The Joy Of Flight

Kids scream in my ears - I just want to cuss. A drunk next to me causes quite a fuss. Left my brief case at the gate. Doggone flight is runnin' late. Next time I travel I'm ridin' the bus! Robert L.

Hilarious Sgt. Hinshaw! Will you be traveling by Greyhound? That's the only one LEFT isn't it? I've heard that horseback is a scenic route...

I don't know, Bob, those bus rides can be quite challenging. I can certainly relate to that little tale. I enjoyed it my friend..... Robert.
