up up and away

Caring for Maggie requires a concerted effort by a number of different individuals working separately and together.  Everybody has his or her role and when everybody is in sync, amazing things can happen.  I was thinking that and working on an idea for a post when I came across this picture that illustrates it perfectly. 

That's Jonathan Trappe, an adventurer from North Carolina crossing the English Channel in a seat attached to a cluster of helium  balloons.  Every balloon had to do its job for this to work. He also needed patience  to wait for the right weather conditions, safety precautions if something went wrong, and most of all, an adventurous spirit willing to break a few rules.  It's also wise to avoid items with sharp edges 

If a picture is worth 1000 words, you can thank Mr. Trappe for saving you from having to read those words. Well, at least today you didn't have to.  Things are still rattling around in my brain. 


  1. Oy. I hope all is well. I fancy getting into that balloon chair and taking off, actually. I hope Maggie is all right.

  2. It was so great finally meeting Maggie at the hospital. I can't get over how much alike you two are. You both radiate happiness with a great sense of humor. What a blessing to finally meet Maggie. She just makes me smile! Sorry the sleep study didn't go all that well. They should just do them in home. It would be cheaper and more effective than renting a hospital room for the night. Change that policy while you are at it Sally!


Hi Maggie loves your comments. It may take a while for the comment to post, but you will see it eventually.
