    Are you sure that's a wise idea with both Smith AND Ryan as commissioned officers? :D

                  Boys,
                  The last time I saw Smith and Ryan together at W-64 , they were being
                  pellted with ice and snow balls for "robbing " the local farmer. Ham and
                  cabbage , as I recall. I'm in !!

                  Regards,

                    Kevin and all,
                    What a raw work day. The only thing more depressing than the
                    weather was to see the damage done. The overall feeling was very upbeat
                    about the repairs. They "will" be completed soon, including the "CR" chimney.
                    A test run in two weeks, at the 140TH COI.

                      Craig,

                      Several of us are discussing offline what to do about the racoon family that's taken up residence in one of the huts. However, regardless of the action taken, they'll be gone or evicted by W64. :)

                        Sgt Ryan of the 140th NY made our membership aware of the residents inhabiting the hut. He stated that Scott Schotz would probably have somthin to do with eviction notice. In fact our company COI will take place on these very grounds and with any luck, they might find it conveniant to leave by then. Dont know if these were the gentlemen you referred to, but that is the info that I have to pass along.

                          I wonder if that Momma Coon remembers eating any frozen solid pickled eggs about 14 months ago? They'd have been pink, and encased in a block of ice....
