Just thinkin'...........about the style of the 1960s, the energy and excitement of the Jet Age. (And the new series 'Pan Am' this fall (Sept. 25) on abc.) So............
Just thinkin' about how the stewardesses had Star appeal! The stewardess had to fit certain criteria, and today that criteria is considered politically incorrect and offensive. In fact, we don't refer to them as 'stewardess' anymore. With all innocence, I wanted to fit the profile to become a stewardess, but didn't! I wanted to be beautiful, svelte, professional, worldly, and always having a big smile! I loved their uniforms, so figure flattering! They traveled everywhere, ever day! And, they captured the attention of just about every man! Yep, Star quality!
In this modern world, air travel represents the height of luxury and Pan Am is the biggest name in the business.
The planes are glamorous, the pilots are rock stars and the stewardesses are the most desirable women in the world.
Just thinkin'........that's really all changed today!
Just thinkin'.........what hasn't changed today...........thank God! Young boys (older ones too) needing to be adventurous! (I love that about boys!) And, that's where this precious pup- Gunner (that's his name given by the boys, of course)- comes in to this adventurous tail, I mean tale!
My youngest son was having a sleepover with his cousin the past few days. Needless to say, they have been inventive and adventurous little guys. Which leads to the highlight of my morning tale.
Before I leave for work, I kiss my kids goodbye and I visit with Gunner on the porch. This particular morning, I noticed something stashed in Gunner's collar. I reached down to remove what was a handwritten and folded note.............and the note read....................
I guess I was supposed to answer by circling "yes" or "no", fold it, and place it back in Gunner's collar, in hopes that they would retrieve it(no pun intended)later. Too my tickled enjoyment, I almost did just that. However..........silly boys........they know I am on a time constraint to work, and they don't want to get up that early anyway!
We laughed about it later today! Silly adventurous boys!
Just thinkin'............I'm so glad some things NEVER change! xo
