A little underwater tunage.
Anyone else can post their shots on/in/under the water here, doesn't have
to be just moi.
How about a random shot of a guy in a freezer below the ocean.
Photo taken at about -4 degrees fahrenheit at a depth below sea level of less than/equal/greater than 400 feet. : )
This one evolved into something interesting. Taken about a year before what I have to say next.
The guy on the left ended up dying in a car accident racing on a wet Washington state highway. RIP my brother.
The guy on the right tried out for the San Diego Chargers in 2003 and 2004. He was on TV in the pre-season.
This is where you eat at mealtime, or hang out and do other things at other times.
The guy in the middle with spiked-like hair would/will always fall asleep instantly, no matter
where he was at.
This was not long before he dozed off yet again. (The only place he didn't fall
asleep that I know of was the freezer...)
Ha ha! CTroy got KP duty. (Or the naval equivalent, thereof).Originally Posted by CTroyMathis
Nah, I just knew he was doing freezer breakouts so I opened the door
and peeked in. Wanted a photo of it. It's usually humorous seeing a
guy buried in the freezer trying to find 1lb of bacon stuffed in a freezer coil!
Here's a picture of my grandfather in about 1937, he was a radio operator on the
USS Augusta, flagship of the US Asiatic Fleet. They protected US interests in China
and along the Yangtze River prior to the Japanese invasion. Ever see the movie
Sand Pebbles or Empire of the Sun? (Sorry for the double exposure).
What a cool photo.
I have some old photos of my grandfather in the 40s doing the SeaBee thing during WWII.
Also, numerous photos of two uncles and my father in Vietnam.
Some of the Vietnam ones are quite humorous - gotta scan them sometime.
Mmmm, beans... a number ten can even.
Is this officer hazing...? Heh.
Revenge of the Nerds: "That's My Pie!"
Geez, interesting to see that the Navy hasn't really changed in 70 years.
I have some programs and newsletters regarding ritualized torture and other
weird ship-board practices during equator crossings and other events from
Regarding previous picture, I don't think the photo was an intential double
Always an uber-citygeek, had a Seattle picture at my "quasi-office" and a photo of San Diego on one of the 'puters.
The "office" is in one of these kind of food stores modules that is empty from mass-consumption...heh.
Don't have much to say about this one... just another day.
Saving cardboard, etc. under these modules because I said so...
Sending trash to the bottom of the sea is what is happening there. Fish food, yum.
Next up, Chief Mathis' pizza/calzone night underwater every Saturday.
Bunch of nucs volunteering to come forth to put out weekly greatness with moi:
More "Galley" stuff later... that's just me and my volunteer crew's time to shine.
I strongly felt a sleeper needed some company...
The boat's Doc learned to not leave a practice IV laying around in front of me ever again...
That's what he gets for dancing half-nekkid to "Rollercoaster" on a table asking for tips.
San Francisco Fleet Week. (Not personally taken, but, was there.)
Hey, the food stores guy and a bag o'onions... I want some French Onion Soup!
And, frozen breakouts for the next day. Saturday lunch is always burger day.
Keepin' the morale up by cleaning the Coke machine...
"Field Day" or clean-everything-up-day is every Saturday before lunch.
23 cookies, 1 freaky cook, and 1 cook with a chew in his mouth... in the Galley. Write him up!
Guess where the 24th cookie went....!
Again... same dudes, same chew, same day, burger day, cookies for lunch, pizza at midnight... Every Saturday.
Guy on the left is from Houston and married to an Indonesian woman.
Guy on the right is from Mars and is unmarried...
Wow, cool pics! It doesn't look quite as cramped as I would have thought it would be.
Dallas uber alles
