Nowhere.....Just here in East Texas.
Some years ago, I was the lead mechanic and rental equipment shop supervisor, and I got to work many times an hour to half an hour before anyone else. I'd cut on the air compressors, the the heater or fans, start a pot of coffee and sort through my paperwork and such make my lists for the day.

One morning, I thought I kept hearing a kitten's meow. At first I just thought I was hearing things since I was in the shop area and no one else was there yet.. After about ten minutes, I figured there was a cat or a kitten somewhere around. I finally found him, hiding out in a 3" water/trash pump inlet! He was solid black and tiny! I looked high and low around the shop because I figured he must have some others with him or the momma cat. Never found any others.

I brought him home and he's been here for about eight or nine years now. Wife named him Jasper.

Not where you are
Usually pretty much every day I can see these types of things at work.
Some cooler than others for sure.

Yep. Love the Mustang. Used to be a show with Robert Conrad about “Pappy” and his crew during WW2 called Black Sheep Squadron. I watched it every chance I got.

There were better* planes in WWII, but for pure sexieness the P-38 is tops in my book.


*better as in a specific task, but the P-38 could do it all and do it well.
