WHY ON THIS FLIGHT: I run sales for an advertising technology company; so I spend a lot of time on Madison Avenue

FUN FACT: Met and befriended Ray Charles during the L.A. riots in the early 1990's and began to work with him shortly thereafter. I published Ray Charles: The Early Years with Ray in 1995.

BUCKET LIST: Agrigento, Sicily...A lot of family down there.

GUILTY PLEASURE: (Skipping Mass for)... A day at the Pomona Swap meet hoping to find/buy a beautifully restored 1969 Dodge Charger. If my son is with me, it's that much better.
*MY TWO CENTS*: I was lucky enough to meet Ray Charles once, when I first started flying. I will always remember meeting him, he was one of the greats.

WHY ON THIS FLIGHT: Unfortunately for work

FUN FACT: In the past 3 years, I have lived and/or worked in Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Afghanistan, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York and Washington DC and I love exploring new places.

BUCKET LIST: Hawaii, Hawaii & Hawaii!

GUILTY PLEASURE: Spending a weekend playing and just hanging out with my daughter with absolutely NO work.

FUN FACT: I was in the middle of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

BUCKET LIST: Fly into Space, Flt a Glider, Trip to the Holy Land

GUILTY PLEASURE: Play with electronic games...all day. Live in a Movie Theater. Dream of winning the Lottery

*MY TWO CENTS*: It is interesting that a lot of the answers are similar. Space Travel comes up often. Playing games all day etc. But I have a first folks.....Living in a movie theater. I would love to live in the movie theater...It would always be a comfortable temperature, I love movie popcorn and coke. I love movies....I could watch the ones I love over and over again. On a more serious note, I am glad I was NOT in the middle of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

WHY ON THIS FLIGHT:  Business trip to work with remotely located colleagues.

FUN FACT: My twin sister donated a kidney to me.

BUCKET LIST: To go up in Space.

GUILTY PLEASURE: “Vegging” out in front of TV.

*MY TWO CENTS*: I recently had a couple of Flight Attendant friends ask what answers come up frequently. Going into space and vegging out, decompressing and having a completely electronic free weekend seem to be on a lot of people's minds these days. I didn’t know if Paul was going to fill it out when I first approached him. He was super busy working. I am glad that he did. It made me feel really  great to know that his sister donated a kidney, what an amazing woman. It makes you wonder... how far would you go for another human being?

Going to visit friends in Austin. A dear friend relocated there with her husband last summer. I will be spending four days riding bikes around Austin and surrounding hill country.

I spent 6 months in Thailand back in the 70’s when it was a “war zone”. Lived among the people 18 miles from the Cambodian border. I love island vacations! Recent trip to Spain brought me home 3 days early due to a “life threatening” food poisoning. 

BUCKET LIST: 1. Hawaii - hopefully going next year for our 30th Anniversary
2- Grandchildren - hmmm, not sure I’ll be around long enough! Had my children late and they are on the path to do the same thing.

GUILTY PLEASURE: Reading a book ALL DAY - recliner works best, but on a beach is outstanding.

*MY TWO CENTS*: Unfortunately sometimes when I give these forms out, I don’t get a chance to talk to the person regarding their responses. This is one of those times. I would have loved to be able to talk to Joyce and get more info about Spain, Thailand, Cambodia etc.
