This is pretty funny. The other day when I came home I bent down and petted my cat and said "Oh I missed you so much!" Our housekeeper was in the kitchen and overheard me, Chris walked into the kitchen at the same time. Our housekeeper assumed I was talking to Chris and said "Sir is a good man" (She would never call me by my first name). Chris started laughing because she knew she heard me talking to the cat.
Ever since then it's been our ongoing joke, me being a good man. Only if she knew, LOL!
Air America: The Story of the CIA'S Secret Airlines by Christopher Robbins
Non fiction (?)
The author does a great job going into the clandestine world of Air America. I like history books and this one helped me fill in some gaps regarding the Iran Contra affair as well as the war in Laos and Cambodia.
Here it is almost 20 years later and I just realized that the planes that took me back and forth to Okinawa when I was a Marine was Air America.
Some great stories. Overall a good read.
