Just a quickie review, partly because this is a very short book . . .
Flying by the Seat of My Pants tells about the author's experiences as a flight attendant. Because the book is a mere 144 pages and immensely entertaining, I think I can safely assume that she limited herself to the best anecdotes from her many years of working in the airline industry. There were at least three stories that I enjoyed so much I felt obligated to rush to the den to share them with my husband.
A note: My husband is not easy to entertain. He's a serious, taciturn sort of a guy who seldom laughs. So, to see him tip back his head and laugh as I related one of the stories was enough to have made the book worth full price. But, I got it 80% off because our Bible Factory Outlet is running out of books - they're shutting down. I've probably told you that. Did I tell you Vicksburg has also lost its only theater? Things are getting dire, here.
Anyway, definitely a fun book and great for a lift - lots of smiles and a fast read, perfect for the busy holiday season. I'm going to hang onto this one for a reread when I need an upper.
Still reading Summer in Tuscany by Elizabeth Adler - I just picked up Flying, etc., last evening and couldn't put it down.
Latest on the blog update I kept putting off: They're out of beta? Okay, well, I've saved my templates and I'm going to wait to update my links because I'm not sure just when this update thing is going to happen, now. Sigh. Life is funny that way.
Best things that happened, today: A nice wind blew most of the oak leaves off our roof and I managed to get a lot of Stuff thrown away (very important, as we've run out of space to put things). Okay, not exciting, but you have to take joy in the little things.
Worst thing: You don't want to hear it, but I'm ventilating, okay? Today's bad news was that the eldest found out his truck's axle was damaged in the recent automobile accident his mother tries not to dwell on. So, he will not be able to drive home for Christmas. And, he was shopping when he called to tell us this tidbit. He's down to a few scrappy dollars in his savings and he was shopping instead of working. Hubby said, "I'm gonna kill him." The feeling was mutual, I can assure you.
Off to soak in a hot tub and meditate on the positives. Books. Books are good. I'll meditate on books.
Yikes, only 10 days left till 2007!!!! Gosh, where does the time go? Aren't we having fun? Yes, yes, we're definitely having fun. Positive thoughts all around.
