Opps!





It had been a good idea at the time, or so she thought. No one could talk her out of it either. She always day dreamed about ascending up in her flowing white dress escorted by the love of her life and gracefully tossing her bouquet for all the single ladies to catch. No one told her it would turn into a missile sending them all screaming and burst into a thousand pieces when it hit the pavement. Ruined dreams dashed and the photographer missed the shot!

We used to have a hot air balloon club that would fly over our house once a month. Our yellow lab, Beau, would be so frightened by them, that he would literally lose bowel control as he ran through the house. (In other words, they scared the shit out of him. hee)
