My Dyslexia

Having the skill to write, spell, and punctuate has never been my strong suit. Growing up as a young child I was always nurtured to be creative and artistic which came naturally to me but I could never quite grasp written language. I now know that it's a learning disabilty with a name: DYSLEXIA.



I write from the heart and I make my best effort to get the words on the page properly but as you'll see I don't always succeed. I ask you to enjoy what I write and post but to be understanding and kind. Brian

Bucket list birthday flight

Check this off the list. Yes, I'm just saying someone just turned 51 but don't let him know I told you.

This week for Kevin's birthday his brother Pat, our dear friend Colleen, and myself took a hot air balloon ride. You must add this to your bucket list if its not already on it. Great fun had by all. We arrived at the Bloomington, IN airport to meet with our pilot and to be picked up and to travel to the site to inflate the balloon. Oh--you get to help. Then you all get into the basket and the ground crew assist you off the ground slowly and as any young girl would do you SCREAM your fool head off. Just kidding. You really sit in the bottom of the basket and cry quietly to yourself because you are a grown ass man. Sorry I digress. LOL Really you just ask when the in-flight service starts because you need a drink. All kidding aside it is the most peaceful ride you will have when the burners are off, when they are on they make it so you can't hear for a bit. The pilot was able to sit it on the side of the hill in a persons front yard with no problems at all. You then one at a time get out and hold the basket on the ground and file out onto the ground and you, as any adult would do, get down and kiss the ground. LOL you look at all your friends and say CHECK I can now check that off my bucket list.
