Albuquerque In October

I know it's just the end of May but there is no place quite like Albuquerque in October, especially the 4th-12th. This is the time of the Annual International Balloon Fiesta. I can see it now, "A cool morning, a blue sky, a hot cup of Starbucks coffee, and the sound of gas jets filling hundreds and hundreds of hot air balloons." What an experience! I can hardly wait! Preacher's Wife and I have already made our plans to be there. I love the city of Albuquerque at that time of year. I am here now and I must say I love it especially today because of the low annual humidity. The heat index in San Antonio yesterday was 105 degrees. The only way to keep cool in that heat is lying naked in a pool that is under a shade tree. Thank God I was in Albuquerque and able to keep my clothes on.

Yes Thank God! Older people should never be nude outdoors! The thought of it makes me want to iron things....A Lot. LOL:)

Thanks for the mental picture of you naked. I wished I could stick a fork in my mind's eye.

Dad, what is it with retired men needing to "free" themselves? Example: Failure to Launch and the naked room. I had a friend who's father walked around the house in his underwear, and you knew you were family if you saw the Fruit of the Looms. He also loved to rearrange the house furniture the night before vacations or when they got home. Crazy old man! I'm glad you're sane.

the balloon race here in Longview is pretty impressive too, except for that 85% humidity that goes along with it in July.......

Plano, Texas also hosts a hot air balloon festival every year which I hear is a blast. Just not sure when they have it...
