Watson's wander your blog description and photo's was done well. By the time we participate it will be good to have yours and the forum information for reasonable expectations of this event.

May I ask how or for what you use the portable speaker for during your travels.

Thanks

Thanks.. we enjoy putting the blog together and have met many awesome people via it.

In our Airstream the built in speakers point directly down above your head when sitting on the sofa. I work full time and like a bit of background music. The little speaker allows the music to be several feet away instead of piped directly into my brain. (And it was cheaper than replacing the Airstream radio with a bluetooth enabled model)

Living in a parking lot

...my favorite crazy noise was the airplane alarm clock that buzzed the entire fairground every morning around 5AM ! He flew over us then turned around and did it again, then the disco music from the clubs down on the field would crank up and announce Breakfast was Ready.... it was wild to live inside of a Fiesta !

We had a GREAT time at our first but not last Balloon rally. All the people we met were fantastic. Thank you Ken for getting this together. We hope to join again next year. What a special time. A shout out to our wonderful neighbors from Washington and Oregan. Hope you come visit us in San Antonio Texas. The welcome mat will always be rolled out.

Catstream glad you had a good time. Balloon Fiesta was the only place I can say I was glad to get up at 5 am. I did enjoy so much sitting in the drivers seat of my MH watching morning glow and drinking coffee. I wish I could have been there this year.
Take care and have I will see you down the road. Kay

I hope down the road includes Blanco one more time!
We( Peter and I and Dennis and Mary) sure did think of you and talk about how you had been to this event and drove your Airstream all the way! I also sat in my PJ's with coffee looking out the window watching til I saw those dawn patrol lights go flying by.
We had such a great time and we even saw John and Charles, there were many there from our Blanco Christmas Family,Wish you had been there too KaY!

And thanks so much to Weirdstuff, aka Nancy, for inventing and sponsoring the First Annual Balloon Fiesta Dog Parade!

I think the dogs were wondering what was going on, but they all seemed to enjoy all the attention and hand pats from the spectators once we got going.

Thanks also to the spectators who put out water dishes for the paraders (parading dogs, not people! ). I know our big black Cerberus was very thirsty and very grateful for the drinks, and even so, he drank a whole dish of water when we arrived back at the trailer.

Nancy, this was a terrific idea--we should carry this on into Tradition!

Ken, what think you?

Vivian

Timmaah had a great idea in his blog -'I think the puppies should throw candy to the crowds at their next parade !

We might have a little trouble with puppies going after the candy themselves!
