Overheard this Fathers' Day...
A friend and local pilot thought his father (a years-ago pilot) would enjoy a chance again at the controls. So he arranged on Fathers' Day for his Dad to go up with an instructor. The "old man" brought it in for a squeaker. Here's what I heard on tower frequency:

Tower: Understand that was 'Senior' at the controls?

Instructor: Affirmative.

Tower: Well we certainly don't see them that nice very often. Thank you, sir, for showing us all how it's done.

Senior: Well, I may not be as good as I once was. But I'm as good once as I ever was.
