Crayons On a Plane

There was an article in the paper yesterday about a Delta Flight Attendant who passed out crayons along with the paper placemat on her flights. Jewel Van Valin decided after the attacks of 9/11 she needed to ease the tensions on the flights, so while she passed out the paper placemats (wow was it just a few years ago we were actually fed on airplanes) and crayons. For the past six years she has kept every drawing and now is looking for a home for them. She often taped the better pictures to the overhead bins so everyone could see them. She displayed them inthe LAX Airport in Delta's employee lounge but wants the world to see them.

I dont know about you but maybe we all need to go back to a day of a box of 64 crayons and Big Chief Tablets with chunky pencils. I know I miss those days.
