The funny thing is, I am 6'-4", 215 pounds, but like I stated before, I love Red Meat, Burgers, fries and my Micro Brews.

The years have taken its toll on my body in more ways than one. I would rather be twenty again, then going through what I am right now at 47.

As for the original topic, I have seen Dead Fronts, with what must have been twenty layers of paint, that we would work on in some spaces. I swear that just for grins, Supply would paint some spaces that were XO, CO, Fleet Admiral at least every six months.

I loved when you would pull the panels, to do the PM's on the gaskets, or do a circuit trace, and those in charge of that space you were working in, would complain either that you got their nice shiny Brass greasy or dirty, or chipped the paint, when you pulled the cover off of a panel.

When I joined the Navy at 19, I was 6'-6" and weighed 145 pounds. Almost didn't pass the physical because they said I was underweight. When I got out 8 years later, I still weighed the same. That was 40 years ago, and I'm now a whopping 170.

I get what aging does to a person, since I am nearly 20 years older than you. But it's still just a number; I went to the academy and became a police officer when I was 49. The wife and I started building our log home by ourselves when I was 60. Now, if I could only remember where I put my keys.

I went in at around 148, but was athletic, so had no issues with the being underweight. Of course being skinny, made me the one chosen most times to go into areas that others could not, due to I could wiggle in and back out.

Always hated having to go to shaft alley. You could barely stand up if you were over 5'-6", when you got sent down there to replace a sensor, fuse, alarm relay, etc..
