Now that's a balloon!! RE/MAX brand.

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

Time for only a short blog!  It has been a busy day.

I lived through frustrations, almost contracts, and a lot of fun.

So what can one blog about when one has nothing to blog about.

Oh, YES!!!!  The balloon.  I've been planning to post this fantastic balloon.  My friend took this picture for me because I'm a RE/MAX agent. I've been a RE/MAX agent since 1993!   He was at some balloon fest, probably at New Mexico.  He is a fantastic photographer and I questioned where he'd got the card. 

 "I took it myself,"  he replied.   How'd you like to be in that basket underneath!!remax balloon

Wow, that is great! Don't you think that all of us at REMAX should get a balloon ride?

Hey Barbara - I've never seen that balloon before... How cool is that, I love RE/MAX!

I would love to go up in the balloon, but it scares the heck out of me!

Kristin, it's amazing how big that thing is!  Thanks for comment from fellow RE/MAX agent.

Patty, when we first got a RE/MAX office, the balloon was brought in.  The balloon, evidently, has a mind of its own and jeeps follow it to see where it goes in case it gets in trouble.  With no automatic steering, I decided I'd forgo the ride.

Charles, prove it.  What do I have on? 

Debbie, I like RE/MAX too.  The 95/5 split is hard to beat!  I'm sorta scared of the balloon too.  They did some bucket rides where the rider just went straight up and then back down when the balloon was in our town.  Someone sued, saying the balloon came down too hard and hurt her.  Since then, the balloon hasn't been back.  The people are too litigious and balloon owners are cautious.  I'm not sure whether it is that way in all cities.  What do you hear?

Up here, annually I think, they have hot air balloon festival. I have seen ReMax balloons. Not that one but the ones in the background.

Barbara:  After looking at this picture very closely... and taking an even closer look at the balloon... I am thinking that the absolute LAST place I want to be... is in the basket underneath the balloon... thousands of feet up in the air.  Thank you... but no thanks !  I'll just be down her on the ground... telephoto lens in hand... taking pictures.

Steven, I'll bet it is impressive to see the sky filled with huge hot-air balloons.  I think this time the Beeman improved  reality!  I may have a new advertising picture!!

Carol, kinda nice, isn't it?

Karen Anne!  You're adventurous with spirit!!  You'd step right into that basket with a smile on your face!!

Michael, I'm glad it got your attention!!  Thanks for comment.

Barbara:  I have thought it over... and have decided that I would be perfectly fine getting into the basket under the balloon.  Just as long, that is, as it does NOT leave the ground.

Barbara, I have not had the excitement yet of a balloon ride, been on a tethered one, but not one free flying. Guess I will have to do that sometime just to experience it.

Karen Anne, come onnnnn.....don't be chicken!  It is pretty hard to climb in those baskets so you might as well ride if you get in!

Mary, that was the name of the non-flights....tethered ones.  I couldn't think of the word to save me.  You don't have that problem do you?

Greg, that Charles is one whiz with his picture tricks!  I like my picture on it too!  Thanks for stopping by.
