Party Girl

There were 69 helium balloons at Saturday's retirement party for Mabel Watson Payne's Grandma. I know this fact because shortly before the party started Mabel and I touched and counted each hanging-down ribbon attached to each balloon that was floating up against the ceiling. Then toward the end of the party, the balloons ceased being decorations and became toys. Mabel rejoiced when that moment arrived.
