Goat Lady Balloon Ride

Friends and neighbors gathered Saturday afternoon at Goat Lady Dairy in Grays Chapel, south of Greensboro to watch as the original "Goat Lady", Ginnie Tate was surprised by her family with a first for her, a hot-air balloon ride. The group cheered as Ginnie took to the air. "Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas any more."

Below is Ginnie's ground crew.

Dan! What fabulous photos of Ginnie! I especially love the one of her in the basket and grinning like a possum. She looks absolutely thrilled and it does my heart good to see her like that!

I also kinda like the photo of the ground crew cause I was in it and since I am usually taking the pictures, it isn't often that I get to be in the shots, unless I set the timer and have my tripod, so that was a bonus. Thanks for being there!

Thank you, you are very kind. Ginnie is a very special lady. I believe she did enjoy the ride.
