Well, hello ya'll.

Thought I'd drop in and say hello.

Have been away for 3 or 4 years I guess.
Got a week off without pay for telling some nudnick what he should do
with himself, but decided not to come back after my time in the penalty box was up.
I was addicted and spent far too much time on this here board.

Needed to get some control over my life...Quit smoking too I did.:cool:

So, has everybody been behaving? :rolleyes:

Lost my job with AA (The airline, not the drinking club) after 9/11 and the massive lay-offs.
Spent a year doing very little, except sailing and sipping Kraut Ale, but finally had to get a job and and now pushing heavy metal through the skies of South America....With the occasional outbasing to Jo'Burg and such places.

So, uh any good news around?

Well TD, I for one am glad you are back. What are you driving and are you based in the US?

(PS, need a job, got any 72s?:E )

10th Mar 2006, 04:02
Welcome back Towerdog,

Life on the Wagon from AA aint so bad....


10th Mar 2006, 04:14
Howdy folks.

Yeah, based in MIA, flying 747-200s for Tradewinds Airlines.
Not a bad gig I guess. Instant upgrade and a few months later, check-airman.
(It happens fast in the colonies..:cool: )

On the other hand, they started furloughing folks a couple of weeks ago.
Thirty souls are gone so far.

No good, no Sir, not good at all....:rolleyes:

Oh my, who do we have here...????.!!!!
TD, It's been a long time. Very long time....
Just wait when the purple dragon finds out you're back here. Be nothing but kisses, right? :hmm:
I hope you are still taking your sailing trips while on breaks from the heavy metal.
I'll be in FLL next Sat.(the 17th) but only for a few hours.
Maybe you can treat me to a cold one... Staying in Key West for a week.
PM me if you can "takeoff".. :ok: :D
Or just because.

Hmm, I would, but don't remember who or what you are?

Lemme see: Tall blond, sexy and hormoned female looking for tall blond, heavy and aging Norwegian pilot...?

Probably not.,?

Worst case scenario: Pale Male Brit looking for free beer in Ft. Lauderdale with cool Norski?

He-he, whatever, give me a call and we may see.


Uh, Flaps Forty, the Foxy Purple one...?
Hmm, licking my lips here, is she still around? :)

11th Mar 2006, 02:55
Aye, she is...lurks around she does.

welcome back.

11th Mar 2006, 03:58
Are you telling me, since you quit smoking your brain went with it???
How many clues do I need to give you?
I almost joined you and Flopster the other year in FLL.
Read my previous post again. If "takeoff" did not give me away - nothing will.
I"m not blond. And I still have your number. Big Boy,,,,,,, ;) :O :p

11th Mar 2006, 11:59
Aye, now I got it...

Ya changed names, probably just to confuse me.

It worked:cool:

Well, long time no see.
Ya been good?

(Can't say I have)

Well, I may be in town for the 17th.
Number is the same...For a good time, call the TowerDog..As always.:ok:

13th Mar 2006, 02:43
Oops, change in plans, will be in LAX the 17th.

Phone number is still the same however...Don't be shy, call the old dog and ya won't be sorry..:cool:
