Oh, Lucky Man!
Welcome to my website!
Instead, this site is, and probably forever will be, a work in progress. In addition to expanding the Airline Career and Photography pages, I am adding other topics.
Go to the pull-down links at the top of this page for more topics.
BREAKING NEWS! I’ve just finished my latest airport photo page, entitled Midwestern Airports. Take a look!
Then sit back, relax and page through these, my stories; I hope you enjoy them.

Lucky Man Origin
My cousin, Dennis Brent, came up with this clever vanity plate down in California. To the casual observer, it may not register, but look closer. It’s yet another example of ingenuity by squeezing a longer thought into the maximum number of letters/numerals. I freely admit to stealing the idea (with permission!) and restoring the spelling.
As you can see by this picture, Dennis does, indeed, consider himself a lucky man. So do I. Lucky to have been born in America. Lucky to have grown up in a loving and caring family. Lucky to have enjoyed relatively good health. Lucky to have survived my younger years! But perhaps the luckiest part of my life has been to have found a career in an area so diverse and rewarding: commercial aviation. At times, I couldn’t believe my employer was paying me to do what I loved so much.
So there you have it: the origin of “Oh, Lucky Man!”
Update! I recently finished co-editing a new book with Jeff Kriendler. It is available on-line at www.twamemorybook.com
