Falling and Bouncing

 A  L  O  H  A ! 
"People used to ask me 
what I wanted to be 
when I grew up and 
I’d say ‘Happy!’
 That was all I 
wanted to be."
           Goldie Hawn

Did you want to
be a firefighter?

Unusual Happenings?

"Courage is 
the resistance to 
fear, the mastery 
of fear, not the 
lack of fear." 
Mark Twain

Oh! Ball Drop!
Multi-colored balls
all moving together.
Is this a 
political statement?
Poor joke,
but. . . 

Bouncy Bouncy Balls!
"Success is how 
high you bounce 
when you hit bottom."
           George S. Patton

The Crowd Goes Mild
“If you can't explain 
it to a six year old,
 you don't understand 
it yourself.”
                  Albert Einstein

I'll build a stairway to paradise Link
"Every beloved object 
is the center point 
of a paradise."
Like a ball
to a child?

[17,000 bouncy, bouncy balls 
dropped in Novato CA
Feb 4 2017 High Noon]

I'm thankful for small towns.

Albert Einstein is absolutely correct. It has to be simple to be perfect!

If the bouncing balls are a political statement,it's a nice one!

It never occurred to me to want to grow up happy when I was a kid. I WAS happy and assumed it would always be so

Firemen and bouncing balls, a happy and colourful event.. we need more happy 😀😀

Adam said...

I never really wanted to be one. I knew the risks even as a child

Nancy Chan said...

We all want to be happy when we grow up. I am afraid of heights even seeing people go up the high ladders will make my legs go jelly! Must be a special event for the falling balls?

Mike said...

I was looking at the first fireman picture trying to figure out what was going on. If I would have gone to the second picture right away I could have saved myself a minute.
