    Somehow I lost a couple years. Just the other day I went to write the date and got to the year and started it with 19...I knew it was wrong but it took me several minutes to figure out what was wrong. I just hope it’s not a sign of my mental decline.

    I can help with your metal decline. I used to do a lot of work in corrosion prevention.

    And I have a lot of experience with corrosion resistant HSLA steels like Exten & Corten Steels.

    My experience is more researchy. Mostly aerospace coatings and novel materials. We should start a consulting business.

  10. There is an acidic coating excreted by the human body that when applied liberally to Corten steel will turn it a beautiful swirly green after a couple applications.

    Just after the most recent turn of the century one of my co-workers couldn't stop pronouncing the new year as "Nineteen-Two-Thousand". The humor wore thin after a few months though...

  13. Frank Loving (seated) stares down Levi Richardson (gun behind his back), Dodge City, KS 1879. Frank Loving (born in Mo) had a well deserved reputation as a gunman; Levi Richardson did not. Loving went after Richardson for having an affair with Loving's wife. They bucked heads all day & into the evening, culminating when Richardson shot Loving in the back mortally wounding him. Richardson was acquitted for murder based on the fearful reputation Loving had. Richardson then left Dodge City, hung up his gun & became a preacher man.

    Frank Loving was only 29 yrs old. He wore quite the hat & jacket that day. It is unknown to history what happened to his wife. Other individuals unidentified.

    Well, she sold her mole to Cindy Crawford...
     
  17. But Miss Kitty was a natural redhead so she had plenty of moles & freckles only Matt saw.

  18. The original picture of Billy the Kid that sold at auction in 2011 to Bill Koch for $2.3M ($2M + $300K BP). Preauction estimates were just $500K. There were 5 active bidders with 2 dropping out at $1M.

    Pic here has been enlarged. The original is approximately the size of a business card. Printed in reverse, the Kid was actually right handed.
