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.]
