SHOW & TELL #9 - SUZY BLUE

Well it's Friday once again and time for SHOW & TELL.


Hop on over to Kelli's site at There Is No Place Like Home for all the details, if per chance you haven't all ready been participating in this fun blogging every Friday.









For today I wanted to Show & Tell our hot air balloon - SUZY BLUE.


We purchased Suzy Blue and she was delivered to us on May 15, 1981.


We had many exciting times with Suzy Blue and flew her not only in Tulsa but Kansas, Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas and of course the Grand Daddy of all The International Balloon Fiesta every October in Albuquerque, New Mexico .


Check in with Penless Writer next Monday to find out more about our adventures with SUZY BLUE!

Now that's quite the show and tell item. I didn't realize what an adventurer you are! You probably have seen some beautiful sites floating above the earth. Blessings!

Ruth said...

It is just too neat that you have had hot air balloons and flew and ridden in them!! We had a balloon festival years ago in Baton Rouge, and it was so neat to see the balloons up in the air every morning for 2 weeks.

Lyndy said...

Susan my friend, You are just full of surprises. A hot air balloon, how neat. Can’t wait to hear more of your adventures. I have never known anyone who owned one.

Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed weekend.

Wow! We loved watching the hot air balloon shows that used to come to the city we lived in every year. I miss seeing them...but I was never gutsy enough to get in one :)

PEA said...

Well I'll be! Imagine that, you have your own hot air balloon!! How cool is that?? I'm terrified of heights, though, so you'd have to knock me out first and that would kind of defeat the purpose! LOL xox

Julieann said...

Have a wonderful Weekend.

Barbara said...

Susan, you just continue to amaze me. I hope we have a picture of you in it.

Susie said...

How cool are you! My goodness, I think anything I show would be very ordinary compared to this. How fun too! You are quite the adventuresome kind of gal. Thanks for sharing.

Lynne said...

Susan, you sure are brave-I have such a fear of heights. However, I do enjoy looking at hot air balloons and Suzy Blue sure is a beautiful one!

Myrna said...

beautiful balloon! You flew in Tennessee--About that time--early 80s--there was a balloon race, or event of some kind, near us. The balloons would land in a field near our house. Our children loved going down to see the balloons land--some would take off again.

Just think--you might have been in one of those balloons!

Cheryl said...

How fun to own your own hot air balloon. Does that mean your a pilot? or just crazy lol (joking)

Beach Girl said...

Well, that is just too cool!

It's so beautiful Susan.

Sara said...

Wow, a hot air balloon! I am envious. One of the things I want to do, now that I am retired (and have stopped living at work and started working at living, as you say on your blog) is ride in a hot air balloon. I look forward to next Friday and more Suzy Blue stories.

Judy Thomas said...

Hi, Susan! Thanks for dropping by and saying hello. Your hot air balloon is awesome! I think they are so beautiful and would love to get the chance to go up in one someday!

Congratulations on your nomination.

MightyMom said...

you are one cool mamma!! Funny thing, the theme for VBS this year was "Lift Off!!" a hot air balloon...my Sonshine has fallen in love with them now...of course he thinks Skylar the Flying Squirrel (a puppet) is in every one of them :-)

Momma Roar said...

You know I'm excited to read more about Suzy Blue!

Nesting For Natalie said...

Susan,

Get out! A hot air balloon :)!!! That is awesome. What fun you must have with Suzy Blue. Can't wait to hear more.

I love the thoughts on Moonflowers you posted! My constant prayer is that I will have eyes to see and ears to hear, where God is leading me. What a beautiful way you have layed out the words for our walk of faith.

Thanks for the sweet compliments to my blog! I do hope to have something published someday. Just needing time to really write. Sooo challenging at the moment!

Blessings,
Amy
