Try and enjoy what you have, not what you don't. I can assure you there are far worse ways to make a living than flying airplanes.

I also just like that word "Halcyon" and all the dirty things associated with it! (and yes I understand the past has paved the way to today's CRM)
Yes, the good days are aover, and hey I am not that old at 59.
Before, you went to work and everybody had fun.
Now......god help you if you missed on dot or one comma in your breifing, god help you if you made a good hearted joke that some primadonna considers to be offensive; yer butt will be menaced with job loss.........
But hey, it is happening all over. Miss the flying, don't miss the backstabbing bullshit.
veni, vidi,...... vici non fecit.
