Sky Watch Friday

Sky Watch Friday actually goes up on Thursday because our dear host is across the pond. Please fly over to Tom at Wiggers World for a complete list of all the bloggers participating. It's something else! Last year my DH reached a big mile stone birthday wise. To celebrate I gave him a hot air balloon ride. The crazy fools waving are me and Bobby G. The photographer of these photos was our balloon chaser. I hope you enjoy the photos. Was I scared? You bet! Did I love it? You bet! xo Lynn

Love it! Something I've always wanted to do. At my age, I'd better get busy with getting it done! Looks like such fun!

I am now taking a diminishing dose of steroids for my Rheumatoid Arthritis pain and it works. I believe the chemotherapy drug is spelled "Methotrexate" that is used to treat a lot of things from cancer to arthritis will be used next. I just relish in being pain free.

So I am not participating in Sky Watch Friday just because I might not be able to make it around to all.


I enjoyed seeing your blog post for Sky Watch Friday and I thought your photography was excellent. If I ever got the courage to go up in one of these it would have to be tied down. LOL

I don't know if you like to read or not but if you do this place is amazing.

I just got my first shipment of used books from Strand's bookstore in New York City, day before yesterday and they are in excellent condition.

They have 18 miles of used books. Think about that—18 miles. I had to start out by just choosing a category, like photography, and go from there.

I don't know how in the world they can keep track of so many books.

Look up Strand bookstore or copy and paste the URL here: http://www.strandbooks.com/app/www/p/home/

It looks so peaceful to be up in a balloon like that. But I don't know if I dare. What if I don-t manage to come down... well down is not so hard.. but I really want soft landing;)
But your shots is awesome:)

Your Sky Watch is beautiful. But I took a peek at the rest of your blog, and I'm in love! You truly have an eye to find art anywhere.

What a great photo for SWF! You are so brave to go up in the balloon. I'm a gutless wonder.

Non common birthday present! And I see you share the present with him! Did your choice was a little bit "interested"?
With last-week-Sky-Watch-post, I understand you like to consider life with altitude!
Have a great wek-end, Lynn, thanks to come and comment on my sky.

I am glad you and Bobby G enjoyed it; I have always wanted to go on a balloon ride...maybe when the next "big" birthday rolls around.
