|Dr, TL Osborn|
3,5 hours in the horizontal position, on the floor, with my head resting on my backpack. Yup, memorable.
Delays are a little less memorable. With one exception.
Coming back from the Memorial Service of Dr. TL Osborn in 2014, I first had a delay in Tulsa, then in Atlanta. While waiting, I noticed that the 4 hour layover I was supposed to experience in Paris, was drastically shortened. So much that I feared I would not reach my flight back to Oslo. I told the people at the counter, and they recommended I should order at wheelchair.

I thought about itfor a minute and went for it. The whole way across the Atlantic Ocean I considered cancelling the whole wheelchair once I landed. I took melatonin on the flight over, and apart from one visit t the little boys room, I slept the entire trip. Wise from previous trips, I let all the passengers disembark before me, then I tried to get up. Pain! Lots of pain! I stumbled out of the aircraft, and there she was! Waiting with a wheelchair....

Memorable trip. I could even feel my legs again, before I reached Oslo.
