It’s Not a Bird…..
By: Pat Coate
Hope Tom doesn’t mind a different kind of flying object this week. My daughter and I took in the Wellsville Balloon Festival on Sunday morning (6am launch!) and what a spectacle it was. Thirty-one gaily colored balloons took flight over a 45 minute time span enlivening the Allegheny foothills with their brilliant colors.
Much to the delight of the crowd, a couple of the balloons touched down in the river before sailing off. My favorite was when someone in the crowd yelled out his approval to one of the touch downs with “You’re the man!” – and was met with a return shout of “But I’m a woman!”.
