Last night an old college friend came into town while on a business trip; we had a nice dinner.

I can see outside my office window, several large hot-air balloons lifting off from a lot nearby. I don't know what the occasion is, but I want to ride....!

They're a lovely sight, aren't they! We see a few around here. In fact, one came down in the farmer's field next door! I'm not sure what happened to it or why.

We had a hot air balloon invasion here a few years ago, I never found out where they came from! I was just walking the dog round on a lovely summer evening, and suddenly they all started appearing over the brow of the hill - they just kept coming! They were a stunning sight, but you'd never get me in one of them.

I took a hot air balloon ride in California years ago. It was wonderful! Because you are moving at the same speed as the wind, it is perfectly still all around you. :D

When we lived in Colorado there was a hot air balloon race every Labor Day and our house was in the flight path. We'd climb up on the hood of the station wagon and watch them. It was wonderful!

Getting a good score at work. And free chocolate!
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

My dad had a stroke Friday and lost the use of his right side, so I'm home in Ohio dealing with everything. The great news is that the doctors believe that, with intensive therapy, he should be able to make a full recovery within a few months and live independently. This is much better than we thought when we brought him to the hospital.

I probably won't be posting a lot for the next few days/weeks?, but I do like checking in occasionally and seeing what the rest of the world is up to. ;)
