I try my hand at food service

It's the start of another work week, so you know what that means: a blog post!

A few weekends ago, I was summarily recruited by one famous teacher dudette from the T.O.C. to assist in the selling of adirondack kettle corn and kettle corn accessories at a Harvest Festival in Colonie's Heritage Park.

I know exactly what you are thinking: that is a great place to watch planes approaching Albany International from the south. You read my mind.

Unfortunately, I was so busy bagging, selling, dodging, and snacking on popcorn that I was not able to take in the full extent of the viewing opportunities until the way out, when this very classy SW B737 made it's approach.
What a poetic picture. A human-made flying apparatus in the background and nature's version in the foreground.

And here is my photographer's depiction of the plane flying into a tree.
Don't tell anybody this, but if I had known our location, I probably would have worked for free. Plane-watching is its own reward.
