monday's memory: the one with air force one

while i was teaching, the strings teacher next door to me was a pilot in his spare time.
as in, had his own hanger behind his house, his own little plane.
(WAY cool, right?)

one day he came to school and told the band teacher and i that the President was coming into town
AND that since they had temporarily closed a couple of runways, the only flight path he could possibly be flying in came right over our school
our football field, to be exact

so we held class outside that day
and our kids got a kick
(as did we)
of seeing air force one fly over
