A work of balloon art named in my honor

When I was in Party Connection and saw this balloon art,  I told Melonie, the owner and creator of this work, that I had a soft spot in my heart for tennis.

In a former life (before age 35), I spent a large percentage of my time on the tennis court, playing and teaching.

She named it Sammy, in my honor, and emailed me a picture.

Balloon Boy Limerick

There was a strange family named Heene
Whose son was nowhere to be seenie.
All afternoon
He wasn’t in a balloon
But was hiding from Daddy — a meanie.
