She just celebrated her 69th birthday! Yep, she and the 5th Dimension were favorites of mine, too. Such a silky, beautiful voice - very smooth, like a fine cabernet...

and yes, I can tell your trip is getting closer

For the last few days I have been thinking about our Napa Valley experiences and there is a song that has been running through this little pea brain that sums it all up. I am sure you will recognize it as one of the huge hits of the "Fifth Dimension". Here it goes:

"Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
We could float among the stars together, you and I
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
The world's a nicer place in my beautiful balloon
It wears a nicer face in my beautiful balloon
We can sing a song and sail along the silver sky
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
Suspended under a twilight canopy
We'll search the clouds for a star to guide us
If by some chance you find yourself loving me
We'll find a cloud to hide us
We'll keep the moon beside us
Love is waiting there in my beautiful balloon
Way up in the air in my beautiful balloon
If you'll hold my hand we'll chase your dream across the sky
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon
Balloon...
Up, up, and away....."

I was always a fan (and maybe a little in love) with Marilyn McCoo of the Fifth Dimension. What a beautiful lady and great singer.

To make this legal . . . I have not taken the balloon ride in Napa, but I can imagine it as we have taken one elsewhere. Can you tell it is about time for us to leave for Napa? Just sayin'.
