special shapes balloons

ok, here are a few special shapes balloons.
i just learned that i can only load 5 photos at one time on here. o well. anyways, there are numerous special shape balloons and for a couple mornings they have just these balloons going up, a special shapes rodeo...i didn't make it back out for this event as i had planned. but there is always next year. today is the last day of the fiesta for this year. won't make it there today either. rest has been needed as well as attention to my house before church today. a little tidying up will go a long way for anyways, the following is the Balloonist's Prayer. there's a second version as well which is basically the same just worded in the past tense.

The Balloonists' Prayer
May the winds wecome you with softness. May the sun bless you with his warm hands. May you fly so high and so well, that God joins you in laughter and sets you gently back into the loving arms of Mother Earth.

a short note..the cow to the right is HUGE. she is the size of 3 or more balloons put together. but she's one of my favs to see every year. when i first arrived in Albq 20yrs ago, there was a polar bear just as huge and Beautiful. i haven't seen it since. The Polar Bear is my all time favorite. i have a photo of it somwhere? maybe i can get it scanned and show it to you one day.... not included in these photos were also Nemo, an angel, Wells Fargo stagecoach, a witch, a buffalo, bumble bees, and a space man. those are what i saw on wednesday.

to view ALL my balloon fiesta photos, go to my myspace account once you get there under my photo is "View My:" right next to it is "Pics" you may not be able to see the word "Pics" because it's blue but put your cursor over it and it'll show click on "Pics" and all my albums will come up most all my photos are stored there. The Balloon Fiesta album is toward the bottom. once you click on it all photos will show. you can click on one of the photos and it will enlarge for you, then you can click on "Next" in the upper right hand corner and see all the photos enlarged one at a time, if you'd like...and view any other albums if you'd like.

We could just kick ourselves for never going to the balloon festival when we lived in NM. Great pics!

I love the balloons. I would love to see it someday. I hear there was a tragedy this year. How sad.
