    Thumbs up 'Twas The Night Before Christmas - Non-Rev Edition

    A Christmas tradition here in the forum
    --with apologies to Clement C. Moore

    'Twas days before Christmas and there at the gate,
    not a non-rev was stirring, all could but wait.
    All held boarding passes securely in hand,
    hoping against hope they wouldn't have to change plans.

    When out on the tarmac I heard such a clatter,
    I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter.
    Away to the window I flew in a flash,
    but slipped on spilled coffee and hit my head on the glass.

    When what to my blurring eyes should appear,
    but a blue maintenance truck, decorated with eight tiny reindeer.
    With a driver so handsome so lively and quick,
    I knew in a moment it must be a licensed mec-han-ic.

    More rapid than eagles his comrades they came,
    and he whistled and shouted, and called them by name:
    "On, Mikey! On, RJ, On Howie and Vixen!
    On, Comet! On Cupid! On Donder and Blitzen!"

    To the left and the right to the undercarriage they flew,
    in the steady advance of a well-practiced crew.
    They spoke not a word, but went straight to their work,
    and changed tire and brake then turned with a jerk.

    Then quick as they came, his accomplices they rose,
    "ready to roll Captain" were the words that he chose.
    But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight,
    Merry Christmas fellow non-revs and have a good flight."

    In mask & face shield wishing you a merry Christmas from an appropriate distance.
    Keep'em Flying
