    Hello All,

    Have been tracking my old Navy ship, the USS Pyro AE-24, as she came out of mothball at the end of January and is slowly making her way from Mare Island, CA to Southern Recycling in New Orleans for scrap. She is in the process as I write, of making it through the locks at the Panama Canal. This site and the user's here have been an enormous amount of help to me, as I have 200+ shipmates that are relying on me to post info, links, pictures, etc. of this final journey of hers. I feel as though I am standing my last watch for the ol' girl. This has been one of the most emotional things I have been through in many years. It's an honor, yet heartbreaking.

    I am grateful for this group and the many who have been so helpful already.

    Some of which turn out to be true and accurate on occasion!

    Nothing worse than being on I-95 with a semi in the right lane, a car with Ontario plates in the center lane and a Virginia white hair in the left lane....all doing 53 in 60 mph zone. Your are stuck behind the white hair....and then a car with Quebec plates passes you in the left breakdwon lane.

    That has happened to me at least 3 times in the last 3 years.

    Boy, are you in the wrong place. Here? We drive you insane enough to empty every scotch bottle that you can find. This place is as democratic as you want it to be. Just make sure you leave $20 at the door. $100 if you want to win the vote.

    Welcome, mate!
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.
