Balloon watch

Is it against blogging etiquette to post twice in a day? I guess i'll find out as I announce the launch of "Balloon Watch". Simple things for simple minds i'm frequently told. This weeks simple thing is the very lonely, sad, deflated "Happy 50th Birthday!" balloon that lays caught in a tree along the Interstate. It has survived winds, rain, hail and defies nature. I'm going to hazard a guess that it's been there for about 3 months now, just before Huntington Mall, exit 20 heading towards Huntington. If you spot it, spare a thought for the person who must get the daily reminder of a half century birthday.

Maybe, if it was a spectacular party, it serves as a reminder of good times. Like when you re-discover a carelessly discarded t-shirt after a top night on the sauce and you can still smell the pub off of it...

ah, so you think it's an intentional symbol to represent the greatness of the party. I like the idea. I kind of "look how great MY party was...we even had balloons!"
