Up, Up and Away





Have you ever been up, up, and away
in a beautiful balloon?

Once
long ago
in a galaxy
far, far away
my spouse
arranged a hot air balloon ride
and champagne picnic afterwards.

The couple that went with us --
 a business client and his wife --
we kind enough to not tell us
that they'd been on a hot air balloon excursion previously
and that they'd crash landed.

We touched down with only a jolt or two
and the chase car was waiting 
to transport us to our feast.

Somewhere in my memory box
there's a small photo album to commemorate
that birthday.
That spouse is now planning parties
for wife # 3.

That's my story.
