  • 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

          Arizona opened up vaccines to 55 and over this past week. Appointments at the county mass vaccine sites filled up within a few hours. Today I got online to my grandson's pediatrician's office, as I heard they were doing them to help the community. It took 5 minutes to snag an appointment for tomorrow...

          That's one pretty piece of wood and a very nice cutting. The story that goes with it and your father's love for wood make it even more special. May all that wood make you feel close to him always. Hold on to those memories of him to carry you through the Alzheimers, and for many years after. The...

          My father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's this last summer. We had to move him into a nursing home because he couldn't take care of himself anymore. He used to run a successful wood shop. He made shooting benches, picnic tables, porch swings, among other things. My cousin bought his property so we...

          Hi Jim - a long while back I did a series of ebonizing tests using the steel wool and vinegar method on a variety of woods. On white oak the color turns out to be a light grey. On red oak its a much darker grey black. To get the best out of ebonizing i.e. the blackest coloration the wood needs t o be...
