Integrity is not something that you should have to think about... nor consider doing... but something in the heart that is already done. - Doug Firebaugh

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
A little boy was helping his father move some books out of an attic into more spacious quarters downstairs. It was important to this little boy that he was helping his dad, even though he was probably getting in the way and slowing things down more than he was actually assisting. But that boy had a wise and patient father who knew it was more important to work at a task with his young son than it was to move a pile of books efficiently.
Among this man's books, however, were some rather large study books, and it was a chore for the boy to get them down the stairs. As a matter of fact, on one particular load, the boy dropped his pile of books several times. Finally, he sat down on the stairs and wept in frustration. He wasn't doing any good at all. He wasn't strong enough to carry the big books down a narrow stairway. It hurt him to think he couldn't do this for his daddy.
Without a word, the father picked up the dropped load of books, put them into the boy's arms, and scooped up both the boy and the books into his arms and carried them down the stairs. And so they continued load after load, both very much enjoying each other's company. The boy carrying the books, and the dad carrying the boy.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
Pilot One Liners
Q: What is the ideal cockpit crew?
A: A pilot and a dog...the pilot is there to feed the dog, and the dog is there to bite the pilot in case he tries to touch anything.
Q: How many pilots does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Just one. He holds the bulb and the world revolves around him.
Q: How do you know if a pilot is at your party?
A: He'll tell you.
Q: How do you know when you are half way through a date with a pilot?
A: Because he says: "That’s enough about flying, let's talk about me"!
Q: What's the purpose of the propeller?
A: To keep the pilot cool. If you don't think so, just stop it and watch him sweat!

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
The day after the big game in which Walt had run a hundred-yard touchdown. Coach Benner was analyzing the play. "Walt," he said, "you carried the ball too closely and in the wrong hand. You ran to the inside when you should have run to the outside. You ran ahead of some of your blocks. It was just a lucky run."
Walt said, "How was it for distance, Coach?"
