  8. Hot air balloons fascinate me! I wanted to go in one for my 40th birthday, but no one would go with me. So I bought a townhouse instead! LOL

  12. Hi my friend
    I took Randy in a hot air balloon on our 10th Anniversary. I loved being high in the sky but darn it, when that blower came on, and the fire blared, I just about jumped out of the basket. I swear our heads were on fire....never again. Been there done it.
    Happy Blue Monday
    Love Claudie

  20. Very pretty, I love hot air balloons and have been up several times. I had the opportunity to take my daughter up last summer; but she chickened out last minutes. Maybe this summer.

  25. I love your post today! Jim always talks about taking me on a hot-air balloon ride...after 16 years of dating and the fact that we have yet to do it...often makes me wonder what causes him to "hold off"! Perhaps he really knows me...and figures our sailboating adventures MAY be enough...or as his Mom mentioned to him years ago...(as she so wished we would get married) that would be a WONDERFUL place to propose! Oh....lol...I love him dearly...lol...but any one have a parachute? LOL....I'd Bail! Hmmmm...perhaps my comment is full of hot air!
