So there haven't been

any new posts here in a day.. So here goes...

A man named Mr. Smith was flying from Portland to LA. Unexpectedly the plane was diverted to Sacramento due to fog in LA and San Francisco. The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft, they would be re-boarding in approximately 60 minutes. Everybody got off the plane except one gentleman who was blind.

Mr. Smith had noticed him as he walked by and could tell the blind man had flown before because his Seeing Eye dog lay quietly at the bulkhead in front of the seat (behind first class)throughout the entire flight.

Mr. Smith could also tell he had flown this very flight many times before because the pilot approached him, and calling him by name, said "Keith, we're in Sacramento for at least an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?"

Keith replied, "No thanks, but maybe the dog would like to stretch his legs".

Picture this: All the people in the gate area came to a complete quiet standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with the Seeing Eye dog! The pilot was even wearing sunglasses.

People scattered.

They not only tried to change planes, they were trying to change airlines!

Have a great day and remember, things aren't always as they appear.

Have you ever been on a plane and noticed the controls for the air and the flight attendant are in brail right above you. The thing that confuses me is the light switch is up there also, In brail. Is this really necessary?
