There’s Something Spooky Going On Around Here!

DSC07707At the family birthday celebration last month, I was given a HAPPY BIRTHDAY balloon which I brought home and positioned to hover above my desk and computer.   And for the last month or so it has just been hanging in there and slowly wasting away to deflation.

EXCEPT FOR THIS MORNING! When I sat down at my desk, I looked up and noticed that it was gone. 

Then from the corner of my eye I noticed movement in the corner of the room.DSC08101

The balloon had moved over next to the window.

A little while later, I heard a noise behind me and I turned just in time to see the balloon slowly move out of the room.DSC08102

It’s next stop was in front of the bay windows in the dining room .DSC08103

A little bit later, it moved into the far corner of the room.DSC08100

Sometime later, I noticed that it had moved to the front corner of the living room.DSC08104

An hour later it had moved to the other corner of the room.DSC08110

That was about two hours ago.  Right now, I’m afraid to go see where it is now.

I just looked! It moved behind the love seat where I normally sit in the evening to watch TV or read.

I don’t think I’ll be sitting there this evening!

PLEASE NOTE: The occurences detailed in this post can be scientifically explained by atmospheric variations, air flow, human and animal movements through the house, temperature changes and the fact that the resident of the house ate a fully stuffed Chicago style hot dog with three kinds of hot peppers for lunch. He also drank a bottle of Belgian style hard cider while eating it. We’re quite sure that the fact that today is Halloween played no part in the illusions that the resident of the house claims to have witnessed.

Quoth the balloon, “Nevermore!”DSC08112

  1. Honestly, neither Mlle. Renee or myself is moving that damn balloon around the house. It’s moving under its own power.
