Up, Up, and [not] Away

A few weeks ago I attended the wedding of my darling niece, Sarah.
It was a beautiful, fun wedding.
The next day was the "gift opening" time in the backyard with close friends and family in attendance. It was just gorgeous out that day, and Sarah got the idea to write a little note about her wedding day -- put this in a sealed plastic bag -- tie it to two helium balloons, let it go, and see where it lands!
Inside the packet, she included her email address and other info, so that whoever finds this thing, perhaps on the far side of Canada, or somewhere in the U.S. of A., or maybe in China, or even some other planet -- they could write her back a note of their own. Well -- apparently it just wasn't meant to be!
Of all the places in the entire atmosphere of the earth this carefully packaged Note to the World had to end up...... well, just click on the video below, and you'll see what I mean...

Then again, perhaps some very local BIRDS will write to her!

What a great idea! Mother Nature is a fickle friend. Congratulations to your beautiful niece.

It was a lovely idea anyway, and it sounded as if no one was having a bad time no matter where it landed!
