I was researching some blogs on children with special needs. Trying to figure out how much you reveal and what is kept close to the heart. My goal is not to have a hundred back pats a day, but to deliver a message of how life affects me and mine…I LOVE movies; Grilling and Chilling; my husband (often refered to as the Hubster, Hubbs or PL; I heart my kids but not everything they do…; I miss my family, especially my sisters, who ALL need to be institutionalized! and my brothers (although not as much after the living hell they made my life); I miss alumni functions ( Spelman girl, West Virginia University;and all of the folks at the airport that I have worked with for the last 20 years…That was my first job out of college and I LOVED it!!! There is nothing more exciting than jumpstarting an engine, coupling up electric or planning weight and balance on a widebody load! Just the thoughts of it make my stomach twist and my arms get a little tingly.
If you have never sat in the cockpit of an aircraft with the runway in front of you, 2 stories off the ground, hundreds of lives behind you and nothing but rows of lights in front of you…guiding you to flight and to faraway destinations, then you haven't lived. That is positively the most EXCITING, knuckle curling, heart stopping rush you will ever experience. The thought that this machine, made of metal; wire; rubber; cloth and plastic can lift it's weight, the weight of the fuel, bags and passengers, on simply air.
Anyhoo, I digress…
Found a "fabolous" web site that has lots of rhythm and soul to down load…If funk is your thing, than THIS is a must visit! How my old mind wanders! LOL! Tomorrow part " of Altered Books for Dummies ( or the craftily challenged, ie :me!)
Last by the way…If you have never flown International First Class…save your change and treat yourself…! (ok, just a tid bit for you to enjoy) My husband and I flew to Houston Texas, caught a jumbo jet to Honolulu, HAWAII (sorry ;-)) once on board, we were given mimosas. Once the aircraft had leveled out , it …was…ON!!! Out came the tailored flight attendants with warm napklins before the meal, then…came breakfast. Your choice of eggs… fresh fruit, yogurt,more mimosa! , potatoes, sausage, bacon…….OMG (reminicing makes me salivate)All served on linen covered trays with ORCHIDS on the side…OK…I'll stop.
