TRUE COMMUNICATION CONFESSIONS

I have a true confession about my communication challenges. It’s a little embarrassing, but here it is: I still own and use a flip phone! Not only is it a flip phone, but the Puerto Rican in me moved me to customize it. I put J-B weld where there once was a display that showed the time and date and I filled in the camera lens.

“A MEAN BOSS” – GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Two weeks ago, I was standing out on the ramp at KACC’s Ardmore facility in the hot Oklahoma sun. I was shoulder to shoulder with others from KACC in our standard aircraft delivery formation, showing our respect to the customer and crew that had just entrusted us with their project and lives.

CONSCIOUS PARANOIA IS HEALTHY

When I hear the word “paranoia” I think negatively of a mental condition. But, being “paranoid” is not always negative. Two of our KING AEROSPACE Cornerstone Principles require demonstrating “Pro-Active/Problem Solving Attitudes” and “Quality in Everything (“No Excuses”).” Living principles and professed convictions of service to God, Country and Family creates in me a very conscious and never ending paranoia. I do not want to fail those who place their trust in us.

PRICELESS MEMENTOS

I finally made it to the “Promised Land!!” I guess I need to add that I was not able to stay, so I am back at work trying harder to be able to one day permanently reside in the “Promised Land” up above.

SURROUNDED BY ANGELS AND HEROES!

I, like you, am blessed to find myself surrounded by Angels and Heroes if I just take the time to look around. I don’t know how many I have overlooked, but I can thankfully think of some of those I have made the effort to see.

MEMORABLE MEALS……A WAY OF LIFE

As I look back over the years, remember that I have provided a lot of free meals to all sorts of people without ever really thinking about it. Maybe it is because there was once a point in my life when I would go a couple of days without much to eat or maybe it is because as a teenager there were many times that I would let my date order her meal first so I could calculate how much money I had left and determine if or what I would order. For most of my adult life, when I eat with someone, my personal policy is to always buy the meal. It is “My treat.” I have explained my policy countless times: “I always buy the meal so get whatever you want. If I ruin your meal, at least I paid for it.” Unfortunately, I have ruined a few meals for others over the years and some of my own!

Heartfelt: HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY

It seems that hearts, or valentines, have always been special to me. I was born “Deep in the Heart of Texas” in San Antonio. My mentors, Herb and Colleen, always had hearts displayed somewhere as they operated Southwest Airlines. More importantly, the environment they fostered at Southwest Airlines was always “straight from the heart.” My mother and father’s favorite song was “Cuando Caliente Del Sol” or “Love Me with All of Your Heart.” The wedding ring I gave my wife was a heart shaped single diamond. Mariachis sang “Cuando Caliente Del Sol” at our wedding and this song has become our song. My valentine for over thirty years has always allowed me to follow my heart (or tolerated it).

Maybe we need to think about what our presence means.
I am sure you have your own thoughts. I’m willing to share mine, right or wrong.

For Christmas – A Post Election Prayer

americanflag

Most of the time I begin and end my day with prayers for people and situations. The day after the recent Presidential election I said this prayer that I got from my deceased mother’s prayer book entitled, “Our Country.” I have said this prayer many times in the past but the words never resonated stronger or deeper within my heart than they did the day after the election. The prayer says nothing about Republicans, Democrats, Independents, the Tea Party, Conservatives or Liberals. I cherish this prayer and want to share it with you.

I Am Those People!

 

 

I grew up watching black and white television shows. The shows I loved would probably not be regarded as politically correct today but “it is what it is.” I watched “The Little Rascals,” “The Life of Riley,” “The Real McCoys,” “Dragnet,” “The Honeymooners” and “I Love Lucy” (Ricky Ricardo’s English was better than my own mother’s English). How can I forget “The Lone Ranger”,” Bonanza,” “Have Gun Will Travel,” “The Rifleman” and “Roy Rogers” plus Audie Murphy but my all-time favorite was the “Amos and Andy Show.”
