The New York is her sister ship, LPD 21, which used 24 tons of steel from the WTC to fabricate part of the bow. A photo of her is below.
Bravo Zulu Mike!
Back to the Joke Thread....
Here's an old one but still a funny one....
A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email address!!!!
A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter.
They planned to stay at the same hotel where they had spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.
Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to co-ordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Orlando, Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day.
The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his
room, so he decided to send an email to his wife.
However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the email.
Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory following a sudden heart attack.
The widow decided to check her email expecting sympathetic messages from relatives and friends.
After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted. The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother lying on the floor and saw the computer screen which read:
To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I've Arrived
Date: October 16, 2005
I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked in.
I've seen that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow.
Looking forward to seeing you then!!!!
Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
P.S. Sure is freaking hot down here!!!!
