Eagle Flies

I’ve wondered about that saying, “the eagle flies on Friday” — meaning (I think) the mail or an important letter (or check) comes in on Friday. Why an eagle? Maybe the answer is in this pic. 🙂 Have you heard that phrase? Did I remember it correctly?



  1. Yes, Lessie
    When we had the family boat business in the hey-day years, the paychecks would be written on Friday to be picked up at closing time, but someone always needed theirs early, so the talk around the place was ‘Has the Eagle flown yet’, and if yes everyone would scramble to get their pay.
