Sunday With Jamison and Southwest Airlines

Photo: On Sunday We went to Southwest to see our daughter Jamison

On Sunday, Larry and I had a delightful adventure. We got in the car, Valentine gifts in hand and drove into Dallas. Love Field to be exact. The day was gloomy and rainy. We had special security clearance and found our way to a lobby where Jami waited for us. She hugged us like crazy. I was happy to be there too.

specific one is in honor of Herb Kelleher the founder of Southwest Airlines and who recently passed.

There are no words to describe the atmosphere in the building. The hall ways are sunny and bright. Jami’s co-workers are amazing. They welcomed us like we were old friends. Just standing in the offices made me happy. How does a company manage that? Gathering people with such positive attitudes not to mention an environment of Positive reinforcement and joy.

Larry had the best day….he smiled a lot. I personally think that it is because he got to…..

We were in the simulator room. It is huge, quiet, spotless and almost overwhelming for me. The simple fact that the brilliant pilots who we trust every day, train in this magnificent space made me want to whisper. This is how a simulator looks from the outside…

Jami was a wonderful tour guide….and then one of the flight instructors called to her. He allowed us to sit inside of a simulator.

I sat in the co-pilot seat but did not get a photo. I was in awe. The entire surface was covered with buttons and screens. Awe.

During our time at Southwest, everyone we passed greeted us, smiling and making sure we were having a good time. {we were}

Our time went much to fast. It was a good visit and tour. We met the most amazing people and sat in a simulator, but to be honest…my favorite part was that huge hug from Jamison.

Love you.
