Somewhere Over Colorado


In the WIZARD OF OZ Dorothy returns to Kansas via the wizard’s balloon. Billions of people have seen the movie, yet few know her last name was Gale. The same went for a young boy in Colorado who was feared to have been airborne in a high-flying balloon launched by his father. The police scrambled their amber alert forces to rescue to 6-year-old, as the UFOesque balloon designated 3DLAV rose to 1000s of feet over the high plains. The missing whippersnapper was later discovered in his garage to the relief of his parents.

The family had survived a previous brush with fame through their appearance on the reality TV show WIFE SWAP. The title is self-explanatory and some reporters suspect a hoax by the father.

And then some even get a second shot at it.

15 plus 15.

Almost a half-minute.

Certainly more than me.

ps the balloon family’s name is Heene.
