It's crass but you asked.

For general discussion about almost anything missiles. Come on in, pull up a chair and let's talk about any missile related matters and missile news not covered in other forums.

It's crass but you asked.

Postby JohnMollison on Mon Nov 17, 2014 5:47 pm

Missileers -

I'm taking a bit of a risk here but I feel it's worth it because a few of you have asked for it and I have no better way to respond efficiently.

A. I've put my artwork on specialties like mugs, apparel and shower curtains. So far, the MM III, MM II and Titan II are represented.
If any of this is of interest for you for holiday gifts or purchases, go to: http://www.cafepress.com/johnmollisonart

B. I've also updated my artwork to include customization options.
If any of this is of interest for the same reasons, go to: http://johnmollison.com/JohnMollison.co ... rs%21.html

The MM I is almost done and next up is the Atlas.

If you are interested in my MM I write up, go to my website, www.johnmollison.com and click on the blue star.

In the meantime, I'm really having a blast writing about your service...and thank you for the exceptional welcome that y'all have given me over the years. Though it kinda scares me because if I ever meet you in real life, I'll end up buying at least the first two rounds.

Only "two rounds"? Clearly he doesn't know us...
I have been to the site and have puchased a polo shirt and Mug (LG) with the MM III on it. I would have bought the T-Shirt as well if he had centered and lowered it about 6 inches on the tee. (JK).

There is something very "Hitchcockian" about an ICBM Shower Curtain, methinks.

My wife started out as a maintenance officer (CTT), hurt her back, was moved over to PA, where at some point heard a TE called a "transported erection", which could happen to a guy in the shower with a missile curtain.

Clearly we are all woefully under employed "Stand-Up Comics." Great material, narrow audience demographic.

Went out to walk my dog and thought of an odd thought (I'm a TOOTer, when I consider them, I'm a COOTer) re: The Groobers. They missed a bet for a song: Little Deuce Troop (I'm a little Deuce Troop, you don't know what I got). Most of us don't understand Sylvania talk. Of course, they didn't speak Sylvania themselves, nor Titan. (They came to Whiteman in late '75, shortly after I had my first few alerts.)

Guys -

I am SO outside of your culture, your mystique, your tribe.

But when I listened to The Groobers version of "Little Boxes," I laughed out loud because it portrayed your brotherhood in a way that anyone could appreciate.

You may be happy to know I was a Standboard Weenie. Or not.

I got two Minuteman III mugs (lg), one Stein, and a polo shirt. I am a happy camper.
