It still brings a tear to my eyes!

It still tugs at my guts, and brings a tear to my eyes.........
As most of you know, I worked for Piedmont Airlines from Oct 1984 - 1989.
So, I regularly check out the postings on this web site...... www.jetpiedmont.com which is the Official
Piedmont Employee site.
There are new postings now and then from people I knew and those that I didn't, but get to know about.
Being the sentinmental person that I am, I just can't stop coming back.
And I can't stop going back in memory either. Some may not understand, if they have never had a career and not just a job, but we were a very close knit company. And it wasn't just a job, wasn't just a company, not just making money. That's why it hurt so bad to see them sell her out.
We all take experience and knowlege from everything we do in life.
And I can't help getting caught up in my memories now and again.
There is something that triggers a memory. A sight, a smell, a sound.
Maybe it's the smell of a jet engine exhaust. Or the certain kind of Cologne I wore the first year there. (m-o-njure-jovan)
Maybe it's the mention of a familiar name, or someone saying that there has never been a good company or a good job, cause I know better.
Or when someone says that it's hard to find honest people, cause I remember a time when it wasn't so hard.
Or when I get a good laugh at work, and think of those other good laughs I miss so much that came more often.
And now, though I work for another really good company...
One that I often enjoy going to work to....
What-ever the reason, please understand...........that "we" come from a unique breed of people......
Always did and always will.
Perhaps that mades us different.
I know the same is ALL different!
