Thnx

    Ponderings

    Ponderings: How come you press harder on a remote-control when you know the battery is dead? Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations? You know how most packages say "Open here".What is the protocol if the package says, "Open somewhere else"? Since Americans throw rice at weddings do orientals throw hamburgers? Why are they called buildings, when they're already finished? Shouldn't they be called builts? Why are they called apartments, when they're all stuck together? Why do people without out a watch look at their wrist when you ask them what time it is? Why do you ask someone without a watch what time it is? Who is General failure and why is he reading my disk ? The light went out, but where to ? Why do banks charge you a "non-sufficient funds fee" on money they already know you don't have? Why is it you have a "pair" of pants and only one bra? How come when I call Information they can't tell me where my keys are? Why do people go to Burger King and Order a Double Whopper with a Large French Fry and insist on getting a Diet Coke? Does the reverse side also have a reverse side? Why is the alphabet in that order? If the universe is everything, and scientists say that the universe is expanding, what is it expanding into? If you got into a taxi and he started driving backwards, would the taxi driver end up owing you money?

    Taiwan C-130 Crash 1965

    Mr. Wood, do you have at least one photograph of Sgt Alan C Martin? His parents are long dead (Mother in 1970, Father in 1989), and he was apparently an only child. He is the last man from Canada for whom we are still hoping to locate a photo...high school ("secondary school") or later, and it doesn't have to be formal. Failing all else, do you know which school he attended? The VVMF Photo Project is nearing completion. Of the 58,318 names etched on The Wall, we seek at least one photo for 1,591 men. I can be reached at mdewitt2575@gmail.com. Whether or not you have a photo, I hope you'll leave a remembrance at your friend's site. Alan Craig Martin's dedication page is online at <http://www.vvmf.org/Wall-of-Faces/29179/ALAN-C-MARTIN>.

    Portrait

    An elderly woman decided to have her portrait painted. She told the artist, "Paint me with diamond earrings, a diamond necklace, emerald bracelets, a ruby broach, and a gold Rolex." "But you are not wearing any of those things," replied the artist. "I know," she said. "It's in case I should die before my husband. I'm sure he will remarry right away, and I want his new wife to go crazy looking for the jewelry."

    Pest Control Inspector

    A woman was having a passionate affair with an inspector from a pest-control company. One afternoon they were carrying on in the bedroom together when her husband arrived home unexpectedly. "Quick," said the woman to her lover, "into the closet!" and she pushed him in the closet, stark naked. The husband, however, became suspicious and after a search of the bedroom discovered the man in the closet. "Who are you?" he asked. "I'm an inspector from Termite Busters," said the exterminator. "What are you doing in there?" the husband asked. "I'm investigating a complaint about an infestation of moths," the man replied. "And where are your clothes?" asked the husband. The man looked down at himself and said, "Those little bastards."

    Hillbilly Knows Best

    Hillbilly Knows Best A hillbilly farmer from back in the hills walked twelve miles, one way, to the general store. 'Heya, Wilbur,' said Ron, the store owner. 'Tell me, are you and Myrtle still making fires up there by rubbing stones and flint together?' 'You betcha, Ron. Ain't no 'tother way. Why?' 'Got something to show you. Something to make fire. It's called a "match". 'Match? Never heard of it.' 'Watch this. If you want a fire you just do this,' Ron says, taking a match and striking it on his trousers. 'Huh. Well, that's something, but that ain't for me, Ron.' 'Well, why not?' 'I can't be walking twelve miles every time I want a fire and borrow your trousers.'

    No-flap takeoff?

    I've done all 3 flap configuration takeoffs...other than 50%, not on purpose. The plane flies fine....but the 0% flap was a bit 'heavy' on the yoke. 😉 (thankfully, a very long runway too)
  16. How many contract lawyers does it take to change a light bulb? WHEREAS, the party of the first part, also known as "Lawyer", and the party of the second part, also known as "Light Bulb", do hereby and forthwith agree to a transaction wherein the party of the second part (Light Bulb) shall be removed from the current position as a result of failure to perform previously agreed upon duties, i.e., the lighting, elucidation, and otherwise illumination of the area ranging from the front (North) door, through the entryway, terminating at an area just inside the primary living area, demarcated by the beginning of the carpet, any spillover illumination being at the option of the party of the second part (Light Bulb) and not required by the aforementioned agreement between the parties. The aforementioned removal transaction shall include, but not be limited to, the following steps: Section 1. The party of the first part (Lawyer) shall, with or without elevation at his option, by means of a chair, stepstool, ladder or any other means of elevation, grasp the party of the second part (Light Bulb) and rotate the party of the second part (Light Bulb) in a counterclockwise direction, this point being non-negotiable. Section 2. Upon reaching a point where the party of the second part (Light Bulb) becomes separated from the party of the third part ("Receptacle"), the party of the first part (Lawyer) shall have the option of disposing of the party of the second part (Light Bulb) in a manner consistent with all applicable federal, state and local statutes. Section 3. Once separation and disposal have been achieved, the party of the first part (Lawyer) shall have the option of beginning installation of the party of the fourth part ("New Light Bulb"). This installation shall occur in a manner consistent with the reverse of the procedures described in step Section 1 of this self-same document, being careful to note that the rotation should occur in a clockwise direction, this point also being non-negotiable. Note: The above described steps may be performed, at the option of the party of the first part (Lawyer), by any or all persons authorized by him, the objective being to produce the most possible revenue for the party of the fifth part, also known as the "Partnership”.
  17. Things You Can't Say With a Hallmark Card 1. "Congratulations on your wedding day! Too bad no one likes your wife." 2. "I've always wanted to have someone to hold, someone to love. After having met you, I've changed my mind." 3. "I must admit, you brought Religion in my life. I never believed in Hell until I met you." 4. "As the days go by, I think of how lucky I am that you're not here to ruin it for me." 5. "If I get only one thing for Christmas, I hope it's your sister." 6. "As you grow older, Mum, I think of all the gifts you've given me. Like the need for therapy..." 7. "Thanks for being a part of my life! I never knew what evil was before this!" 8. "Congratulations on your promotion. Before you go, would you like to take this knife out of my back? You'll probably need it again." 9. "I'm so miserable without you, it's almost like you're here." 10. "Congratulations on your new bundle of joy. Did you ever find out who the father was?" 11. "You are such a good friend that if we were on a sinking ship and there was only one life jacket... I'd miss you heaps and think of you often." 12. "Your friends and I wanted to do something special for your birthday, so we're having you put to sleep." 13. "How could two people as beautiful you have such an ugly baby?" 14. "Someday I hope to get married, but not to you." 15. "Sorry things didn't work out, but I can't handle guys with boobs that are bigger than mine." 16. "Happy Birthday! You look great for your age...Almost Lifelike! 17. "Congratulations on getting Married! It's not every day you decide to ruin your life!" 18. "I always wanted to be rich, powerful, and well respected. While I'm dreaming, I wish you weren't so damn ugly." 19. "Sex with you is like using drugs. Lots of people do it, but nobody's stupid enough to admit it." 20. "When we were together, you always said you'd die for me. Now that we've broken up, I think it's time you kept your promise." 21. "I knew the day would come when you would leave me for my best friend. So here's his leash, water bowl and chew toys." 22. "We have been friends for a very long time. What say we call it quits?" 23. "If you didn't have any money, I'd still love you. And miss you very much." 24. "Happy Birthday, Uncle Dad!!" (available only in certain select states)

    Thanks Munir Abbasi
  20. Your correct Don, As long as I can remember Mildenhall has always been primarily an airlift/tanker outfit. At the time the 48th TFW at Lakenheath would have been equipped with F-100Ds. Remember standing on the hardstand at Mildenhall watching those 100s come barreling out of low overcast on final to Lakenheath and thinking those pilots are crazy. If memory serves about the only nav aid on the 100 was ADF. I knew Paul Meyer well as he and I were in the same sqd. at one point. He was a hard worker and a good flight line troop. On the other hand, his personal life was a basket case, in part, because he was a very hard drinker.
  21. Yes, it was an interesting article. Thanks for sharing. I'm glad he didn't publish the location. As usual, I found some mistakes in it. For one, there are/were no fighters based at Mildenhall. I've read that the fighters scrambled were from Lakenheath. Don R.

    Financial Advice

    The girl came running in tears to her father. "Dad, you gave me some terrible financial advice!" she cried. "I did? What did I tell you?" said the dad. "You told me to put my money in that big bank, and now that big bank is in trouble." "What are you talking about? That's one of the largest banks in the world," he said. "Surely there must be some mistake." "I don't think so," she sniffed. "They just returned one of my checks with a note saying, 'Insufficient Funds'."
