Wonder what that's like?

I'm sitting here drinking a beer, (Pete's Wicked for those of you who might be wondering) eating chips, while dinner is cooking, going through the camera and run across these pictures from a couple of weeks ago.  I think to myself, "wonder what that's like?" 

Have you ever been on a hot air balloon ride?  Me neither.  Sometimes I think I would like to, but I would probably get sick.  That would not be fun. 

Wonder what it's like to be a speck in the sky?

That makes me think of  Dr. Suess', Horton Hears a Who.  I can hear them chanting, "boil that dust speck, boil that dust speck!"

"We're here, we're here, we're here!"

Thursday Note - For those of you who have asked, I only had 1 okay maybe 2 beers when I posted this.  I know there are folks out there who get it and can appreciate the Horton reference - right Auntie J?  I know my girls will. ;-)


  1. I have often wondered about what it would be like myself! I've never been in a hot air balloon, but when I lived in Colorado they had a big festival every year with hundreds of hot air balloons. It sure looks like fun!

  2. you make me smile mama

  3. nope never been in a hot air balloon. looks scary. p.s.--i love the title of your blog!

  4. Yes I do know what you mean.
    I think once I got over the terror of not being in control I would enjoy the ride. What else could I do?
    I do love your blog.
