    Well bar-tack my gussets looky there! The fabric of new conversation, a pattern finely embroidered without any bias, hemming or us seaming to bolt from the room, and nary a cross stitch between us.

    The Ms. and I were Civil War Reinactors in the 116th Pennsylvania Infantry. We campaigned directly under U. S. Grant and spouse [Julia] as W.T. Sherman and [Eleanor]. She made our perfectly accurate period clothing, my job was locating all the materials and fastenings. It was quite an education. That historical period has a lot of the industrial revolution in it, where the populace began to receive benefit, such as machine made clothing overtook handmade as desirable.

    How'd our readers like my little snip of movie script?

    yikes your old!!!!Grant was a little before my tyme,but you were in your pencillvaina infancy so I reckon your not too old.... I do love history and all the sweet and wicked stuff that built the world we now and seems to be also destroying....one day at a time...well not so fond of the world&civilization destruction stuff..the building of everything from the first alloyed materials( including alloyed humans and other critters), to the modern everything we have today.but the old stuff is more interesting to me.thats the stuff that got us hear slowly and steady and a few spurts hear and there of revelation and reinvention. it seems now days true craftsmanship is about exstink in somany areas. but there still are some very talented craftsmen out there...somewhere. I wish I still had it.but I know I don't.well in some areas I do.

    And the amount of fingerprints has only increased exponentially since then. My understanding is that they have many buildings full of them now, and the civillian and military prints have been separated. The prints were all classified in those days and filed using "The Henry System," which was a a very involved formula for classification. Nowadays fingerprints are classified using the NCIC method with 2 letters or a 2 digit number for each print. I was trained classification and how to search for prints but it has been too many years ago now to remember all of it. I did the darkroom work making all the enlargements for court testimony etc.

    Where did the phrase "****load" of dimes or whatever come from?
