Sky Watch Friday

    My husband  took me to a hot air balloon event years ago and since then I have been fascinated by the beautiful balloons that come in all shapes and colors .Is it the idea that they are floating high above us like a big bird?   I often listen for the sound they make when letting air out. My sister, niece and I followed this one around a farmers field in Ohio last year. We finally got close enough to take a picture...

  2. We were on a crew for one once and were in the chase truck to pick up the passengers when they landed. They ended up inside a locked field and we had to do a bit of trespassing to get to them. It was a lot of fun.

  3. I have never seen a hot air baloon up close. It would be awsome to take a ride in one.

  4. Nice photos, especially I like the first one.


  5. There is something about a hot air balloon which sparks the imagination. I think it goes back to the wonderment of childhood...

  6. I saw a hot air balloon earlier today. There is a festival in Boulder I think! we were in Lafayette for our youngest sons cross country meet. He had shingles and it really took the wind out of his sail! But he placed 34th today. First run since getting so sick. There were 26 schools participating and at least 7 men per team. Wow!
