<quoted text>hey Rick, any chance ya got another u-boat book?
No sir, Just have to GOOGLE it like everyone else:)
Even when I had all my books displayed,didn't have any on that part of history:( I sure could have never done it,to confining,to much pressure, being thrown over board a few hundred feet UNDER water also seems a bit backwards. Rick

<quoted text>not the same Rick I thought you were?
Yes, I assumed that or You were a former sailor,so I just always play along anyway :)
Is why I am never belligerent to others also :) That way I don't have to pick or choose why someone might want or need to "call me out" :) Yes I did notice "Rick" here before.:)
I also posted something silly here once,with about every type of obvious sailor reference
one could make :) & always figured that may come back to bite me :)
Hey I tried though,I DID post YELLOW SUBMARINE for you once:) No harm no foul:) Rick
