When the sun hits the sky like a big pizza pie, thatīs amore ...
wonderful memories of stewardesses of 1966, hitting metropolitan
New York sitting in a top down American car cruising along Fifth
Avenue at midnight listening to the radio playing Strangers in the
Night, Frank Sinatra and glorious airline life, life took on dimensions
not even dreamed of for a bunch of unexperienced girls just out of
highschool. Las Vegas champagne flights, Vietnam missions and the
Shriners to Hawaii! The variation was as wild as the different
assignments.
