Mate on a Plane...

My Christmas gift to spouse a couple of years ago, when I was gainfully employed, was a flight on a gen-u-wine war bird. It was something he had always wanted to do but the only flight I could find wasn't convenient location-wise. When the ad popped up in our local paper, I just couldn't resist it!

He was caught completely off-guard and had a difficult time waiting until spring when the flight actually occurred. It lasted a full hour and he had a ball. They actually did some acrobatics and the pilot (behind him) let him take the "stick" for a bit. He said it was the best gift ever...



APPETIZER: What was one of the fashion fads when you were a teenager?
~~In high school, we wore sweaters with pencil slim wool skirts and stiletto high heels. Oh, and bouffant hairdos! The guys wore chinos and madras shirts. I missed out on the poodle skirts but not by much!

SOUP: Name one thing you think people assume about you when they first meet you.
~~I'm quiet by nature. I have had friends tell me that they thought I was "aloof" or "standoffish" until they got to know me. I HATE that! My husband told me he thought I was a "highbrow." Gag...

SALAD: On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how hard do you work?
~~Easy - a minus 5. But when I was "able-bodied," I always gave at the office!

MAIN COURSE: If you were given a free 30-second commercial during the Super Bowl to sell anything you currently own, what would you advertise?
~~Our FRIGGIN' HOUSE!!! It's been on the market for seven months!!!

DESSERT: Fill in the blank: I love to go walking when it is lightly raining.

Delicious feast! We probably grew up in the same era. I remember the wool skirts, didn't like the heels at all.
Good luck with selling your house.

You sound like you're from my sister's era. She used to spend hours in the bathroom with Dippity-Do ratting up her hair. But at the h.s. here, the girls were required to wear bobby socks and tennies. The stilettos were only for church.

I enjoyed your feast as well. I sense much emotion in that Main Course. Good Luck with that! :-)

That sounds like a marvelous gift that I'm sure your husband will always remember with fondness in his heart.

Thanks for sharing your FF. People also mistake me for being aloof and a snob because I'm quite a shy person. Hope a good buyer for your house will come soon. Walking in the rain ... sounds romantic.

My FF is up too.

oh man oh man, would I love to fly in an old warbird. In October two flying fortresses flew into OKC. they were selling rides, but we couldn't afford it. One of these days, though, I am going to take a ride.

hello honey! we are in west palm beach, far south of any problems but thank you so much for inquiring! actually we had a sunny day with 86 degrees for a high and 74 for a low, so although i feel really bad for the center of the state, our part is amazing....

and honey? when you walk in the rain you need an umbrella! see?
