  • Seeing Eye Dog

    I was flying from San Francisco to Los Angeles.
    By the time we took off, there had been a 45-minute delay and everybody on board was ticked.

    Unexpectedly, we stopped in Sacramento on the way.

    The flight attendant explained that there would be another 45-minute delay, and if we wanted to get off the aircraft, we would reboard in 30 minutes.

    Everybody got off the plane except one gentleman who was blind.

    I noticed him as I walked by and could tell he had flown before because his Seeing Eye dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of him throughout the entire flight.

    I could also tell he had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached him and, calling him by name, said: "Keith, we're in Sacramento for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?"

    Keith replied: "No thanks, but maybe my dog would like to stretch his legs."

    Picture this ... all the people in the gate area came to a completely quiet standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with the Seeing Eye dog!
    The pilot was even wearing sunglasses.

    People scattered...
    They not only tried to change planes, they also were trying to change airlines!

    I had to re read part of it twice but when I did, you probably heard my laugh. That was great. Any chance it's true?

      Hi Mike,

      I have no clue if it's true, but it's plausible.
      And because it could happen is what makes it so funny to imagine easily.

      Me...I just receive them as jokes, and pass on the good ones.

      Regards,
      Marcel

          Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

          Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

          Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

          Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

          I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...
