Up, Up And Away!



If you’re anything like me, you need a bit of a pick-me-up from time to time.

An escape-of sorts.

A chill pill.

Some ‘me’ time.

Some space.

A freaking break!

Well how about joining me in a beautiful balloon ride?

Don’t worry, we’ll be back in about three minutes 😉

Naturally, I’ve already selected a nice jam to accompany our flight to EVER-Y-WHERE!

Are you ready?

(Drum roll)…

(Casey Kasem voiceover)

“Our in-flight jam for today’s trip is “Up, Up And Away” by The 5th Dimension.”


Now, before we go, let me share a bit of trivia.

Dr. T. V. McCoo, grandfather of Marilyn McCoo (Lead singer of the 5th Dimension), delivered my father, and his siblings.

In fact, Marilyn’s father, Dr. Waymon McCoo, was one of my and Ron’s Grandmother’s classmates.

How cool is that?

And so…

Let’s go!


And we’re BACK!

Enjoy the rest of your day.

See you this Thursday for “My Jams ’91”

Lady G 😘💋

    I had to go back in and change the wording of one of the sentences in this post. It was awkward as hell. My son was like, “Mom, this sentence needs to be reworded.”

    Y’all forgive a sister, please!

    1. I know! It’s a small world!
      Glad I could take you back a bit.
      Hope that everything is going well with you as you work on your book..
      I’ve been busy myself trying to catch up on a lot of things.
      By the way it’s good to feel 16 again–even if it is for a moment 🙂
      As always, it’s good to ‘see’ you!

        Hi Gwin
        Our eldest grandson is visiting this week so all writing and blogging schedules are running way behind, but I’m not complaining, there’ll be time enough

    1. Paula,
      Do you know that I thought you were referring to your stationary bike ‘ride.’

  2. What a Beautiful Balloon ride this is along with You.
    I experienced it as if I really was in it through the video.
    The song was also good to hear.
    I am afraid if this comment is going to post as I have this problem since past ten days.
    Do recommend me your posts which you want me to read I shall enjoy reading them.
