Lemmon also writes about owning, restoring and flying vintage airplanes and his adventures with collectible cars, vintage boats, trailers and motor homes. His wife Margaret, his partner in life and adventure, is a prominent part of the story. (She had a pilota€™s license, too.) Youa€™ll feel as if youa€™re right beside him in the cockpit as he tells stories of cross-country flights in small planes and big onesa€”of the pranks airline pilots playa€”of a terror-filled near-disaster over the Pocono Mountains in Tannersville, Pa.a€”and, after Margareta€™s passing, of a series of surprising events that defy explanation but that lead to unexpected revelation and personal enlightenment.
