I’ll be very honest with you. I’m borrowing from myself…again. It works, especially if you are crazy busy which I am right now. Not complaining. This is a tale about R and B’s excellent adventure. I hope you enjoy it. My hubby works for one of the kindest, most generous individuals you could ever meet. He has grown his company over the last 57 years and still closes on Sunday. That in itself is remarkable. He thinks about his employees and what they might like. How different is that? He decided to sent several groups of employees on day trips. Our group wanted to go to Santa Barbara which was fine by me. I love Santa Barbara. I love California. Period. When I was transferred there many years ago, I was smitten. My boys were born in L.A. If we weren’t planning on retiring elsewhere CALIFORNIA would be in the running. Granted, I haven’t lived there for ages…traffic is worse…BUT it was home for a very long time. It will always be in my heart.
This is Mark Tillman, the former Pilot of Air Force One. He took the photo of hubby and I. How cool is that?
These gentlemen were in charge of Air Force One for President Clinton and Bush (H and W).
Mr B. hired them after they left that gig. The gentleman on the left is the co-pilot. They were awesome. Hubby asked them about 911 since they were flying Air Force One that day. They talked about how surreal it was, what it was like having fighter planes surrounding you as you were flying, the horrific scene that was unfolding in the United States. Goosebumps!
