A friend of mine, Judy Schmidt, and I landed Civil Service jobs in the Western Union Office at Camp Carson 'way back during WWII. Many of the GI's were coming home from overseas and their 1st request was to send a telegram home 'now' to their families. Our office was headed by a Sergeant, and Judy and I were posted on the board with our hours as "Schmidt-Nix". Another soldier drove us in a special jeep to various sites at the camp to take down telegrams to be sent to loved ones. Our name became well-known and, when the jeep was in sight, we could hear shouts, "Here come Schmidt-Nix!" Tons of memories about that time in my life. Oh, something about smuggling an officer in the trunk of my big Dodge car off base .... never mind!

Let's get to Nicki.
