    :) Lovely, GMa The last could be my favorite, I would never, never, have thought of reaching for a lost balloon. I might have had her just completing a volley ball serve.
    Great prompts.

    Thank you too, for signing me in on Mr. Linky. He was crabby with me last night.

    The sky’s the limit on what we can tell about the weather without our weather widgets.
    That free spirit with the foot anchor is definitely a conundrum.
    What a bummer to be a statue and lose your balloon.
