After trying several times to locate a vein in my left arm, the technician applied a Band-Aid, and then inserted a needle into my right arm, drawing blood this time, and then put a Band-Aid on that arm as well.
One day, at the dry-cleaning shop of a local Air Force Base, I overheard a young airman describe in great detail how he wanted his uniform cleaned and pressed.
When he finished, the counter clerk asked, “Are you getting an award, or do you have an important military function to attend?”
“Nothing like that,” the airman said. “I’m going home on leave, and my little brother is taking me to his second-grade class for show-and-tell.”
I recently took my five children to the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola Florida. One of the exhibits is filled with actual cockpits for the kids to sit in.
I lifted my 4 yr old daughter into one cockpit that had side by side seating for the pilot and co-pilot.
When my daughter got in she said “Good – this one’s two player!”
