Latest yarn...

Post by (A/229) BBall on Sat 4 Jun 2016 - 1:06

Here you go guys. Got in yesterday from my last 12 dayer to the Orient...still a bit "stupid". Wide awake at 0200, so I figured I might as well get this finished and posted up. Hope you enjoy...

Another great "reflection" BBall...

I (and many others) enjoy sitting down & reading your "logbook", with never a dull moment.

Your latest is now on the new website (still WIP) under "Anecdotes & Short Stories"

Another great read Mr BBall, i know Palau is a hell hole they serve the worst Mai Tai's in the Pacific im told Laughing I reckon you should retire ( when you are ready to) as the Airline Pilots Professor of Philosophy and pass down your hard won experience and knowledge. You would probably get a kick out of it. I have a similar thing going on where i am still valuable enough to contribute to my "past professional life" on a casual basis, its great and you can still tell the wheat from the chaff and sort them out accordingly.

Good stuff mate.

Thanks for the kind words fellas. (I've actually updated that particular piece just a few minutes ago with some additional pics...lol)

Yeah, Stut, my brutha...Palau is a night-mare of a layover. All that sun, fun, and those disgusting Mai Tai's! How a man can stand that junk is beyond me! I suffer through it somehow...

I like your idea about retirement. Not sure I can offer anything to these new "bucks" (again, just flew with a kid that was born while I was in new-hire ground school...LMAO!), but maybe they could glean a nugget or three. We'll see...

Have a great day all, and again...thanks for wasting heart-beats reading my blathering word-vomit ( Very Happy Very Happy )
