Giving of Thanks

When I used the phrase "the wonder and woe" of the renovation and decoration of our Tudor bungalow, I had little idea of the challenges and obstacles life would throw our way. This year we closed our business and I found a job I love at one of the oldest establishments in the US only to have it fall victim to the economy as well. Needless to say much of our renovations had to be put on hold. And through it all my rock, my shoulder to lean upon has been the immutable LondonHIM.

This weekend was a banner birthday for him and to celebrate I took advantage of his trip to Dallas to help a friend (that's my guy to a tee, generous and helpful to all) to band together an intrepid group of family and friends to tackle our living room ceiling project as a surprise for him. A bead board and beams event....to the rafters and beyond.

A bushel of thanks to all involved. Although there is more to be done, I couldn't have gotten where we are without you. Thank you for helping to honor LH on his special day!

And to the Honoree, Happy Birthday my love. You are more than just my rock, you are my dog walker, my barrista, my sous chef, my dishwasher, my DRIVER, my best friend, my sounding board, my antiquing buddy, my photographer, my mechanic, my handyman, my biggest fan, my advisor, my heart and above all my hero! Thank you for all this and more...for being my everything.

I can totally relate. We began finishing our basement when my husband's job was going great! Then the economy tanked and it took us almost 10 months to finish due to budget issues and the birth of our second child!

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic that caused air travel to plummet, airlines and aircraft leasing companies have canceled orders for 299 of the 737 Max. Another 240 of the jets have have had their order status changed and Boeing no longer counts them as firm orders.

The company still has firm orders for more than 3,800 of the 737 Max on its books. And some of the airlines that have pushed back the delivery of the jet due to the number of planes they have parked say they hope to take delivery of the 737 Max some day soon.

737 that we're currently operating. It burns less fuel. It's an excellent airplane. And certainly in this environment, we would love to retire some of our older aircraft, avoid some expensive maintenance and a substitute with the newer airplanes."

Southwest originally planned to take delivery of 107 737 Boeing Max jets between 2019 through 2021, and another 19 from aircraft leasing companies. But it so far has received only three of those planes due to the grounding. Under an agreement with Boeing, it will now take delivery of no more than 48 of those jets through the end of 2021, and defer orders for at least 59 others.
