Welcome aboard Bill Wasil
« on: January 04, 2009, 05:49:10 PM »
Everyone a buddy of mine (and he's not even a TM) has joined us.  Bill Wasil served on the Blueback, Barb, Grant, and Greenfish.  He qualified back in 1965 on the Blueback.  Bill was a STS3 (SS) Sonor Tech - though I'm sure he can't hear much these days. :2funny:

Bill in I worked together out in California where Bill still lives. 

So how about a big Welcome Above to Bill.  Let the fun begin now.  Some day if we ever get a picture posted of Bill you will see he looks a lot like Kenny Rogers - the Gambler! :crazy2:

Darrin - we got us another one of those STS guys to pick on!  :knuppel2:

Cool.  I sent him an email after his registration approval to verify it was a real email address.  I didn't recognize his name and the email address sounded odd.  My apologies.  :)

A strange SONARGIRL :2funny:

Well welcome aboard Bill and stay a while, IF you can pitch in with some help with some of the crews that are trying to restore their boats. While you don't have to do much from your computer it is always nice to lend a hand if possible on the boats if ya can't no problem, dig out your old qual notes and see what you can remember because I am sure these guys have a lot of things that they would like to have help with.

Just so he knows, his username is "Bil Wasil" not "Bill Wasil".  I can change that though, but I'll have to reset his password.

Oh, and I see he's a fellow USSVI Lockwood Internet Base member.

Lance,

Thanks for getting me set up here.   I appreciate your help getting me on board.

A word of caution..............John Theotonio's comments regarding this old sonarman are tainted.  He tries to make me sound old and forgetful..............................................what was I saying?

Well you can if that's what you want to use for your avatar, but you can use ANYTHING you like or nothing at all.  It's up to you.  I mean, you see what John is using for his avatar.  lol
