You must not have too many boat chores to be able to post TWO videos!!

Ha, someone deleted the second video after I posted this.

Chickenhawk? That's one of my favourites! I actually had to buy a second copy when I lent the first one out (& never got it back).

Shortlist of the best Vietnam War books (IMO):
Dustoff- Mike Novosel
Low Level Hell- Hugh Mills
When Thunder Rolled- Ed Rasimus
A Lonely Kind of War- Marshall Harrison
Phantom Over Vietnam- John Trotti

Then you can read them while ignoring those pop rivets.

Mark it looks like your new plan for things to do involves Peeping Tom practice (does Peeping Tom cross over to Aussie talk). :-)

Guess this is OK and we look forward to watching the videos as you get better at it!

The duck is nice. He got his come-uppance today - he got washed. He is now hanging off the lower shrouds by his wings. So tonight I actually get to take his place

I was going to mention that Ducky looked a little grungy.

If I was you, I know how I'd spend a good chunk of my time.....

I also had to buy myself a second copy of Chickenhawk.
Other faves from my extensive Nam book collection include 'To Bear Any Burden', 'Meditations in Green' and 'Once a Warrior King'

Great video guys
