Are things as they seem...?

I know that you’ve all heard the old saying, “Things are Not always they seem,” …. Well,… sometimes they ARE…!!

Two men dressed in pilots' uniforms walk up the aisle of the aircraft. Both are wearing dark glasses, one is using a guide dog,and the other is tapping his way along the aisle with a cane.
Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the cockpit the door closes, and the engines start up.
The passengers begin glancing nervously around, searching for some kind of a sign that this is just a little practical joke.
None is forthcoming.
The plane moves faster and faster down the runway, and the people sitting in the window seats realize they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the airport property. Just as it begins to look as though the plane will plow straight into the water, panicked screams fill the cabin.
At that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air.
The passengers relax and laugh a little sheepishly, and soon all retreat into their magazines and books, secure in the knowledge that the plane is in good hands. Meanwhile, in the cockpit, one of the blind pilots turns to the other and says, 'You know, Bob, one of these days, they're gonna scream too late and we're all gonna die' !!
Just thought you could use a chuckle !

Back when I was learning to fly, we were discussing the dificulty of learning to land. A friend of mine at the flying school, already a licenced pilot and pretty good at aerobatics, said that he didn't like landings either. He said he always closed his eyes when he landed a plane. I'm sure there was more than one person there that day that believed him.

Hi- Jo says you haven't been feeling that great....
The trees are letting their pollen fly now and every I know has kleenex in their hands. Hang in there for a few weeks, and you will be as good as new.
