    I've been loading photos of the Space Station on the Boeing employee and retired page on Facebook, so far only done 15 of 155. It's going to be a long process and I'm really glad was able to receive them. Have the blueprints for the Integrated Equipment Assembly, IEA that I was lead Structure Mechanic in addition to lead for all the electrical systems. We built 4 modules that holds solor array panels and altogether we built 12 modules. Of the 365 foot truss Tulsa did 290 feet of structure, the remainder was done by Rocketdyne in Huntington Beach California.

    It was the best program I worked on in my 24 year career.

    I will post photos on a new special thread.

    International Space Station Photos.

    Marion Watkins and I counted 52 Structure Mechanics that worked in our Bubble. The work area had huge heavy duty sheeting from the ceiling to a 10 foot high walls. We had to maintain air quality monitoring with partical counters, there was a tent large enough to fit over IEA 350 assembly where Rocketdyne tube welders worked on the Ammonia tubing for coolant for Cold Plates.

    I thought you guys might like to see them.

    Cynthia and I are going to move October 24th to another apartment in Tulsa. Rent here is going up and the new apartment is less than what we are paying now. The bedroom for the layout is larger so I can expand it a little bit.

    Thought I would give you an update on Cynthia, she still has a trech in her throat and has a doctor appointment on January 12th to see when they plan to remove it. She hasn't had to use oxygen since March 4th 2020 and is doing great. We are hoping they can remove the trech real soon because both of us are tired of the maintenance it requires. I haven't heard her real voice since December 13th 2019.

    Cynthia's doctor appointment was rescheduled for March 11th, seams like we have delay after delay and it doesn't change. We are both upset with her doctor, this is the second time it was moved. It never seams to end. Will be thrilled when she has the trech removed, can't come soon enough.

    I've been playing 8 ball pool online lately and winning 3 out of 4 games. It's a lot of fun. If you are interested the app is on Google play. The app has a button where you can challenge friends.

    JOE -- Please forgive an old, stupid person! I had not read this thread except for the first few posts.
    I was totally oblivious to the trials and tribulations that you and Cindy have faced with the moves and health problems.
    I hope that things start to improve for you both ... God Bless.

    Thank you Sherrel. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Really miss working on my N scale layout but have been piddling with windows for the HO Ft. Scott Depot. Ordered some more yesterday afternoon and they should arrive on February 9th.

    Hi guys, I'm back after a month long absence. My phone was stolen March 24th and wasn't able to get a replacement until April 1st. The creep who took it has tried to get dates with a couple of lady friends and even ask for nude photos from another girl friend. I reported it stolen about 15 minutes after I realized it was gone and had it locked shortly after but the damage had already been done. My phone carrier searched it's location and gave it to the police but don't know if anything was done with it.

    Thank you Keith and Tom for helping me get back online !!!
