An airline pilot was scheduled to take a flight from New
York to Los Angeles. The weather was too bad in New York to
allow his usual on-time departure. The weather in New York
finally cleared, and the pilot asked for his departure
clearance. He was very dismayed to hear that he had another
delay due to the increased traffic now leaving New York.
Sometime later he finally received his clearance and decided
he would try to make up the time lost by asking for a direct
route to Los Angeles. Halfway across the country, he was
told to turn due south. Knowing that this turn would throw
him further behind schedule, with some agitation he inquired
to the controller about the reason for the turn off course.
The controller replied that the turn was for noise
The pilot was infuriated and said to the controller, "Look,
buddy, I am already way behind schedule with all the delays
you guys have given me today. I really don't see how I could
be causing a noise problem for pedestrians when I am over
six miles above the earth!"
The controller answered in a calm voice, "Apparently,
Captain, you have never heard two 747s collide!"
It was a quite morning around here. Dad and Andrew are still gone most of the time, helping that farmer with his harvest. I worked in town again this afternoon/evening and all went smoothly there. I just got home a little bit ago, got cleaned up and ate a delicious Organic orange from Azure. :)
I'm guessing tomorrow will be a lot like today.
It is really cooling off here in the Northern part of the country. The air was very crisp tonight when I stepped out of the nursing home and then again on my short journey from my van to the house door!
Happy Autumn everyone and God bless!
