First of all, thank you to everyone who had us in your thoughts over Rita. Sorry I haven't blogged for a few days. I've been filling up ( or trying to ) my brain with Physiology and man, after having graduated from medical school 4 years ago, and not having practised medicine for almost 2 years, things get a little rusty.
But back to the matter at hand.
Abilene was hosting its Big Country Balloon Fest the past few days, which got me terribly excited because I had never been in a hot air balloon or seen one up close. And one of the attractions was tethered ballon flights.
So, I was really disappointed that during the few days that the festival was held, I didn't even see ONE, because of non cooperative weather ( i.e. windy conditions - hey, the fall and spring seasons in Abilene are real gusty, what WERE they thinking.. ).
Well, at least now I'll have an excuse to bug David into bringing me to New Mexico for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta that's starting end of this month..
