I'm forty-six today, and Reno is celebrating my birthday, as it often does, with giant balloons. The Great Reno Balloon Race is one of the delights of living here. Gary and I usually have a splendid view of the balloons from our house, and I can see some right now from my study window. (The event doesn't officially start until tomorrow, but today's a warm-up.) When the wind's right, they come right over the house; the previous owner had some land in the backyard. We've never seen that, but I did wake up one year to a Darth-Vader-breathing noise and discover a balloon right outside our bedroom window.
