What a bootiful day for a balloon ride!!!!! My Sweet Koobuss and I have been attending all of the Penn State football games this fall! Transportation has been something of an issue. We went by helicopter the first time, and we had a little issue of the mountains in Happy Valley (State College, PA) hiding from us in the fog. It was such a lucky thing that Koobie brought along those parachutes! I had a small ankle fracture, but it quickly healed by the next week.
We went to see Penn State play the University of Michigan last week. Due to my ankle, Lacie rented and piloted a Lear jet...she got a little confused and took us to Indiana as she thought we wanted to see Michigan State play Notre Dame. All she heard was the word Michigan. After that game, I never want to hear the word Michigan again.
She has "Sir Dunstan" in from England this weekend...he lives with Jackson in the UK. You need to go to his blog to get Dunstan's true picture on his most recent post. He's much older than Lacie, but he's a gentleman, and I think they get along well. She drags him everywhere.
We decided to go by hot air balloon to the game in Illinois today. The game is in the 4th quarter, and is quite the nail biter. I had taken eggs, toast, bacon, hot coffee, and donuts to cook and eat on the ride. Here's a picture of us as we float over Pittsburgh, that Mumsie took after we picked Koobie up!!!!
Speaking of toenail biters, Lacie had a little issue landing the balloon. She accidentally brought it down in Lake Michigan. That Koobie...she brought life preservers for us all. Thankfully, that nice hooman rowed out to us and helped us get back in the air to get to the game!!
I think Penn State plays at home next week...I hope so...all of this travel is exhausting!
