"Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon"..



Seen on the freeway on the way into the city.. some of those balloons are not going to make it :) On the way back. I don't think I've ever seen a customized stallion float before. It wasn't only the tails hanging over the end of the float that attracted my attention it was the stylized decoration. I had no idea until Googling 'Customized Stallion Floats' that they could be so expensive, second hand is the way to go.. and even then! I said I was done with flowers for a while :) Happy Friday, take care and stay safe... P.s. Winnie the Pooh quotes are the best!

  1. Horses are such great creatures - to ride along so calmly with their tails blowing in the wind!

  2. I think that could be called a balloonamoon.

  3. The second shot was so familiar to me and I thought about it for a very brief time and I realized that these were perfect replicas of the politicians we have in power in Florida (and Washington!)

    Cute stuff!

  5. It's amazing the things you can see on the road! I agree about the balloons though, I can't imagine that they will all make it.
    P.S. I love Lowell's comment.

  9. Oh yes! Winnie the Pooh, font of great wisdom. ( do hope you took those shots from the passenger side.)
    I agree with Lowell, especially as regards our national capitol. I posted a stallion posterior on inauguration day and since then have only come to believe I was being overly polite.

  10. Balloons always cheer me up, especially since I once worked with a young man with learning difficulties who would shout "BABOON, BABOON!" every time we saw one.

  12. Those tails look very funny. We see those horse carriors very often here around. There are many jump races in the nearby riding school.

  16. Great eye spotting both of these!
    At first glance, I asked myself, "I wonder how many balloons will be lost before that van gets to it's destination?" Nice photos Grace!

  17. The balloons seem to symbolise a message...Grab the sunshine while it lasts...(Certainly applicable to Melbourne weather)...Amazing information about the stallion float...

  18. Any horse box is expensive, ours carried three as we needed it for shows and racing. Love the balloons as you say I wonder how many will actually make it! Cheers Diane
