The Life of a Pilot....
The story is... I am junior reserve in base. The plan this month was to sit in a hotel for 18 days and work on my novel. Reality... I was bumped to First Class on my commute to work, and then my first day of reserve I was assigned to a 7 day trip with two Honolulu layovers, one of which was 46 hours. Nice duty!
Arrival into Honolulu... a beautiful approach!
I had printed my novel, so I was able to sit at the pool and work on it. I visited my friend Darby for hours. She's a captain with an attitude, and a great sense of humor. Did I say gorgeous too? One day she'll let me take a picture of her! 14 chapters complete! Life is good.

And then it was time to get back to work....
Did I tell you that I have a really great job?
Flying back to base tomorrow. More great things to come.... Enjoy the journey!
