It's Friday and that means Postcard and Haiku day!
I have two postcards for you.
Another from the Memento Box.
The back of the postcard reads:
Experiment, 2000, oil on board, 36" x 24"
c 2004, Inez Storer, from Mementos, 30 Postcards,
published by Chronicle Books.
And the second postcard from the
Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta
(my old home town).
The back of the card reads:
"The launch field is the site of the Balloon Fiesta's mass ascension
when hundreds of balloons at a time go up in waves. Actual
flight times for balloons average one to two hours, but the
entire ballooning experience -- including pre-flight preparations,
flight, and post-flight celebration -- may take three hours."
And, lastly, a photo from my memories.
October 1981, the first year we crewed for a balloon in the Fiesta.
I'm the photographer, recording for history something every balloon pilot
and crew dream about ... landing the balloon in the chase vehicle!!!!!!!!
Mr. Dragon is the one in the back on the right with the big smile.
I miss him.
up, up and away
memories of other days
love gone to the stars
A big thank you to our hostesses:
Wishing YOU well and a joy filled weekend.
