How did you like THAT for a “first post” title? Unbelievably imaginative…right?
Although I’ve been attempting to put “pen to paper” (see how an old guy talks?) for years, this is my first journey into that funny netherworld known as a “Blog”. So the question arises…”What amazingly cool, heart-wrenching, gut-busting funny piece do I lead off with?” This is almost like getting ready for a dreaded first date, and thinking, “Do I wear the yellow pants with the green shirt? Or the green pants with the yellow shirt (and pink tie)? What will her parents think of me? Strong handshake with the “old man” and softer, more delicate with the Mom? Does the salad fork go on the left or the right?” Crap…maybe I’ll just use a tried and true scientific method. I’ll spread a ton of my literary pieces on the floor and see which one the dog urinates on…that’ll be the one!
As you may have gleaned from my profile (or maybe not), I drive big airplanes for a living. I grew up in an aviators family (a few yarns about that later), began my flying career before the end of high school, attended an aviation college, and have been drawing a pay-check by moving lots of wonderful people from point A to B for the last 35 years. To say that it’s been an unbelievable journey would be like saying that Monet could paint, or Mozart did “fairly well” with a keyboard (or Jenny Craig lost some weight). Words don’t do them justice, and (hopefully) some of my musings will shed a bit of light on what a life spent in the clouds can be like…
Stay tuned…first actual yarn coming soon.
