From: "Ernest Lutz" <ewlutzaol.com>
I'm the other Butch (not knowing that my real name was Ernest until I hit first grade).
Grew up below New Orleans and have spent the last 33 years in the various components of the Army in one capacity or another--full and part time--civilian and green suit.
Work in the 5 sided puzzle palace, was there on Sept 11....walked out in civilian clothes, came back the next day in uniform and didn't take the uniform off until the end of last month.
My thing here is narrow gage railroads to support the field army. The Elizabeth character is named after my eldest daughter who died as an infant.
Other obsession is our 1955 Flxible VL-100 motorhome conversion---35 ft bus....interesting adventures this summer and hope to bring her to Mannington soon.
