O.K. Here I go, Hummm three things.



Three places I would pack my bags for fast:::::::
#1 To See My Daughter Renee
#2 To Paris
#3 Venice







One of my best trips, St. Marks
loved all of Venice. Went three times.
I will pack my bags in a New York Minute.
















Three on screen films I like to watch:::

#1 Greer Garson in Mrs Miniver, I love that movie
must have seen it 30 times.
#2 Albert Fenney and Redgrave in the story of Winston
Churchill The gathering Storm and the war years.
I am not in a time warp, I Just like these.
#3 Anything with Russel Crowe,
I think he is better than Anthony Hopkins










Three moods that describe me:::

#1 I panic easily (the sky is falling)
#2 Have a tendency to lose myself
in Painting to avoid thinking of depressing things
#3 Of course there's the shopping MOOD







Three things I'd like to do on a week end:

#1 Go Out to Dinner with friends -- Chinese
#2 Garden if nice
#3 A good Movie if it is Raining.












Three things I remember for my Childhood::
#1 The Watch My Dad gave me on my 16 th birthday. Some one in High School stole it in Gym.
#2 The night I went to my first Ballet I was about 10 years old wit a new velvet
dress and Dad gave me a corsage.
#3 My first Prom Dress and My Mamma's tears as I left that night.















Things I can not say NO to.:::

Mom and I leaving for fishing in the Keys

#1 Crispy twice cooked Duck
#2 Fishing in the Keys
#3 Chance to go to the BOSTON POPS

















Three things I can not live with out:::

#1 Coffee

#2 My Friends

#3 Losing this weight.







I am now going to play it forward and sending
the three questions award to a wonderful Blogger
you all know and if you don't know her you are
really missing out. Pat has a great personality
and always has a post of interest. I always learn
something at her site. So here it is- go see her.

THE FRENCH STARTED IT!

Everything you need to know about HOT AIR BALLOONS

It started in FRANCE 1783 Pilatre De Rozier launched the first. The passengers were A DUCK,A SHEEP and a ROOSTER
they flew 15 hours.
Next::First manned attempt came 2 months later. Two French brothers Joseph and Etiene Montgolfier launcher in the centre of Paris.
100 years later Swiss scientist A. Piccard (remember th name)
achieved a manned flight into the STRATOSPHERE height of 52,498 feet
Altitude record 1960 of 102,000 feet was Capt Kittinger.
The Round the Globe was 1999 Swiss Betrand PICCARD
and Jones.
Now lets have some fun.


The biggest Hot Air Show in Maine is in Lewiston.
I think.




During the Civil war Gen Grant used hot air balloons for scouts of the Confederates













































































I put the belted Galloway cows into the painting for fun.




Hope this gave you a little enjoyment.
