Silly balloonists – they’re not supposed to be downtown (it’s dangerous).

But I love it when they’re blown down here, because it’s fun to see them above the house.

The neighborhood dogs have other feelings the balloons. When you hear them barking up a storm, chances are good there’s a balloon nearby.

I may be willing to take a ride in one of those things if they figure out a way to steer them. Until then, I’m happy to watch from below.

On a side note, even though I’ve lived in Albuquerque for years now, I’m still amazed by how blue our sky is. Every day I’m like wow, that’s pretty.
