Thank you all for your kind encouragement on my first ever balloon trip. I am sending you this update from far, far away from my home. You see, the winds reversed their normal course and they carried me westward. I don’t know if you were able to recognize Mount Hood in the photo of my last report. My paw sort of ended up in front of the lens. Sorry about that. Here’s a better picture.
Anyway, as I was about to tell you, I ran into a bit of weather out west. My balloons got all tangled up in the huge trees in the forest there. I had to make an emergency landing and figure out how I could repair my craft so I could get back in the air and on my way home. Fortunately I happened to land in the Magical Forest of the Easter Bunnies and Chicks. The bunnies and chicks told me they could help me out even though I would probably attract a lot of attention.
I had no way to pay them for their help but they had an idea. They would help me get my basket airborne again if I would give them a ride to Seattle. They had some Easter egg hiding to do for the children there and they would love to travel by egg balloons. I knew I didn’t have many options so I agreed.
Those Easter eggs were not only magical they were quite the sight – all those colorful egg balloons up in the air.
The basket was kind of crowded with the three bunnies and all those chicks. I never did get a chance to ask the little pink chickie why she wasn’t yellow colored like the rest of them. It might have been a good thing I didn’t ask – she might have been sensitive about it.
I did learn that while bunny ears may be very, very soft, they also tickle if they get too close to your nose!
After saying goodbye to this crowd, I am going to try to make my way back home. I don’t think these magical egg balloons will be much good for flying after Easter is over.
Have a wonderfully joyful and magical Easter!
