October 3, 2011 – Balloon Fiesta – Day 3

Another wonderful morning watching the balloons fly over us and helping.

The first one to land was the one carrying the flag. Andy ran over to help them fold the flag:

And he kept busy the rest of the morning. Here he is holding the crown line on two different balloons:

10-03-11 A Mass A 049

Part of our helper clan:

10-03-11 A Mass A 048

10-03-11 A Mass A 063

10-03-11 A Mass A 097

And they just kept coming and coming oh my!!!





And a little bit of sad news. When we went shopping this afternoon, we did not lock all the doors (part of my trusting soul) and our GPS was stolen… What a bummer.

Tonight at Happy Hour we were entertained by Linda Wheeler – great singer:

Oh my goodness, Diane, so many gorgeous slide shows of the balloons!
Too bad Mother Nature upstaged the fiesta!
I love watching hot air balloons, but am scared to death to go up in one. (I'm pyrophobic and they have huge flames!)
I love Old Albuquerque, so many neat gift shops and cafes! Grant has a favorite western hat and I have a great Native American basket from there!
No, you don't want to drive through snow, it's scary!
Safe travels to Arizona!

Thanks Kathy,

You may do OK in a hot air Balloon - most of the pilots are great at alevating fears...
So where are you spending the winter.
