Balloon Release Bouquets 81, 82, 83 and 84.


Trixi released balloons number 81. This might be a good sign as almost all of the found balloons were released by dogs and dolls!


As you can see, releasing balloons turns my dog's eyes into glowing green embers like a hound from Hell! This release was done on the night of February 12, 2009 from Atascocita, TX.


Release number 82 was let go the next morning, February 13, 2009. It was a bright and beautiful blue sky kind of day as the bouquet floated away to the north.


Apparently there was some confusion at Balloon Release World Headquarters. Some of the numbers got mixed up. This is release number 83 which floated away on the morning of February 14, 2009.



And there it goes. Carefully not that this is release number 83.



Now look closely at that evening's Valentine's Day Balloon Release. Number 83! No fear, the appropriate party was found and executed. We will log this as release number 84 in the sidebar. If it is found I hope they mention the pink and red balloons, but both were released the same day from Atascocita, TX. This isn't brain surgery anyway!

Balloon Release 80 Let Go By Bart Simpson Found In Beckville, Texas! 160 Miles!

Once again people released balloons taook the back seat. So far balloons released by Trixi my dog, Napoleon Dynamite, and Lexi who is a teenager therefore not really a person have been found. Now Bart Simpson's has been found!


The balloon was releaed on February 8 from the parking lot of our apartments here in Atascocita, Texas. These releases lifted slow, barely clearing the building, headed north. Dropping out of the sky they were found in north Texas by Gene Williams. Here is the e-mail his wife sent me...

My husband found the balloons! It was in our back 40! lol! Back of the acreage.. no houses around lol!

His name is Gene and I'm Dee Williams

He found it about 10:00 am on 2/11/09...from Alan Mizell

Don't know the secret message tho!

We live in Beckville, Texas.. about 15 miles SOUTH of Marshall TX down 43 towards Tatum/HendersonBeckville on FM 959 between Hwy 43 & FM 1794 is where it was found!

Hope you hear from others you sent

Hugs
Dee Williams



Here is a map showing the location found and air distance traveled. At 160 miles it is far from our record distance but a lot of fun. Thanks so much for letting us know Dee, and hugs right back at you!

Bart Simpson Releases Balloon Bouquets 79 And 80!


Bart Simpson stopped in Sunday morning, February 8, 2009 and released two more balloons. Here he is letting bouquet number 79 go in the parking lot in Atascocita, Texas at about 10 AM.



These balloon bouquets are bigger than Bart and almost pull him away when the wind blows.



The bunch of balloons strangely went directly for the buildings without rising. The currents of air pulled them over the building and then lower again. It's been that kind of weekend with strong winds and currents in the air.



Release 80 went up a little quicker but not fast and amazingly slithered through the grabby branches of a HUGE oak tree.

I watched them sail into the distance, headed north on that strange current, maybe all the way to Canada. In the distance they were still low and going up AND down. Strange bu I have a feeling they will go far.

Powerful North Blowing Winds Grab Balloon Release Numbers 75, 76, 77, And 78.


Here's a unique view of the four bouquets just before release, from the ground looking straight up at them. I was watching the weather news earlier today and they showed a POWERFUL wind streaming up out of the Gulf of Mexico and pushing northward all the way from Texas deep into Canada! Very exciting as all four of our finds have occurred east of Texas, and sometimes I wonder if they fall victim to the sea. If these do indeed head north they could be found in north Texas, Oklahoma, Minnesota, even Canada!

It was a beautiful night for a release this February 6, 2009 at about 9 PM, cool but not cold, with half a moon illuminating the scanty clouds. Each bouquet rose slowly, cleared the roof line, then rose in 45 degree or steeper angles into the northeast sky. I am hoping that up a bit higher they catch a powerful and fast current and get carried far, far away!
