Balloon Air

I don’t know whether I can,
Sweet katy, there’s always not,
I mean, I’ll try.

(He hears her.
He hurries through his day.
He almost makes it.
And then, out of the blue,
Like thunder)

He always does his best, though.

(The picture that will make this clear is Here )

biggest smile in a while, actually, dear. i hope you didn't beat yourself up over it!

Ha, that's good! It's a character trait; I couldn't resist having a little fun with it. I hope it'll be a relief to others who wonder if it is something you can laugh about.

I stay in that state of mind and don't box!! Thanks for the link to the artwork.

Thanks Pat! I knew I wasn't the only one. Glad to pass on the link to that art blog to you. Those images are really excellent!

Ouch-a strange sport I've never understood-I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry when I see the picture it is eerily realistic

Hi dear Sue! That illustration is absolutely disquieting. It was unavoidable having to write that poem after I saw it.
