    By the way, I have unsubscribed and resubscribed to your email list, and I still don’t get your post notifications in my inbox. I’m not sure what happened but I’m not too happy with the WP people.

  6. Beautiful photos. Looks like Humpty Dumpty made it to the balloon fest.

    Here in Colorado Springs, we have an annual balloon fest over the Labor Day weekend. Some years, they pass over my neighborhood. The last two years, they’ve gone in a different direction.
