I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
Two separate "vacations" caused me to miss regular postings on this blog since Christmas. One week we spent some time with good friends in the State of Washington, and the other found us in Florida near NASA's launch facility.
In each case we flew on Midwest Express. What a joy! The six inches more legroom than airline U provides was sweet. Wow, no cramps from sitting in a fetal position. The food was ok - average. It's been a while since my last trip on Midwest, so I was a bit surprised to find that cash is no longer accepted for food or drink purchases aboard the plane. Credit cards only.
A second surprise was that their wonderful cookies are no longer served on flights that leave before 10:30 a.m. I'll make note to myself to take that into account next time we book a flight.
Maybe it was just luck, but for the most part my flights arrive on time at their destinations. On the last flight home we actually left 15 minutes early as all passengers were already on board. My hat's off to the gentlemen and ladies that made my air travel a lot more fun than was expected.
