It seems like it was only yesterday, but it was over 35 years ago when I sat at a table at a prestigious Dallas country club with the late Herb Kelleher and the now retired Colleen Barrett. I was a rookie in the aviation industry running Associated Air Center and I was in awe of them and the fact that they had invited me for lunch. Shortly after arriving at the country club, I asked them why they wanted to have lunch with me. Their sincere response was they wanted to get to know everyone at the Dallas Love Field Airport. Herb insisted that I have a drink with him as he enjoyed his Wild Turkey at lunch that day. I told him that I was dumb enough sober and would only get dumber if I had a drink that early in the day.
