At my 80th birthday party in Battle Creek, Michigan recently it was sunset and we were all gathered around the pool at my son Daniel’s home and someone spotted an air balloon drifting along lazily in the blue sky above. It passed by very low and then drifted out of sight and then a few moments later a second balloon appeared and this one seemed to be so low that we could almost reach out and touch it. The people in the balloon waved at us and then they too disappeared from sight. I guess I can honestly say that I got two balloons for my birthday. What a nice memory. May God bless America and keep our troops from harm.
