First time I flew was in the mid 70's and I was just a kid. From Texas to Atlanta. Atlanta to Virginia...round trip. I don't recall a lot except that as children, we were escorted a lot throughout the entire time and stewardesses kept a close eye on us after we boarded. We were handed childrens books, colors and coloring books to keep us occupied. I was a bit afraid of flying as a youngster, but as an adult, I totally got over it and now sleep (usually even before take-off). There was one exception..The puddle jumper I took from Grand Cayman to Little Cayman Island...The plane was tiny and extremely old...Gas fumes permeated the cabin and we had to land on a grassy landing strip..So I was a bit nervous on that flight. Let me just say that I was praying.....
