LESLIE
Leslie riding bareback on Tuff,
a large gelding.

I once took my daughter "Leslie" with me 
on a trip to Vienna out of JFK. She was 
about twelve years old. She never forgot 
that trip and this May she has her 44th 
birthday but even more will record her 
24th year with Continental Airlines and 
flying as a ISM (International Service Mgr) 
on the Boeing 777, going non-stop between 
EWR and destinations like Hong Kong, 
New Delhi and other places that her father 
never reached in one flight segment. 
The multi-crew rest compartments sound 
like real luxury compared to the stretcher 
like cots that the ONA DC-7 operation once 
had in the Pacific. She commutes from 
Sarasota to Newark when she is not grooming, 
washing or riding her horses (6) and 
generally makes me tired just thinking 
about her schedule which she manipulates 
on her computer with crew scheduling, 
maximising either money, days off, 
ground school requirements etc. I see the 
generation-gap widening as though I am more 
history than substance although I am sure of 
my capability's regarding that crew rest 
compartment should they need a test pilot.
