Birthday Balloons

Recently, when we last got together to honor the memory of Debbie Key, we had a balloon release. Now her birthday is coming up, on Sept. 21. In deciding how to commemorate this occasion, I thought some more balloons might be in order.

For those of us who do not speak German;
The German word for "balloon" is "Luftballoon," which means "air balloon," but it is one word. The word "red" was added when translated into English so as to give it the same number of syllables. In the original German recording, there is no reference to the color of the balloons.

Debbie's taste in music was widely varied. She liked rock, country, folk, and classical. I'm sure she would approve. Happy Birthday, Debbie, wherever you are...
