    "Hello Sailor TMH"

    What's the TMH stand for? "Take Me Home"

    Every now and then we'd have a stripper at the Officer's Club at Ft Ord, CA. One night, a particularly... eccentric young lady had a couple of tequila shooters... maybe a couple too many actually. One of our shyest young pilots (really, they exist) stepped up to the stage and offered to help her down and take her home.

    "Yes, yes." she slurred. "Take me home. Take me home AND MAKE ME WRITE BAD CHECKS!"

    He never lived it down.

    The owners of "Hello Sailor, TMH" have two charities they support per webpage. Lobstermen's Relief Fund and Out Maine.

    10% of all proceeds from our Lobster Collection will be donated to the Lobstermen’s Relief Fund in Maine - this worthy cause supports lobstermen's families in need and we are glad to help. You can help too by purchasing an item or two from this collection. Donations will be made on a quarterly basis. Check back often for new additions to this nascent collection. Check their website here: Lobstermen's Relief Fund


    10% of purchases through June 30th 2019 from our Sailor and Take Me Home Collections will be donated to Out Maine based in Rockland. Check out their site to read about the good work they are doing for our community : OUT MAINE

    No it was a new construction, special purpose building. Very nice actually and right across the parking lot from the newly constructed BOQ.

    We used to go by Stilwell Hall every day on our morning run. We always wondered why such a huge building was never used for anything at all. I just learned from Wikipedia that is was condemned for asbestos and lead paint and was torn down entirely in 2003. Before it fell into the Pacific.

    The best statement I've seen from this latest carnage came from a student who lived through it -

    What's happened to the rest of Ft Ord? Park land? Public beach?

    It is a national monument, and a new branch of Cal State University CSUMB https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cali...,_Monterey_Bay
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Ord

    There is a lot of land there that has been mostly left alone, protected from development by the Fort.

    A lovely place, I can see it from here.
    When Reagan was in charge there were low flying military helicopters right over our house looking for pot plants... Nasty that.
    As long ago as I can remember there was live artillery practice into the bay, we would lie in bed and listen to cannon fire late into the evening. There was a large area on the Monterey Bay chart marking that as a prohibited area. Because of that it was ripe fishing grounds. On fog bound evenings there was a continuous cat and mouse game with local anchovie fisherman trying for a catch and the military chasing them off.

    Fritzsche Army Airfield is now Marina Municipal Airport but kept the old airport code "OAR".

    The Fort itself is all kinds of things - civilian housing, commercial enterprises, primary, secondary and university education, state park, National Monument and a small military facility.

    On Google maps, I found the old O' Club and BOQ buildings that were on a hilltop with a great view. Abandoned and derelict. Too bad, it's a great location.

    I found my old house on Remagen Way or more precisely where it used to be.

    WOW. Nice redevelopment! The Army didn't have quarters like that even for general officers.

    This one on Ardennes Circle was typical and is literally just around the corner from the one above.

    Most of the streets were named for WWII battles.

    The Army I would guess. A makeshift breakwater, trying to stop the erosion so they could demolish the building before if fell off the cliff.

    Chester, Nova Scotia - a small town on Nova Scotia's South Shore (and epicentre of yacht racing in the province for a hundred years or more) - has announced a new Junior 'C' level hockey team, entitled the "Castaways". Their logo is bound to be showing up on clothing this coming year. Looks kinda like what you folks are talking about above...

    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.
