On Memorial Day our family took a little trip to Voorheesville, one of my favorite local railfanning places. It is only about 20 miles from our house, and it is a nice place to go and relax for a few hours. The new bike trail (former D&H Albany Main) and gazebo were busy with lots of activity. But, we went for the trains... and this was Harrison's first time out to see them.
It was a little hot, so we didn't stay very long. And part of the time was spent walking on a portion of the rail trail. But, we did catch three trains while we were there. To protect his young ears from the noisy trains we kept Harrison back from the tracks, and he slept right through their passing. Oh well.
And straight out of the "are you kidding me?" files, we decided to order a pizza for lunch and have it delivered to the park where we were sitting. Several local pizzerias were closed, either because it was Monday or the holiday, but one chain had a location under 4 miles away and they were willing to deliver. So we placed our order, and in the process were notified that it would be over an hour to cook and deliver it. That was okay, though it seemed odd. When the delivery boy showed up, we found out that the local pizzeria was closed and the order had been sent to a different pizzeria that was literally 60 seconds or so from our house. They had delivered it 20 miles! Had we known, we would have tipped him more. But, when we placed our order the restaurant never told us.
