A blog full of bits of historical information, comments & observations, photographs (old and new), oddball ramblings and other totally random stuff.
I think your expression looks like you have just witnessed something alarming. The balloons look like they were made into an animal shape (maybe that scare you a bit).
I'm squinting in the sunlight! This was taken in my grandparents' backyard -- never remember being scared there, though!
Your look suggests that maybe one balloon had just burst!!!
Could be, but in THAT dress, what could possibly go wrong?
You gathered up a good collection for yourself there!
I surely did, Jo -- never underestimate the power of balloons!
A theme picked weeks in advance ties us to Paris.
I'm thinking that EVERYTHING ties us to Paris these days; it is our only hope!
That expression on your face! Balloons can create static electricity. Perhaps you were zinged with an electric shock just as the photo was taken?
I was probably annoyed that everybody was making such a fuss; never liked the limelight -- not then, not now!
A very appropriate photo. The coincidence of our balloon theme with the terrible events in Paris is more that a little unsettling. We are all Parisians this weekend.
We are indeed, Mike.
Thank you; it just seemed right and appropriate -- it said what I needed to say.
