‘Chick-Fil-A’, At Albany (New York) Airport Will Deliver — Albeit Just In The Airport.

I don’t think I have ever had ‘Chick-Fil-A’. So, I am NOT sure what I am missing. Yes, I have heard stories. I just looked. The nearest one to I is in Nashua, which is 90-minutes away. Hhhhm! The next time I am down South I will have to keep an eye.

I heard the story about these College kids that desperately wanted some ‘Chick-Fil-A’ chicken, on my radio, during my morning walk. That it was Albany Airport resonated. I think I have only flown into Albany Airport once (and I am sure I have never flown out of it). But, that was a pretty special flight for I. One I still remember — 52-years later. Yes, it was in 1968! 52-years ago. So, why was it so special. First airport I ever flew to on MY OWN. I was 14. Not sure exactly how it came to be. We, my adoptive parents and I, were travelling in New York state — we living in Buffalo, NY, 1967-1968. We were in NY city, by car. We were driving back to Buffalo, via Albany. Somehow my father had a ticket Albany, which he didn’t want or need. I convinced him to let me use the ticket and fly from LaGuardia to Albany — and for them to pick me up. He agreed. It was to be my Summer adventure. First flight on my own. I had been flying, frequently, all my life. But never on my own. It worked out. It was an adventure. I waited at Albany for them to arrive. So, that was the main reason this story piqued my interest. ‘My’ airport. I am sure there was no ‘Chick-Fil-A’ in 1968.

These kids should have had the gumption to first call up ‘Chick-Fil-A’ before they pooled their money to buy that $98 ticket.

‘Chick-Fil-A’ would have brought the food out for them. Now we all know. I am sure they are going to be doing a roaring business — following this publicity and now that everyone knows that they will deliver.

Only in America.

51762_ng_lincoln_coverAs I have oft mentioned I (still) religiously read each issue of “National Geographic“, cover-to-cover, each month. The only magazine that I now read on a regular basis. Even the “Reader’s Digest” doesn’t make that list anymore, though I do read it, plus any and all photographic magazine I come across, more often that not.

I have been reading, with some interest, this month’s cover story on Lincoln’s funeral train. I knew some about the train and the voyage, but, of course, not to the level of detail in this article. It had an interesting ‘sidebar’ about race-relations in Buffalo, N.Y., over the century, including school segregation, and that was fascinating since I did attend High School, in Buffalo, during 1967 – 1968 — in what was a mixed school at the time. Kensington High School (which is now closed).

This morning I came across this photograph, on pages 44-45, and noticed the date on it. TODAY. April 25, 1865. 150 years ago. To me, an avid fan of the President, this seemed something worth commemorating. I had a very quick look. Didn’t see anything obvious. I can’t, to my horror, find a SINGLE Google Doodle for President Lincoln! How can that be? Yes, I know that they try to avoid political figures BUT President Lincoln, easily and incontrovertibly, transcends politics.
