For some people, air travel is old hat. For others, it is a periodic and somewhat foreign process. Whatever the case, you know the drill.
Today is a special day and one worth noting. It is the day, six decades ago, God brought into the world my wife and best friend, Jackie.
I know I am taking a chance by disclosing her age as most women do not care to have this piece of their bio publically revealed.
However, it is worth the risk!
There have been many times I have listened to a song, watched a movie, or read a book where the instantaneous and overwhelming thought has been – “this one is a winner”.
