Cyber kid finishes International Tour!

The Cyber Kid at the helm B767ER (Rome, Italy - Jan 2009) "Hey!  How you doin'?"

Hello friends –

        So the first quarter of 2009 is behind us!  As you may have heard last quarter, the Cyber Kid was being displaced off of the NYC 767ER International to fly the ATL MD88 Domestic.  So, The Cyber Kid and Cheeky (his wily monkey companion), finished up their International stint with a 3-Day trip to Istanbul, Turkey! ... <cue music>...

Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That's nobody's business but the Turks...

       But I digress.  Istanbul was indeed our last International destination (for now!?) but we also managed to add Lyon, France; Amman, Jordan; Frankfurt, Germany; Pisa, Italy and Dublin, Ireland with repeats visits to Sao Paulo, Brazil to our list of worldly destinations!? :(  So be sure to check out all the new International pics in the AVIATION/MY AVIATION ADVENTURES page!!! (including the Sao Paulo return to a NYC Blizzard!?)

       NOTE: At posting, we've begun the Domestic MD-88 training and looking forward to visiting friends and family in the larger US cities as well as the opportunity to "grow" the infamous Hooters Restaurant list (which sort of stagnated on the International circuit!)  Be sure to watch this space for updates, pics and News!? 

       Outside the cockpit, I was able to get some time in early April to grab Alex (Little Dude) and Cheeky (Monkey) and, utilizing the "company" plane, hit Daytona Beach for a little impromptu visit prior to MD-88 class! 

       Great times were had by all, hanging out with FUBAR Hall of Famer Mark “Armadillo” as well as Maria "SuperFan" and Bachi (GrandMa for you scoring at home!?)  The mini-FUBAR Upper Management Conference was a big hit as the kids hit the beach, campus, movies and of course Mickey's home! 

       The visit was a major success as Mark and I once again discussed our plans for world domination, cooked on the grill till the cows came home (to be eaten :o), enjoyed mass quantities of donut holes (don't ask!?) and a few days of obligatory PS3 Star Wars action!?....   Even Little Dude got in on the action trying his hand at dog training and suggesting grilled meatballs (tasty) with our pasta!?...

Here's a few additional pictures from the week long festivities -

Little Dude with "Bachi" and Daddy Boys & Armadillos getting "Goofy!" Uncle Mark, Little Dude and the Girls...

       In other sibling news, Jessica was unable to attend the Florida travels but she has been busy growing and having fun nonetheless.  Wrestling with Alex has become a favorite "pastime" and saying "NO!" to just about everything else sums up most days!? - She does however eat like it's the last food we're ever going to bring!?...

       However, she WAS afforded a "rare" opportunity when Alex decided he wanted to "allow" his little sister to go visit Thomas the Tank Engine with him & The Cyber Kid this year.  Jessica thought the train was really cool at around 50 yards BUT, at distances of less than 10 feet - Not so much!  She had a great time (both visits) however and enjoyed the small (Free) tractor-train ride they provided!  Now she wants her big brother to break out the Thomas toys so she can re-live all the fun times!?...

       Be sure to check out all the NEW pictures of Alex & Jessica's adventures this past quarter in their respective Photo Albums and YouTube content!?...

Jessica, Alex & "Creepy" Thomas!?  

So, with all that said (typed), Check out ALL the new pictures of ALEX and JESSICA's adventures in their galleries, and all the new pics in the MY AVIATION ADVENTURES gallery as well as all the FUBARHQ news and content -

As always, there's ALL NEW pics in My Aviation Adventures, Alex, Jessica!
