Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 228: Veteran's Day In Flight

During my flights yesterday, the crew recognized Veteran's Day and celebrated current and former members of the Armed Services with a lovely appreciation message, followed by applause from the rest of the passengers.  Much of the in-flight magazine for this month was also devoted to stories about Delta's work with veterans and other national initiatives to support veterans, primarily for transitioning to the civilian workforce.

I did have to stifle a laugh, however, when the flight attendants came through the cabin offering everyone a "Veteran's Day truffle."  I'm not sure that Lindor knows its truffles are now being used to honor and celebrate this particular holiday, at least on board Delta flights!
