Default Now that is a wrench

Went the San Jacinto Monument with my Fiance today and went on the Battleship Texas. I had not been in about 10 years and it was fun to go.









Was fun looking at the engine room. It was originally a coal powered ship, with the longest range at the time it was built. Later it was convert over to oil. I forget the HP rating but it was run by two four cylinder engines with cylinder walls 7 feet wide. I forgot to take pictures as I was enjoying looking at the machine work. I did get a kick out of the wrenches, pipe tools, etc on top deck. I've had friends in the armed services as well some that work oil and I always get a kick out the size of some of the tools.

God no. This is not the same girl. That one was a ..(fill in your favorite word here).... this one is great. The kind that tells me that I need to go out and race and do things.

I can see this has gone way off topic.

When you get old, things from the past are better remembered than yesterday. Just remembered how you were so upset when that happened.

Glad to see it all worked out. As I remember, the earlier one was chunky.
