  • Nice story. Thanks for sharing.

    My father, who is 95 years old and still lives in the old farmhouse where he delivered me (and 6 others), once in a while shares a "new one" with me, you know, a story that I have not heard a hundred times before. The last one was during the 1925 Delaware county fair (has an amazing memory for dates) he watched a balloonist build a fire to inflate his balloon...he remembers it slowly filling up till finally, when the tethers were tight, he would climb in and release the ropes to rise up into the sky. Then the balloonist would jump out with a parachute and float back to Earth. Dad recalls watching the balloon sway back and forth till it went bottoms up and then all the black smoke would roll out into the sky as the balloon would fall back to the ground....
