    I found my old CF work jacket they gave me. Along with a pile of shirts and pants. I didn't wear it much...still in good shape. (like new). I think i will start wearing again, as it is a nice jacket. It has this patch on it. It brings back a lot of good memories to me.:1036316054:

    The day we were allowed to get our personal belongings our TM was generous. He gave me handfuls of pens, notepads, patches… basically anything we wanted cause he said it was going to the dumpster.:woot:I was told they scrap the copier, which was a newer one, big bucks. Heard they took a hammer to it so no one could use it, then threw it in the dumpster.:chairshot: What a waste!!! I did get a torpedo heater from him but Shhh!! It’s a secret!!! :1036316054:

    Well one of these days all that stuff might be worth lots of money.Look at what some of the old stuff is going for now days. Be nice if your holding thousands or millions of dollars.
    Better hide it My wife burnt some magazines that was printed during WW2.

    We had a certain person at our place… and I will leave at that a certain person got a second mortgage and bought a whole bunch of stock just before the closing. Talk about a double edge sword!!! Loose your job plus the stock going bad. Greed or money does funny things to people.

    I left long before the shutdown (1968) but still have safe driving patches,tie clip and so forth. Also have set of double trailers and tank tractor trailer that are metal with rubber rolling wheels,doors open on trailers and dolly separates. We paid $2.00 for them when they were offered,should have bought cases of them!! Have short segment of the turbine truck ready to leave for Portland I need to transfer to DVD.

    If there are any intact trailers in your area that you know about, maybe the new owner would let you have the signs if you were willing to remove them.
