Jim Matuska General WOW - Nice looking E7 and scene! 5/18/2011 9:50:02 AM
Jim Satterwhite General I'm reminded of the original novel entitled "MASH" where it describes how Trapper John got his name. Seems he made an advance on a young lass in the lavatory of a Boston and Maine train and when they were discovered, she rushed out screaming "He trapped me". Thanks for the memories. 5/18/2011 4:30:48 PM
