Picture this: Hot air here and there

Many of you know I'm a long-distance grandma. I live in the mountains, and my grandsons live more than 800 miles away in the desert.

Yesterday I shared some of the things unique to my home in the mountains, things likely to delight my grandsons because they're things Bubby and Mac will find only at my house.

Balloons in the morning sky are a common occurance at their place and a common occurance at mine — no balloon festivals required.

Today's question:

Have you ever ridden in a hot-air balloon or would you ever want to?
