I was hiding under your porch because I love you


Leave it to NatGeo.  They used 300 helium balloons and recreated the house in Disney's Up.  It worked and soared for an hour!

I found the one flaw in their design: they didn't account for the weight of a pudgy Wilderness Explorer, a talking dog and a cranky old man.  Next time.

(You've seen Up, right?  If not, you must.  It is so sweet.)

Happy Weekend!
