The word fly brings many memories flooding to my brain. The first would involve my youngest child. My daughter thought she should fly. When she was just a toddler she would drag a chair to the counter and climb up. She would stand there and see if someone was looking then squeal and say, "Look! I am flying!" as she dove off the counter. I had many terrifying moments with this....but she had great faith that we would catch her and she was right....she never once hit the ground.
My third memory of flying was my first trip on a plane. I was 8 and flew to my grandparents in Alabama. I flew alone and actually earned a set of wings for being a good traveler. My grandparents picked me up in Montgomery. It was great fun. Then came the big flight the night after seeing the movie Airport. My seat mate was a young hippie with a duffle bag he kept nervously between his legs. I just knew I was going to die when the bomb in his bag exploded. Weather was bad on this flight and we flew out in the direction of the Bermuda Triangle. I could see lightening and a bolt actually struck the wing of the plane. I did not fly after that for a long while.
Flying has always appealed to me. I love the feel of the air on me. I love the peace that comes from the sky.
To Joey, With Love....WINNER!
