    TE: This is not a nudist forum, so pardon me if I do not "bare" with you. I might be willing to "bear" the inadvertent suggestion, though.

    Troy,

    Welcome!

    I see you have met Mr. Miller. You will find him to be very helpful and entertaining if you don't take it personally.

    Where in S.C. are you? Are you a home inspector?

    Beautiful place with a lot of history, very seldom does a summer pass that I don't visit, even if it is only a long weekend. One of my favorite stories, from one of the tours, is where the " freezing the balls off of a brass monkey" came from.

    This piece of alleged history explains that in the olden days of sailing ships, cannon balls were stacked on the decks on brass plates called "monkeys." The plates had indentions in them that held the balls on the bottoms of the stacks. Brass, however, expands and contracts with the temperature and if it got cold enough, the cannon balls could fall...giving real foundation to the phrase "cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey!"
