    Yep, I hated having the "duty" or on call(depending what part of the state you`re from)the State Police ckts and the FAA drove us crazy in the wee hours of the morning. I was in Harrisburg and did work the eastern(Phila area for a while)and KofP for a short time and the pay was good, very good!! Yep, I forgot about the "tearouts" when we had to update a C.O. --- a lot of stuff thrown out, or sold to some of the small independent companies around at that time.

    If you Dad is still around give him a Hi from a Bell guy in Hrbg

    This made me remember the fun of going into the COs with my dad to sneak a ride on those wooden rolling ladders past the wiring and stuff. The ones with a metal sign that said "look up" or something like that.

    Bill, nice talking to ya - I`ll tell him.

    I was at KofP for just a bit after college - the coin center. Even THAT paid pretty well .

    Hey TT could you tell me off the cuff, why one of my knees feels almost like its miniscus is slipping out on long car rides? Its a weird feeling, not sure if I described it right lol! Its a combo of stiff knee, almost feels dislocated, but its not, weird feeling.

    I wish I could, honestly - in reality, though, it`s really tough to make a diagnosis without examining a joint. If I had to say, I`d be a little concerned about your ACL - that often accounts for a "sagging" feeling when your knee is relaxed and extended?
    Sorry I couldn`t be of more help!

    I miss my toys being sealed in blisters. Got any GI Joe blisters laying around so I can seal them back up.

    Do you sell any of those anti-theft clamshells that needs a utility knife to open? If so, I may have cursed at you/your company many times.

    At some high-end pros hourly rate of $100/hour for paint polishing/correcting you might come close. Only problem, you would probably need to polish 12-16hrs per day, six days a week
