My Beloved Baci
I have not held your tiny paw in mine.
I have the memories to last a lifetime tho. I hold them close instead.
I thought I would share one of our adventures from our Honeymoon in Ireland this past March.
You know I love adventure, it is the redhead thing, mol, and you told me you would go hot air ballooning with me if we could find one that would take us to Newgrange, a Stone Age Passage Tomb built about 3200 BC we saw on the telly one night.
We drove around till we saw a sign for hot air balloon rides.
Up the winding drive we went. Parked, got out and walked some more, came around a bend and there it was. A hot air balloon!
I will never forget the look on your sweet face!
The signage read
" Mangey Mykonos' Flights of Fancy"
I was not sure if it was the name or the fact the balloon was black with a giant Jolly Roger on the side.
You grabbed my arm and said, " Redd my hunk o mancat, I swear if the pilot has an eye patch, missing a limb or has a parrot, we are OUT of here."
About that time the pilot came out of his little cottage. A big grey Tom.
Ah I say to my wife, he has both eyes, see, all his original limbs and no bird. Just a few scars.
Baci can kick hard for a little thing..mol..
He came over and said in his gravelly voice ' Names Mangey Mykonos, but you can call me Mick. What can I do fer you, a ride? Newlyweds too. Good. Climb on board and let me get er ready."
We climbed in that basket, held each other close. Mick puttered around muttering and getting the ropes and bags ready, lit the fire, jumped out to make an adjustment, when the wind caught us and up we went!
I looked over the side and Mick was waving his arms and yelling something but balloon was going, the fire was lit and I told you, hey, why not?
You grabbed on and said Yes, lets go Redd.
So we flew our flight of fancy for an hour. Managed to come down in one piece just a mile or so from the site we wanted to visit. Mangey Mykonos caught up with us.
He was a good sport, took the tour with us, told us a few tales of his own, then before the sun set, flew us back.
I think he deserved that case of Single Malt.
I love you Baci.
