Sweet. These old photos are always fascinating and frightening at the same time for me.

Yes. Especially haunting to see Pearl in the months before the attack, and photos with what looks to be Lexington tied up along the end of battleship row.

Does anyone know what the "Bee Hives" are in the Rabaul photo?

They are a couple of small islands in the bay.

Excellent. Thanks so much.

Isn't the mom part sooo true? Anytime someone asks what you do and you tell them, they think you're on an X-Box shooting zombies.

Speaking about ASL years ago:

friends: ah...you play something similar Risk...
mom: are you still playing with toy soldiers? Do you know that you are not a baby anymore?
wife: Do you still buy this crap?
me (left) and Rick (nice American guy): two years ago playing a tournament

When I found this image immediately became my sign
