    I was also a SUBSAFE certifier ...
    if your boat left the Shipyard, you most certainly got a "visit" from me,
    else you were not certified "Ready for Sea" ...
    I bet your Captain knew who I was ... and regretted it.

    You forgot the Co2 Scrubbers and Oxygen Generator ...
    One of my shipmates was killed when a cell in the O2 Generator exploded ...
    We kept his body in cold storage for the rest of the patrol ...

    You recall a story by Hemingway ...was somewhere in the snows of Europe,
    the old farmer's wife had died, and he had to keep her in the ice-cold shed out back,
    until Spring, when the ground was soft enough to bury her ... over time, he got to hanging
    his lantern on one of her frozen appendages ... handy handle.

    Anyway, my dead shipmate got to be that sort of dark humor for the mess-cooks ...
    who were always going in and out of the cold storage for supplies ... Handly, think his name was!

    Yeah, we called the O2 gen "the bomb", probably because of your Coen Brothers experience.
    Had a fire in ours once. A gang chief had it out in a minute.
    I just had to open the breaker in Machinery 2 upper level. Then take deep breaths.

    Governor Ron DeSantis stupidly not only was very hesitant to lock down the entire state, but also kept all churches open. Never mind the fact this is Holy Week; most churches are able to live stream services and record them for their congregations to watch online later. Fortunately three counties (including mine) had enough brains to issue local lockdowns, so my sister's three kids were already not going to school and my appointments for a pedicure, mammogram, and dental repairs were canceled. A neurology appointment I was supposed to have last week is postponed, but that was my mom's decision, not mandatory.

    Anyway, thank you for replying to this thread. I was worried nobody else was interested. Now it is almost Easter, so I regret not trying to log in a week ago. I forgot the date my account was scheduled to become active again. Oh well, at least I am here now. There are verses that work in isolation. I have seen several websites with a Verse of the Day feature and was thinking about doing that here, but getting cute with all the numbers instead of doing it randomly.

    Wow, you two have some interesting experiences to talk about. I have been to Seattle, but had no idea it is a military base.
