For Ivauir's benefit, I would like to point out that I predicted your call to this class on 31 Jan. My mystic skills are once again proved correct. KingAirGuy, you could have saved your $10 by contacting me and requesting my soothsayer, nay, sorcerer type skills.
Ms Cleeo told me dat!
Ms Cleo say your class gonna be ...
FedExbound (better change dat name!)
plus 9 folk that cannot figure out how to get on dat internet thing
You know pegasus, you are pretty smart for a fella that can't figure out how to get a picture in his profile . You win the no prise this time - I put it in the mail yesterday
Pegasus and Ivauir - have a possible chance to extend 60 days minimum, 90 days maximum in the Navy. My question is what are your considered opinions on my most probable class date.

If I extend I can get out no earlier than the 1st of June. I'm wondering if there is a snowball's chance of sneaking into a May class or am I in the June/July/August timeframe. I'm thinking July, but I don't have your skill in the dark arts.
Thanks for the entertainment,
P.S. I would just get out to be available as soon as possible but the 6000 a month is not a bad thing and flying is fun versus sitting around watching mtv eating poptarts (to quote albief15, I think)
All right true believers! I've got predictions to ease your thought process through these perilous predicaments (rhyming is alright but I like alliterations!). So please predicate these predictions on the following prerequisites:
1) Stop loss remains in effect
2) 2 classes per month
3) You can/will take first class offered
Firstthird - 23-May-02
T1apilot - 11-Apr-02
Beechdriver32 - joining Pegasus and me in the 25-Apr-02 class.
You guys have a tough decision to make. I was faced with a similar decision, but when the MAN offered me emancipation from indentured servitude, I took it! Now I am a longhaired, goatee wearin’, unemployed, stay at home dad. Fortune favors the bold!
BTW = By the way
I don't know where you got BYW, but I hope you didn't damage your eyes turning and burning in your Tom Kitten!
You are a gentleman and a scholar. I am in total agreement with your predictions for Beechdriver and T1apilot. I also agree that we shall meet class Apr 25th, happy hour, 7:37pm, 24th of foresaid month, cocktail in hand. And looking forward to it!!!!

It was a double or nothing bet, he lost on UPS calling me in January. I had a job and he didn't (he had SWA in the bag who needs to work when your in the pool). I thought it only fair to allow him another shot at the green! He would have been happier had I been right, and I don't mind losing the cash to him..
Hey Rowel, how about a free lunch tomorrow... On you!! J-boys ok?
Oh Wise one, when will I get the call to interview with SAW? Hand carried my paperwork to Heather 17 NOV 01 in Virginia.
Answer this one correctly and you can open up your own psycic hot line!
I been waiting with the rest of you, and it seems like there is quite a bit more folks in the Southwest Pool, then on the Pool list.
JM told me April looks good...this was about a week and a half ago. I thought I might squeeze into late March, but with the class size shrinking I might not make it. JM also said that Stop loss guys getting released will affect me adversely.
Im a March 14th hopeful, but when I talked to JM a few days ago, she said to expect early April. Looking at the pool list that seemed kinda far away, but what do I know! I was refraining from asking too many questions as not be be a pest...
On another note, SWA was voted the Number 2 company in America to work for and the Number 1 airline by Fortune magazine, so I'm sure its worth the wait! Hope to join you guys in one of the March classes, keeping fingers and toes crossed!
