Hi Jim,

If the picture is online, copy the URL by right-clicking on the image and selecting properties or copy image location. Then click Image in the Instant UBB Code on this site where you compose your message or reply and paste the URL into the window which opens. Preview your post and you should see the picture.

If the picture is offline in your file it needs to be published to the internet for this to work.

I think that's the correct story, but would be interested in hearing alternate procedures.

One of my favorite layovers!

Quick snack and a beverage for breakfast. Nap. Train to Cascais for lunch and viewing pleasure. "Cheap chicken" or seafood for dinner back in Lisboa. Home in the AM.

What more could you ask for!

I was "lucky" to be furloughed in the early 70s from TWA and got hired by TAP Air Portugal as a 707 F/E. Five day layovers in Rio de Janiero, Luanda Angola, NY and Montreal. When passing through customs, the local TAP agent gave us our expenses in cash in local currency. (Usually spent the first night on "layover activities"). Single at the time! Had a villa on the beach outside Cascais, with maid, for $95/mo! Lots of "cheap chicken" dinners with beautiful Portuguese woman, some of whom I am still in touch with.

Ended the career as an American Airlines Captain flying 767-300 from ORD/DFW - HNL for five years. Very thankful and VERY lucky!

I look at these, and other similiar experiences as the positives of working for TWA and the journey "She" provided!

I Gotta ask......

To those who flew the International Operation:
"Did you actually get paid for such a grand lifestyle?" [Eek!] [Eek!]

signed:
Still enjoying the memories of Dezzie's Motel.
(I'd put a picture of it on the board, but some of you might "eat your heart out.") [Wink]

Yes we got paid and really enjoyed it.As one Captain described the job, early in my career,it
was going from party to party and the company was
paying for it.I also spent a lot of time at Dezzie's and found lots of cold beer in the toilet tanks.

Actually, my stays at Dezzie's were as infrequent as possible and although rather boring....never, ever involved spending time examining the interior of the bath room fixtures.(toilets)

How did the interior of these items compare at the Celtic?

Occasionally, as a homeowner, I do open those things to do a little repair work.....Must be doing something wrong. There hasn't been a beer in there, yet. [Confused]

Oh, well, maybe next time.

Randy,

My recollection of the Celtic was VERY small rooms, some no bigger than a large closet.

Housekeepers at Dezzies were the informants about "beer in the toilet tanks". [Smile]

Your memories about the Celtic rooms are correct.Also the floors were about 10 degrees off level.

I'm shocked. SHOCKED!! to learn that alcoholic beverages were consumed on layovers. And why was I not informed of the beer in the toilet tanks? I had numerous layovers at Dezzie's, and no one, housekeeper or otherwise, ever told me about that fringe benefit. Where do I go to complain?

If I may digress for a moment, speaking of secrets, I recall an incident that occurred during a reunion of my old SAC Air Refueling Squadron in 1994. A reporter from the local newspaper was circulating around the room during the opening cocktail party, and he asked me some question or other about our mission. During the course of my answer I told him that part of our wartime mission was to transfer all the fuel in our tanker to the bomber except for 5 minutes to clear the refueling track. The next day it appeared in the newspaper, quoting me by name. It set off a mini-firestorm among our group, the former squadron exec saying that, although SAC and the Soviet Union had been disbanded, "That's still classified information." Many of the wives, who had been there during that time, were shocked, saying that they had been unaware of that part of our mission. I said that if the U.S. Gov't. thought it was necessary to put me in jail for that heinous crime they knew where to find me.

At the end of the reunion, while we were deciding where to hold the next one, I suggested Leavenworth, Kansas, so that they could stop by and visit me.

Needless to say, nothing ever came of it, and I remain at liberty (so far).
