Dad taught Mom to fly a J-3. They got married, of course.
are you like a mad scientist or a heisenberg scientist?
The longer I live, the more holes my socks have. I hate buying new socks.
I own a V-tail.
My wife is a pilot and a veterinarian. And she hasn't left me yet after 32 years of marriage.
Well... I got nothing.. so carry on
I read this as the bar is pretty low to become a lawyer.
After 125 hours and nearly 400 landings , I made a beautiful crosswind landing today.
No one was there to appreciate it.
I’m in good health, as is my wife, and have an internist that’s also a cardiologist that helps keep my wife and I that way.
At some point, you won't care that nobody appreciated it. You will just keep doing it, and get better at it. That will make you feel better.
A thankful post. Damn why didn't I think of that as the title
Nice to read about what others are thankful
After a few hundred hours you'd get over that.
The Lear 45 still has me jealous to fly it more..
I mean, you do this job long enough and you’ll question how in the world some lawyers passed the bar. Most all lawyers are very competent and serve their clients well, but a few others … maybe not so much.
I can eat 50 eggs.
If they are deviled eggs, I will argue I probably have you beat.
I caught a fly with chopsticks in front of a roomful of shocked Koreans.
I have been a pilot for 11/16 of my lifetime.
I've been lucky enough to have run into many people who are better people than I am, and for whatever un-explainable reason many of them have put up with me. Yeah, baffling.
Airline Capt making good money. No kids, but have wife of 27 years. Party all the time and own a Vette. Built house to my specs.
Story of my life.
My thoughts exactly! So many of my life's turns have to have been guided by God, even though I try to take the credit sometimes. I am constantly grateful for all the blessings in my life, of which aviation is just one.
Pushing eighty I'm still alive, healthy, and flying.
First British Apache Pilot although in the US Army at the time…lol…As a liaison to the British Army for a few months it caused quite the issue as they had problems fielding the aircraft…
I had a very similar story. I was always last to finish my test papers, largely because I kept falling asleep in class. They wanted to put me in a "special ed" class too, for the same reason. My parents kept fighting it until my stepfather was transferred to another duty station. The new schools were twice as hard and I found out that I could stay awake if the classes weren't so basic and boring.
Today I bore my full weight on my legs for the first time since spinal surgery six weeks ago, for two whole minutes.
I’m not much for bragging, but I am enjoying life. Flew on our own plane to the keys to celebrate the wife’s birthday. Certainly can’t complain.
Sounds like you’ve got it made!
I just got out of jail after 40 years!
Yea but I re married her 20 years later! I am a dummy! lol Well maybe not, she encouraged me to buy our plane.
My day today is a little worse. I can only aspire to this level of achievement.
Similar thing with school at a young age. Never found it interesting. A high school English teacher was shocked when he saw my IQ score. He thought I was dumb. I joined the Air Force - no college. They told me that if I wanted to fly I should get an Engineering degree. Drove over to the local college and asked about it. The fellow gave me a placement test for math. I can't believe I knew all that stuff! I guess it soaked in despite my best efforts. Started down that road part time in the Air Force. The wouldn't let me fly because I was color blind, but I was starting to like the Engineering thing. Got out of the AF finished my degree in Electrical Engineering. Good grades too. Changed my life.
I climbed a Cessna 150 to 13,000 feet and spun it 33 full turns.
Now we know you're lying. A C150 can't make it to 13K feet unless it was towed to 13,001.
Friends of ours got married in their early 20's and it only lasted a few years. They got married again in their mid 30's. They are now 60 and still married. They had an unnamed boat when they remarried. Without them knowing we put a sticker on it "Deja Vu". The name stayed until they sold it almost 10 years later.
Married 37 years, no kids and never wanted any. Grew up around aviation. Been flying Corporate since 1984 except 5 years sailing our boat in the Caribbean around 2000. Never been laid off and only had 4 corporate flying jobs. Even had a flying job waiting for me when I got back from the Caribbean.
Plus I flew the predecessor of the Westwind, the Jet Commander, but just as contract SIC.
I once did a perfect (somewhat accidental) split ess in a 1952 OH-23B. Had not been that surprised since puberty.
Not sure I’ve mentioned it before but I own a DeLorean…and I’m thankful for that.
What we got here is failure t'communicate.
My best friend had a failed divorce, too.
That is awesome. Good luck for continued future success in your rehab.
