I, thankfully, have not had this particular problem myself (possibly because my love and subsequent, occasionally irrational, use of big, complicated college words can be a turn-off for some), but I’ve seen it and have been embarrassed for the blogger and disgusted and disappointed by the person leaving the verbal landmine. Not only is it so much easier to be misunderstood when one doesn’t have the benefit of body language to interpret, but the anonymity seems to infuse some people with an inflated ego and the will to prove that the pen is mightier than the sword. It costs nothing to simply be nice. And If I had dogs, I would love for my pets to have the opportunity to play with Stella so that I could have some “owner time” to converse and become more acquainted with this writer.
This goes out to all my friends that have become addicted to Dexter with my exuberant assistance. I love that show and I love this blogger, if only in a favorite sister kind of way. Unfortunately for any vile miscreants I happen to come across, this lovely post has gotten me thinking about my prospective success as a serial killer. And it just so happens that I picked up a package of garbage bags yesterday.
Right now…I have goosebumps. Please enjoy another fantastic video put together by a fellow freight dog depicting many of the chills and thrills freight pilots encounter in the course of their career.
And for the record, I do miss the 25s (a lot), I always flew the profile (you can’t prove anything), and although I flew with Pyka, I did not participate in the bitching about N39DK (aka 39 Donkey Kong). Okay, well, maybe just a little bit.
I have recently become a big fan of this blogger. I have also recently discovered that WordPress allows me to reblog something that I like from another writer. Therefore, I would like to share his most recent effort with my readers. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
When I first watched this video by Jj Guerra, it brought back a flood of memories from a cherished time in my life. It offers a glimpse into a world rarely seen and in my case, greatly missed, not only for the fantastic people with whom I was privileged to work but also for the fleeting opportunity to truly fly.
Author’s Note: I apologize that this link is not embedded directly into my blog, but I’m not yet in a position to shell out the mad cheddar to buy a video upgrade from WordPress. Maybe Santa can hook me up next week.
UPDATE! Santa didn’t need to hook me up so much as buy me a clue – you can now click on the “Watch it here” link to enjoy the video. Happy Holidays!
