Hey Sailing, since I tooled myself on page one now its my turn to out a tool. Todays tool award goes to my old Brasilia captain that brought out hand puppets to start an engine. The Jar Jar Binks puppets hand would come up above the glareshield and twirl. In his best jar jar voice he'd say, "Meesa say start engine numba one!". The ramper pointed to the number one engine, twirled a wand and just shook their head in wonder. ......Buzz lightyear got to start engines too.

I must admit I did laugh on day one. Day 16, not so much. We flew all month with the same crew.

Continental Express right?

Whatever happened to three cups or whatever his nickname was?

speaking of that time, there was a CLE Captain that always wanted to be right and argue against you. Complete tool of tools. But what was fun, you could get him to argue against himself on the next trip.

Nope, Skywest. He was a really nice guy. Just did a couple goofy things. On his off days he would dress up as a clown and go to the children's hospital. Very cool not a tool. He also had a picture of his pride and joy in his wallet......pride and joy soap! Ok, we're back at tool again. Lol.

Ahhahaha!
Friend of the wife....over for a BBQ.....tells me at the grill that she's a "4th stage vegan", and only eats things that don't cast a shadow on the Earth...

I puzzled over that one until I proffered that a juicy pork chop, when turned sideways, doesn't cast that much of a shadow!!

She didn't approve of all of my beer drinking either....

Not really aviation, but still a tool of that day.

Funny.

I thought there was someone who did something with puppets at Express. Talk to the puppet thing, maybe I'm confusing it for something I read here.

Only a TOOL overlooks that concept.

Three cups is still there. An FO in my old crash pad flew with him about six months ago.

So, when are you inviting her back for dinner?

If it doesnt cast a shadow on the earth, she eats only roots?
