Flight Attendant Friday

I cannot believe another Friday has rolled around and it's time for "Flight Attendant Friday" again. I hope you're not to disappointed.......I've had a really bad last 24 hours. I flew to Dallas Tuesday afternoon because I had recurrent training on Wednesday. All went really well. Recurrent was good. I was able to catch the 3:15 p.m. flight back to Little Rock and I arrived at home about 6:00. My hero had a WONDERFUL dinner prepared for me and all was well.......until I turned my computer on. GROWL!!!! There were lines and stripes all over my screen. I nearly went into a tail spin. I called Best Buy and they say it sounds like my LCD screen was going out. OK, how much! Probably $500. WHAT!!!! No way.....oh yes, way!

Anywoo......guess who has a new computer tonight. Long story short.......I travel with my computer everytime I work. It makes me feel connected to home and I NEVER, EVER let it out of my sight. I carry it in a padded bag inside another bag with a shoulder strap and I never let the shuttle driver put in back with crew luggage, it always rides up front with me and I also never put it in the overhead bin. I always put it in the flight attendant storage when I'm on the plane.

WELL, yesterday I was in a tiz and stuck it in my roller bag, yep I did it and a sweet pilot offered to place my luggage up in the overhead bin and yep I let him! Well, you know the rest. It's history, broken beyond mistake and sometimes mistakes are costly. So after a quick trip to Little Rock and $800 poorer here I am again with a NEW computer that will NEVER be touched by another soul other than me! LOL!

OK, now that I have that off my chest. I was going to talk about training this week, however, it's getting late so I thought I would leave you with one of the perks of my job.........

My neice Cindy, Taylor Swift & me

Ya never know who ya might run into. And let me tell you she is a DOLL!!! This was taken about 2 years ago. We picked Taylor up in Nashville and took her to Baltimore where she was opening I believe in Pennsylvania the next night for George Strait. She's come along way since then, hasn't she?
Until next week..........stay safe in your travels!
