A Puff Of Air



“There's so much pollution in the air now that if it weren't for our lungs there'd be no place to put it all.”
 ~Robert Orben 

Know what these are? Well,  I knew they are big balloon type men that jump around because of an air compressor. They are put in front of businesses as an aye catching advertisement. But I found out their name is Air Dancers. Ella always loves seeing these, and asks us to turn around and go back for another look. She calls them Jack-In-The -Boxes. Just a puff of air makes her laugh and laugh.


“I wonder why you care, God— why do you bother with us at all? All we are is a puff of air; we’re like shadows in a campfire.”
Psalm 144

I have a winner in my purse contest!!! Here is the basket where I put all your names, then turned away and picked one. And here is the name: S. Etole. My friend Susan at Just A Moment always has beautiful images with thoughtful comments to match. Susan, congratulations!!! Please give me your address within two days.

I love these photos! Ginny, I hate to admit it, but I'm so off my stride that I missed Ground Hog Day :-). Hopefully things will settle down soon. I hope your week is off to a good start. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Congratulations to the winner and hello Ginny.

I have crossed your path many times in comment sections but never tracked you down. I am here visiting now via your interview with Ann.

I am so glad too because you are going right on my blog roll.

I always wonder how God manages to keep on keeping on with all of us. Wow, to even begin to imagine His level of patience, love and tolerance is beyond anything I can do!

I am so glad He can and He does!

Happy day!

I haven't seen one of those since I left VA although I'm sure they are in places closer to the cities. Out here, there is woods and water, trees and rivers, pines and lakes, ponds and narrow, windy, hilly roads...I love it!...:)JP

Annie said...

Aren't these balloon just the funniest things? I get mesmerized by them.

SweetMarie said...

Congrats to Susan! I haven't noticed any of those Air Dancers around here. We do have a lot of people standing on corners and spinning signs. I don't like it because it's so distracting to drivers.
Hope you're having a great week!

George said...

These air dancers are pretty popular in our neck of the woods as well.

Connie said...
