Balloons and Cows...

That was an interesting teaser! What in the world would a hot air balloon and cows have in common? Check my final photo out!

Well for one brief evening two summers ago in my part of the world a great deal. You see we have a hot air balloon race here in our area the first weekend in August. On this particular evening my hubby, mother and I gathered on our front porch to watch the launch. Keep in mind that the balloons took off over ten miles away! But as luck would have it and the shifting winds, the balloons got closer and closer! So close in fact several began landing on the property next door much to the chagrin of the neighbors beef cattle! It was an exciting evening for all. People pulled in our country lane to watch the parade of landing balloons and for a little while the world seemed a little smaller. Here's to another wonderful summer chocked with family, friends, lemonade and those wonderful lofty balloons! The above card is an interpretation of that wonderful season called summer...
