So, here’s another attempt at yet another photo challenge. This one has to have the color green in the photo. Today I am thinking . . . Geee, trying to win these things is quickly becoming an obsession for me.
In those days, when I would hear about a tournament, my first thought was always “No, I am not going to enter. It would be crazy for me to enter. There is no way I’m going to do it.” Then I would see the trophy and something would click. It always happened. I couldn’t help but drool a little and think “Ohhhh! That’s nice…” Before I knew it, I was playing. Funny thing about those trophies, each time I won one I gave it to my kids. They collect dust on their shelves.

I took this photo of balloons in the distance last week when Mary Elizabeth, Stephen and I went out “to chase” balloons that flew from Freedom Weekend Aloft.
In this photo, if you look closely, you can see a person in the basket of the balloon releasing the fires. You can see the excitement of people running around as the balloon takes flight. You can see the Carolina sunset sinking into the trees as the balloon and it’s passenger reaches for the sky to bid good night.
