That was my mom's comment about getting her pilots license back in the
1950s. She was not fond of dad's piper cub, but preferred the comanche.
I don't remember the cub at all, but I do remember the comanche. [he
sold the cub after I luged down the cockpit with used milk when I was 3
days old and he was bringing mom and i back from the hospital and she
had fed me just before he hit a patch of turbulence. Oops. First, last
and only time I have been motionsick.]
