M is for

Montgolfier Balloon

W-a-y back sometime around 1995, Philip and I visited the Air and Space Museum in San Diego. While we were there we saw a model – lifesize, maybe – of the Montgolfier balloon.

“Oh cool,” I said. “I like it!”

“I’ll buy it for you,” said Philip.

Did I mention that we were young and silly?

And you know what…a few years later we found a Montgolfier balloon for sale. Of course, Philip bought it for me.

It’s tin and was once filled with candy. It holds a special place in my heart because once upon a time, Philip promised to buy me the Montgolfier balloon. And he did.

More Mac and Cheese, please!

    Love the story. :) Good men are hard to find. You know, the kind who do what they say they’ll do. :)
