Subject: Netletter nr 37 - Between Ourselves Possible duplicated due Anik problems! . John Dehlgren send us the following - The Key-Bird Who has heard the wail of a siren As an ambulance speeds down the street Or the deep throated roar of a lion Down in Africa's jungle heat; The piercing scream of a Tiger As nightly it stalks it's prey, Or a huge locomotive's shrill whistle, As it roars through the night on it's way. But these sounds sink to a whisper You have heard nothing 'til I'm told Of the bloodd-curdlin' cry of the "KEY-BIRD" In the Artic's frigid cold. This strange bird looks like a Raven, Only it's gruesome, hideous and bold, As at night it sits on the North Pole Crying, "KEY-KEY-KEY-RIPES but it is cold. 'The first time I heard it was in Moncton about year 1941/43. We were sitting in the TCA radio operators room, awaiting the "RCA" message from the departed flight. When it was heard "Blind" We never knew who did it. Cheers..John -=o0o=- . You radio hams - Charles Mackie tell us that Ron Reed on VA3EE from Parry Sound, Ontarion, is off the Cuba for a couple of weeks as he enjoys the people and beaches down there. . Ray Valois sends us this little gem - This is a story of a very alert United Airlines agent faced with a cancelled flight and trying to find alternate flights for passengers. There is of course a long line up at her gate check-in position. A "gentleman" who probably deserved to fly as cargo, storms up to the counter and says: "I absolutely must get on the next flight out and it has to be first class". The agent replies: "I am sorry, sir. I am doing everything possible to get everyone affected by the flight cancellation on the earliest flights out. I am sure that I will be able to work something out to your satisfaction." He replies, very loudly: "Do you have any idea who I am?" The agent immediately picked up the mike to the airport PA system and said: "There is a gentleman at counter 17 who does not know who he is. If anyone can help him, please come to counter 17 to assist in his identification". Everyone in the line up could not help but smile, some broke out into fits of laughter. The "gentleman" replied: "(Explicative - the usual four letter word) F... you!" Without missing a beat, the agent replied: "You will have to get in line for that as well, sir". The agent got an award for handling a difficult situation. -=o0o=- . Thought for the day contributed by Vesta Stevenson You know you have been flying too long when - ...
