Mama said there’d be days like this…
The day started with my bottom parked on a chair under a thatched umbrella on the beach in the Dominican Republic. I enjoy the beach and clear blue water, but there was no sense in burning my milky white skin.  It had enough sun exposure during the thirty minute walk around the resort before I […]

Waiting in the lobby, I started to feel a bit self conscious.  It was almost midnight and I was surrounded by attractive people dressed to the nines in suits, tuxedos and formal dresses.  I couldn’t tell if they were attending a wedding or some other Friday night celebration, but I was definitely under-dressed in my […]

Wrapping up 2014 with a new look
I’m going to be honest with you: A few weeks ago, I thought I was done. I was a little bored of writing, sick of the blog’s “look” and a little concerned that the media was starting to turn on pilots like me who willfully contribute our experiences to others. I took the site offline. […]
