It must be nice to have a job where you can be wrong 95% of the time and still have a job.  Our weatherman predicted a snow storm this morning.  Look to the right.  This was probably the nicest morning of the year.  Hot air balloons are only launched in the best weather.  This is a common site in Colorado Springs.  In September there is the Colorado Balloon Classic where dozens of balloons are in one spot and common people, like you and I, can walk right up to them, talk to the pilots and get unprecedented access to those really cool baskets that hang from them.  If you look closely in the picture you will notice the plane.  This restaurant has a conventional building that transitions into the aircraft.  Yes, you can sit in the plane and eat without the stupid cart hitting you.  In fact there is no cart or cramped seats, or those little pillows that give you a crick in your neck.  You don't have to go through TSA security and they don't lose your luggage. If you think about it, our town has so much to offer.  Here, in one picture, are two cool things.  How many towns have hot air balloons flying over it and a real aircraft restaurant?  That just scratches the surface of all the really amazing things that you will find in Colorado Springs.  What does your town have to offer?
