So do I Audrey, That is a Philodendron Tree and that picture was taken at Bok Tower on one of our trips to Fl. I really love Tropical plants and try to bring some home when I travel South. I haven't picked up a Philo Tree yet but I will one of these days.

Holly it has been great meeting you and sharing some of your memories and hobbies with you. I, too, wanted to scuba dive but health said no even in my youth...snorkeling was the best I could do. Living as I did in Calif. I got to snorkel some of the underwater cliffs and ledges that butted up against the coastline in areas. Seeing all the marine life that lived there amazed me.

Yes, I am an only child. My Mom was one of six girls I think she wanted to be able to give me things that she didn't have growing up. She had a wonderful family my Grandparents were so good and all the sisters are very close. When I was a child I spent a lot of time playing with my cousins. We have a big family get together twice a year. I don't spend a lot of time together now that we all have our own families but "The Aunts" keep us all updated on what is going on with everyone.

No Mama, I grew up in the city, never moved out to the country until I was in my early 20's. I haven't moved far from where I was born either the city I lived in is about 15 miles away.

So sorry Mama, I just built the units didn't travel with them. They were mostly for military field hospitals and battalion aid stations. Some were also deployed to natural disaster sites, If I was working overtime then something bad was going on somewhere.
The big field hospitals came with everything you would need to set up a hospital in the fields. From the tents, stoves, beds, linens, to a dentist chair, surgical instruments, drugs. Metal surgical rooms that could be flown in and set in place by a chopper. We also built smaller units like first aid kits, medical backpacks for medics and survival vests for pilots.

so when a disaster is occurring somewhere in america (or the world) there are people like you who are putting together the whole kit and kaboodle? and on the other end is a team who know how to set it up? but you are saying you ship a whole " building" ready built? are they metal buildings? i guess i thought a structure on site would be used. anyway i am sorry to belabor the point but it is fascinating to me that you did this.

Most of it went out in big tri-walls or metal chests that were pallitized some very large boxes or wooden crates. The denist chair was sent out in a wooden crate that unbolted and when the sides were laid flat they made the floor for the denist to stand on. The metal operating rooms were seavans (body of a tractor trailer) that we filled up with the supplies and trucks would come and take them away. They are loaded by crane. Most of the time we made resupply sets that up dated the meds and materials that had shelf life. Mostly it was just the material and they would set up in structures on site that were avaiable or use huge tents. Just like in the old MASH movie. The seavans and tents would make up the structure. Most of the time these hospitals and kits were stored in wharehouses around the world waiting for an emergency and sent out when needed. But during certain times our supplies went directly out to the troops or disaster location. Sometimes we would get a rush order and then a few days later we would hear on the news of some spot where there was trouble and the troops were deployed.
