Just needs another 5 balloons and he will achieve lift-off...his heels are coming up, already!
Chris: Could be dangerous in a sudden gust of wind
Gosh - you were in the right spot at the right time - a million balloons and snacking school girls.... happy day!
Chris: This is the result of hanging around waiting for something to happen Elizabeth..

What a great scene here. I would not mind a 'Stuart' balloon... I love the Minions... my kind of humour...
Often Hollandsire is called a Banana Republic...but that is another topic....
Chris: Notice Banana Republic is located in Cheap Street Astrid
Il est bien caché derrière cet énorme bouquet de ballons.
Chris: A summer street scene here in Bath Martine
Ohhh, which one do I want...which one...lemme see...which one...which one!!!
Chris: Have 'em all Ginnie!

Ilove the little girls indulging in eating their lunch - the phrase 'Banana Republic' has a pejorative meaning in German.
Chris: I did not know that Philine: thank you
This is rather good Tiff, a different sort of perspective. I like the vast array of balloons which we do not know how far extends. The children look slightly more interested in their food.
Chris: They would Chad, balloons are un-cool to females of this age

It least they don't appear to eating from that fine chain of Scottish restaurants. That chap seems to have enough balloons that hopefully he may fly off somewhere. I'd sneak up on the other side of the balloons and pop a few before running off.
Chris: Which only goes to show that underneath it all you are still a very NAUGHTY BOY!
You would think he could fly...
Chris: A bit more wind and he would do just that thing Larry..

"Bananenrepublik ist die abwertende Bezeichnung für Staaten, in denen Korruption und Bestechlichkeit vorherrschen, deren Rechtssystem nicht funktioniert, deren wirtschaftliche oder politisch-moralische Verhältnisse von Ineffizienz und Instabilität geprägt sind oder in denen staatliche Willkür herrscht oder denen diese Eigenschaften zugeschrieben werden."
Chris: We use the same term in English Philine
These girls seem to be enjoying their lunch more than the balloons. If the fellow selling them was dressed a bit differently....
Chris: Balloons are un-cool Mary
I wonder if you gave the girls at least one balloon?
Chris: If I did that I'd be arrested Jacquelyn
They look like they are waiting for take off, Chris...smile Good catch.
Chris: One little gust and..

This morning before leaving the house, the young man calculated at £2 profit per balloon. I hope he sold some.
Chris: I hope so too Louis
Lunch is so much more exciting at their age than a balloon.
Chris: I think you are right Brian
This is two pictures Chris
Chris: Then you'd best pay me two compliments..
the post made it look like a collage Chris... the girls having lunch is precious...
i'm surprised that the helium balloons don't carry him away....petersmile
Chris: Just another moment on Bath's busy streets Peter
