    I remember this vessel, it was docked in my home town for quite a while. Young sailors use it as a learning tool.

    Well heck! When I cook eggs and chopped up wieners together , my bride says I'm not right. I'll have to show her this picture of a Russian breakfast. Oh, by the way, what is the soup made from? Looks like a small chicken leg in there. ;-).

    Glad you made it home safely Alex. I had a great time talking to you, and so did my Dad when you stayed with him in Yuma. Maybe someday I will see you again .:deal
