Okay, as previously discussed, I had a fun day on the 4th. There were some strange things happening and I intend to let you all know about that tomorrow. However, I saw something last night that I have never seen before and I wanted to share the experience and photos with you.
I enjoyed some fireworks in Wellington, FL, grabbed the beginning of a great story, and while waiting for the traffic to die down before even attempting to leave the parking lot, we saw some people letting loose some 'Chinese lanterns.' As you can see from the picture, they are pretty simple devices.
No bigger than an apartment clothes hamper and made of very lite material with a small tray of burning fluid for the heat, they are basically a miniature, un-piloted hot air balloon. I definitely thought they were very cool; however I couldn’t help but be reminded of liberal politicians of both parties. Not much in the way of substance, and held aloft with a bunch of hot air via a spark that quickly burns out and crashes to the ground. Anyway, enjoy the photo.
