    Inflation


    2010 - 08.28

    We hear about inflation and how scary that can be, but last night was what I would term the greatest inflation of all! Depending on where you were standing, it could certainly be one of the scariest places in the world! As it was, I was standing firmly on the ground with my friend and fellow photographer Mark (you know, the one at www.Markhardymon.com) at the Grove City Balloon Festival. It was an incredible night and my very first balloon glow event. When they started floating off, it reminded me of bubbles bursting from the neck of a champagne bottle.

    It might be the “dog days” of summer”, but even the cats are feeling the heat! The temperatures have been stuck on a streak favoring Hell this season, but all things that move are still hanging in there, including… sprinkler attack dog Finn, climbing tree cat Azure, and lazy chair guarder, Kuma! A vote was taken and the season of “Fall” (even though it introduces Winter) is welcome at our house.
