Story time - Flying


Another story.
(Hope I haven't let this one "slip" out, before!)
If I have - "slap me down"!!
(Thank you, may I have another!?!)

Once upon a time -
In a galaxy far, far away - You know, over "yonder" -
over by "dere"!
(The crows don't fly there! - you can't get there from here!)

It was a bright and sunny day! -
It's noisy! - too noisy! -
(Always, a bad sign!)

The natives weren't "restless", at all!
(I think they had too many "libations")!

The silence was deafening -
You could cut the "silence" with a "knife" -
(I usually, use a "Saw-Z-All", with a good carbide blade!) -

As the fog lifted, what to our wonderous, eyes did we see!?! -
Rossi!!
(We're either saved or, in really, deep "doo-doo"!)
(I think I would choose the latter!)

And then! ---

RF

(Hang on, for a moment - I've got a call from "Darth Vader" -
he wants to know about some "tweaks" - for Beef Stroganoff! -
Apparently, the "Force" doesn't work too well with cooking)!!

Hi ya-all!

"Mike" -
Weather?!?
Yeah - I think we dodged a "projectile" this Winter!!!
No complaints here!!

(By the way "Darth" says thanks for the Stroganoff recipe!)

So - on with the saga!

It was a dark and stor .... Wait a minute!?!
It was a bright and sunny day!
(Get it right you stupid, "Hack"!)
Jeeesh!!
Can't get good writers anymore!!!

Where do we find our intrepid, hapless, "Hack"?
On a bar-stool, sitting with some companions -
My brother and a friend (we'll call her "Andie") -
Tastefully, partaking, of some beverages!
(Surprise!)
We're at a nice bar, "Fox Valley Mall", Aurora, Ill.
A Saturday afternoon - Summer - late 1980's.

We're just sitting there having some drinks, "b.s."-ing, having a good time.
The subject of "Flying", in jet-airplanes comes up.
My brother and myself both like flying in jet-airliners -
especially - lightly, loaded 2 or 3 engined ones!
Man/woman when they take off, and it's "peddle to the metal"!!
Climbing for the sky!!
Yeah!!!

Well - the beverages "kick-in" -
A "plot" is hatched -
Let's go Fly!!
(We're both armed with credit cards!)
I get on the phone and call a cab.
Off to O'Hare airport!!!

Break time!

Why didn't someone TELL me about this!?

Ross, are you on vacation?!

We're waiting with great anticipation of your narration about libation and aviation.

Jim -
Surprisingly (Happily, I might add!) -
No "Barf", bags were harmed in the performance of this escapade!
What's really surprising about that -
I was drinking Scotch - my brother was drinking "T-N-T"s!

Barb -
It's on a "need to know basis" -
Don't ask me!!!
I don't know!!
No, no vacation - long weekend!

Back in a few!

Well, our courageous (stupid!?!) travelers, arrive at O'Hare airport.
Time to check out the out-bound flights.
Las Vegas is there (too much potential money, out-lay!)
(We weren't that, stupid!)
Kansas City!
None of us has been there -
Why not?!?
We purchase tickets and get ready for a wonderful, "Flying", experience!!
Next -
Take off!!

Thanks Barb, I didn't know that. Now talking about that word libation (never heard it before, a southern thing ya know). I asked Judy did it mean something close to liable and she told me what it meant, so I guess they are pretty close to the same, if you are libation, you are liable to wind up on your a$$ hehehe, sorry, couldn't help myself there.

My stars, waaay back when I was real young I tried some of that scotch, nasty nasty not to mention having to sleep using the commode as a pillow. That was back around 19 aught 3 I believe. Hey, this is my lie, I'll tell it the way I want to. Now back to our scheduled program.

....

The only time I'd heard that word was on the 'Cigar Dave' show. I don't smoke cigars, but he talks a lot about politics on his Saturday show and if I'm out driving around, that's the only thing worth listening to at that time of the day.

A spontaneous trip to Kansas City!! This should be interesting!!

BARB -
I hope you're happy!
You've turned Jim on to "Smilies"!
(I hope he doesn't get "hooked"!)
You may have created a "Monster"!
"sorry, couldn't help myself there" -
See what I mean, Barb -
It's probably, too late!

As far as Scotch goes - When I was much younger; my father was mostly,
a beer drinker.
He did have a bottle of "Cutty Sark" in the "frig", though.
While I was "rifling" the frig for anything I could consume/drink -
You know - food, milk, OJ, pop, kool-aid ...
I noticed this bottle of "Cutty Sark" (Not bad Scotch!)
Being the inquisitive, youth that I was -
I took a "slug"!
YOOOWWW!
This ain't the same as a sip from my father's beer!!!
Over time - I took a few more, "slugs"!
They tasted better!

My most, memorable "exploit" with Scotch was -
3 days - 2 nights
3 bottles "Glenlevit" - straight - non-stop.
(Yes, it was a woman that drove me to drink - I never got to thank her!)
I drank myself "sober".

JIM -
"liable to wind up on your a$$"
No chance, man!
I always, break my falls, with my face!
(Jim - your "clownish" activities have come to my attention - I feel it's
my duty to inform "--M--", there's another "clown" in our midst!!)
(Please Lord help us!! - it's bad enough that "Rossi" is hanging around
here - now apparently, there's another "clown" - "Jim"!)
(Just remember this, Jim - I'm the "Hack", clown - OK?!?!)

We'll be back to our previously, "unscheduled", program in a few!
"Take off"!!
Yeah!! (Rock and Roll!)

Story time - Flying


Well -
Our trio of intrepid, adventurous, travelers are on the plane.
It's just what my brother and I wanted! (There is a "God"!)
It's one of those 3-engined, jets -
Maybe, 1/4 to 1/3 full. (Light-weight)
We're on the taxi-way, in line for take off.
As we're rolling, the pilot is running the engines up -
Got to see if this "birdie", knows how to "sing"!

We turn onto the runway -
The pilot "locks" the brakes, and proceeds to REALLY, run the engines up -
It's "hoppin', skippin', jumpin', chirpin" on the runway!
I think the plane is tired of being on the ground - it wants to do what it
was designed for - "FLY"!!!
I guess everything sounded good to the pilot!
(Sounded/felt good to me! - impending, "Power"!)
Kick It!!!
The engines slow down for a few (Great Expectations!)

Then - the engines kick in!
We're down that runway faster - "than dirt", "lickity-split", "muy pronto",
Just like that we're "airborne"!!!
This is fun!!!
As if that wasn't good enough -
I can feel the landing gear, come up -
Now we're "streamlined"!

All is Well!!
It get's "Weller"!!
I think our pilot must have been an ex-fighter pilot.
He proceeds to stand that "birdy", on it's tail!
We're "screaming" for the skies!
G-Force!
(Throw some more coals on!!)
This is good - more than we had hoped for!!
In the midst of our climb (which was fun!) - he proceeds to bank the
plane.
I'm on the window seat and I'm looking at the city of Chicago, from
thousands of feet up!
Beautiful!!
And, we're "Rockin and Rollin" - "Full, Tilt, Boogey!!
(I wish he could have done an "Emelleman", roll!)
(Sorry about the spelling!)
