Crazy how tiny this place is!
I overnighted in cleveland a couple nights ago, and we catch an early morning flight from baltimore (BWI for flight attendant nerds) to cleveland(cle) Then we meet the pilots who have just joined us. We normally will get different pilots every day, if not multiple sets every day. Rarely, but it does happen, we get the same pilots for 3-4 days.
This time I meet the captain, he's telling me, for some reason, about his crash pad in chicago that he just bought and how his family flew up to fix it up, and how he has a connection in cleveland to go home to nashville. How his trip ended in cleveland, i'm really not sure. They usually end in the home base, which for us would be chicago. Stop me if I've confused you. Anyways, he mentions how he went on a trip with some college kids to build houses in Mexico, so I assumed he was a church goer. I mentioned how I had a bunch of friends who go to lipscomb (or went to). Then he said his daughter goes to harding, then, realizing the COC connection, told him I went to ACU. Then he said he went to ACU too!!! NO WAy!! What are the chances we both went to a small christian college in the middle of the desert in west texas!!!??? crazy.
after we overnighted in cleveland, we took 4 legs over to seattle where we could relax for the better part of the 17 hrs (a really good overnight) in a beautiful city. We took the bus downtown to the fish market, which was crazy fun. A couple of hrs later we decided to head back and catch the bus. As I'm waiting, leaning against the light post, i look up..and ...
Heeeyy!!! It was a friend of mine from ACU that I was in Flying Cats with. Greg Estrada, I'm sure a lot of you know him. Just ran into the guy on a random corner in Seattle, Wa. Apparently hes doin some mission work for the summer there. Wow. We didn't talk long, but it was a nice blast from the past.
Its crazy where you run into these COCers.
