Airport Chapel

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Last week I had a three hour layover at the Dallas-Ft. Worth airport. After a lunch, perusing the bookstores and a couple rides around on the tram, there was nothing to do but walk around. In Terminal E I noticed a small room designated as an airport chapel. A place for travelers to stop and think and pray. Just […]

30 Minutes At LVS

Friday, May 4th, 2007

“Anyone sitting here?”, I asked the lady. “No.” She pulled her arms in a bit and gathered her purse closer to her. Thanks to the “print your boarding pass the day before” option at Southwest Airlines I was in the “A” group. Which means I was at the front of the cattle call free for all […]

Never An Owner, Always A Manager

Monday, February 4th, 2002

Several years ago I was in the Minneapolis airport waiting out a flight delay that was lasting well into the evening. You can only fill the time so many ways. After I’d eaten dinner and browsed the newsstand I found a seat and pulled out a book to read. An elderly woman took a seat […]
