Do you have a selection of keys Shu? You know...just in case you need a lock or two!

Neat bridge.

When either the guy or girl isn't quite sure they're ready to commit to a relationship, they use one of the tiny luggage zipper padlocks.

Nothing new really. We are training the Polish Airborne guys. We added a "Petting Zoo" I will try and get a couple pic's today of that. I don't have time to go run around down town on our work days. dorf dude...

DD, heard the airborne troops tried to do some tree trimming, and messed quite a few troops up a week ago. Hope none of the guys from your old unit were involved. My brother had the same stuff happen to him at Bragg, when he served with the 82nd. Officers thinking they know more than the NCO's.

These are a few samples of our "Petting Zoo" They are types of IED's and trigger mechanisms. The kind of blurry one is after an explosion the kind of evidence they find at the scene. The belt is what a suicide bomber would wear. dorf dude...

DD -

I assume those were a little new to you since you probably did not find any IEDs from WWI or WWII in you home remodeling. No battaries before WWI, but probably only mechanical.

It looks like an interesting challenge, since they can be different.

This is what our soldiers are up against now. Very low metal content in the triggers. The blasts are wicked. We are helping them so they come back alive. So we hope...

I actually served in an Armor unit. We didn't jump out of planes. Tanks don't drop very well! But yes there was an incident in Hohenfels and many of our troops got hurt a couple weeks ago.

We went out after work last night. We met up with one of the Polish instructors at the Hard Rock Cafe. We ended up in a couple different bars. One was called Propaganda. It was Soviet themed. The date on the cartoons is 1951. Here are a few pics.

I was out for a day walk today. Caught a nice fall morning pic of the Wisa river with balloon launching in the background. The Dragon guards the castle. The dog sculpture is dedicated to our dedicated 4 legged friends. If you zoom in you can read the story of a dog who waited for his master after he died. That's all I got for today, from Krakow, dorf dude...
