"THE DETAILS ARE NOT THE DETAILS. THEY MAKE THE DESIGN." — CHARLES EAMES
Happy Tuesday, m' dears! My father-in-law is in town for Thanksgiving and while we're busy prepping for this week's festivities, I thought I'd pop in and share a few snapshots from Sunday's spouse taxi. As you can tell from the photos, "take your wife to work day" was a riot! I was a bundle of nerves as we spent the morning listening to briefings and practicing how to egress from a T-6 in the event of an emergency. The odds of this happening were comical as we never actually left the runway (we got up to 70 knots and then taxied back to the plane's parking spot), but safety first, right?? I guess when dealing with a four-million-dollar aircraft, I couldn't help but worry about pushing the wrong button. Trust me, I tend to do REALLY embarrassing things when I get nervous. Aside from messing up a few radio calls (Oops!), I managed to successfully complete the taxi without breaking anything while also offering Flyboy a few good laughs at my expense. What else is new? The opportunity to suit up and strap into the jet was definitely a memory I'll never forget, and the afternoon gave me a better appreciation for what Flyboy does on a daily basis.
For those of you who are wondering, I opted NOT to break out my sparkly sneakers. Sigh! I just worried about Flyboy suffering the consequences when he returned to work on Monday. I can only assume it would go something like this... "Did you hear about Fine's wife and how she FOD out the jet with her glitter shoes??" For my husband's sake, I stuck with my trusty Tretorns instead. #selfless
Enough about me. How the heck are you?? Also, who's ready for Thursday??
