I learned to fly in Amelia Earhart's day-- when women were not
supposed to fly. I took the airplane up into the air with no
problem. When I landed, the instructor kissed me-- he was so happy
I had landed safely.

Submitter comment: Lillian is 86 years old; she was a woman before her time as
she was growing up. I would have liked to know her when she still
remembered everything she had done in her life; now her memory has
faded badly. She only has 3 stories which she tells you over and
over again, and 4 or 5 phrases which she constantly says. This
story is one of the stories. Her husband told me she had lunch
with Amelia Earhart many, many years ago at a woman's club meeting.
I thought this fact would be appropriate for this little story.
