Ken,
I hope you know that the TTQ competition was completed early...I have my tiara, my bouquet of Tootsie Roll Pops, and that silver thingie I hold in the other hand(makes it REAL hard to carry a beer or margie)...will the official crowning still take place...?
mike

I am local, and my office is right outside of the grounds of the Balloon Fiesta. I would like to convoy with you guys and then pull into our parking lot off Jefferson. Think that would be ok? Joe

This is just wayyyyy to good.

I'm going to talk to the judges about the mental part of the pagent. We need to decide if talking to oneself on the Airstream Forums should add or take away points. Just so you folks know Mike=ScrapIrony-2.

So back to TTQ - I don't know, Mike I understand there is some really major compitition out there.....The prize list is really attracting all kinds of contestents.

Ken J.

Ken,
There's a term for ousting royalty after placement, but I never had to know it...should I be looking in Webster's or rallying the royal guard...?

Our balloon rally master of the english language is Uwe - perhaps he may have a good word to describe royalty.

Well, one can dethrone or depose of a monarch.

But more usually, we like to talk about the punishment phase. Most seem to want to talk about guillotining, but I personally prefer defenestration!

Oh, I'm not sure that defenestration out the window of a Safari or so would be much of a punishment. More of a mild thud, probably ameliorated (for the victim) by a bottle of Shiner Bock.

But, then, those who really deserve defenestration would be those in charge of the WBCCI, and then we're talking about tossing somebody out of the lofty heights of an Airstream motorhome window.

OK, I guess I'll have to go out, now, and buy a cake...

Defenestration...sounds a little too much like something that would make me an alto...OUCH!!!

Uwe, I hope you have kinder words...

Ah, ain't that bad. Defenestration is just throwing somebody out of a window, a tradition started in early 15th century Prague. Of course, they threwing undeserving tyrants out of windows from a couple of stories up, not out of an Airstream window.

OUR TTQ has been in exile in Quartzsit all winter. But before you throw him out a window, , or behead him, make sure you get the tiara back from him.That cost BIG $$$$.

Just to be fair(political statement), I have a throw-down tiara stashed...

"...undeserving..."...!!!??? I have lied, cheated, bribed, behaved shamelessly, and done other things no self-respecting politico or royalty(oxymoron AND truth-in-advertising) would have THOUGHT of...all in the name of a herald I MUST have been born to(don't anyone tell my mom)...

"...tyrant..."!!!??? Well, I know that such insubordination is worthy of reprehensible retribution,,,but I'm benign...I'll have one of my minions do you in.

I have, in my youth(yes,I had one...Yes, I'm still enjoying it) thrown myself out of a few windows...and I have landed in some really deep stuff somewhere around the same time(s)...what more do you really require for qualifications? I'm not anyone's grand-daughter(that I know of, but it wouldn't help me with this audience if I was...)...

I also(ok, WE, own an Airstream Motorhome, BUT, it looks like a silver-tuibey kinda thing with wheels in the front, too, and requires much Forums assistance and commiseration to keep it happy...Oh, yeah, it also requires periodic infusions of a bartering system called...C A S H...besides, I don't think you'll find me on the WBCCI podium of self-inflicted importance anytime in this century...I don't own a vest or beret, and the only flag flying below the Good Ol' Stars and Stripes is the Flamingo wind sock and its baby...oh, and the windchime made of bleached bone fragment, obsolete light bulbs(from an AS), fishing line, frame chain, a rusty tin can, and a gift for visual/auditory art from Mr Michael(Artstream)...hot glue and an imagination brought all this together; I'm the proud, current guardian...

If you wanted to vote for me, but missed the innaugural crowning, PLEASE!!!(shameless groveling) send that vote for me in TONIGHT...
BUT WAIT!!!!!!!!!IF YOU SEND IN THAT VOTE TONIGHT(FOR ME) YOU GET A SECOND VOTE FOR ME FREE11111 TAX NON-DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS ARE ALWAYS APPRECIATED...

Hope I didn't leave any flat stones unturned when I crawled out from under them

As always, I hope, despite the banter, that this finds all of you healthy and happy...
mike

Well, Mike, I'm not sure this changes anything or not. ANYBODY who gets to spend winters in AZ and tell people staying in cold winter torture chambers like Angel Fire about it should be punished at some level!

(In truth, even though it snowed yesterday, spring is coming here. Tiny little green grass sprigs are starting to show, and places like Taos are covered with buds!)
