you know that i'm a sentimental girl.
i haven't watched a TV drama for about five years.
about a month ago, i noticed a promo for a new TV series called
Pan Am. at first, i didn't know what to think...hmmmmm.
then i started to reminisce.
Pan Am was special. the stewardesses spoke two or three languages. many
were registered nurses. they were
taught to be gourmet cooks. you could have your egg scrambled to
perfection in ECONOMY class.
|they awarded travelling tots with "wings"|
for taking flight along with a mini version of THE BAG.
there was SERVICE, there was LEG ROOM
and THE BAG!
the Pan Am Explorer Bag was the very first carry on.
there was a time when you "dressed to travel" by air,
(or by train for a matter of fact.)
the television show is fun to
watch...if only for fashion sake.
it rekindles a time when an occupation was created
for a woman who wished to see the world while making a good living
wage. there were weight restrictions and the notion that
once married, you placed the job behind you. it's all
part of the show along with some cold war intrigue.
i still remember the dream that was Pan Am.
Park Avenue !
big world cities and exotic places to behold...
"the world's most experienced airline."
a Clipper Ship could take you around the world.
the sky's the limit!
