As I sat at the flight school on Christmas Eve digging my wifves Honda CR-V out of the snow. It reminded me of a good joke that was passed to me on email. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good flight.
Buen Dia! (as they say on Montery Center)
Santa is about to take off on Christmas Eve for his annual ride when FAA inspector Juan Rivera approaches him in front of the hangar. “How long has it been since you’ve flown this sleigh,” he asks the Big Guy. “Exactly one year tonight,” Santa replies. “Well,” says the inspector, “I’d say you’re out of currency. We’d better take a ride together.
Wondering of course whether he did indeed turn in his paper certificate for a plastic replacement, Santa invites the inspector aboard. Being pretty quick, Santa couldn’t help noticing the 45 strapped to the inspector’s belt. “Why would you need a gun on a checkout flight?” Santa wondered.
“Well, I’m not really supposed to tell you this,” the inspector replied, “but you’re going to lose one on takeoff.”
