Mary de­boon of Le­duc, Alta., writes, “For my 65th birth­day, my fam­ily sur­prised me with tick­ets for a hot air bal­loon ride. So on a balmy sum­mer morn­ing, I found my­self, with three other peo­ple, in a bas­ket skim­ming the tree­tops be­fore fi­nally float­ing over Ed­mon­ton. I have never ex­pe­ri­enced such quiet. We then headed to­wards Beau­mont, where we de­scended to a field, send­ing a herd of cat­tle run­ning! Af­ter we got back, we were all pre­sented with cer­tifi­cates. My fam­ily fi­nally got their wish of send­ing me into or­bit!”
