I found a balloon on my ride home today!

It was really windy, and I was scooting home from work on Tijeras, right before it becomes MLK, and this balloon got swept up by a gust of wind and flew directly in front of my scooter. It was too good to resist-- I reached out and caught it!

I came home and grabbed my camera to take a picture of it attached to my scooter, but it blew away while I was trying to take it. Have you seen it?

Are you doing some kind of fictional Balloon Fiesta foreshadowing?

Aww, too bad, but now maybe all of its balloon friends will return for you.

@chantal If I am, I'm certainly not aware of it.

We have your balloon and we have a pin. Give us the scooter and camera and the balloon won't get hurt.

once i was taking off from santa monica airport and climbing out at about 750' when a red balloon (yes, red) appeared in front of me and i watched the thing zip by quite quickly, just to my left. i called the tower to report a small red balloon at 750' on the upwind - they got a chuckle out of it.
made me wonder what a balloon strike would be like...
