12 Hours, Bottle to Throttle

That's a mantra for pilots, who must stop drinking 12 hours before getting behind stick of a plane. My friend RZ says it often, as his fixed wing responsibilities (teaching, or just recreational flying) often get in the way of a post-balloon flight glass of champagne. We (the crew) take on the chore of toasting the passengers....

That being said, I had two glasses of vino last night at Tisane's (getting home around midnight). The ballooning call came at 4:17 am this morning.

Judy is not a happy camper this morning. And the damn Dunkin Donut's in the area do not open until 5 a.m. ::grumble::
