Parades

I have been in a few parades this fall. We were in the Light Up Louisville parade and won a trophy in the automotive unit. One of the bubblettes accepted the award as I had left the scene. The parade was sponsored by Wendys and the trophy had a Wendys cup on it so much fun.

Friday December 5, I drove to New Castle Kentucky to do a parade. The weather was not so fun but I did have fun. It was a small parade in a cute town. During the staging of the parade I put out containers of bubble solution and let the kids play. The temp was 27 degrees a few of my bubble makers froze. Some bubbles would hit the ground a freeze it was fun to watch. You could pop the frozen bubbles just like breaking egg shells.

Always be a kid at heart.

Kids

I had the great fun of making bubbles for a daycare center in Louisville. I was also asked to read my book. When I pulled into the daycare there were kids in the play area. They are always so fun. The kids stood at the fence asking questions and trying to climb it to get to the bubbles and to touch the truck. What a great time in life to be that curious and trouble free. They have so much thirst for knowledge and fun. We all must remember to have fun.
Making bubbles with them and showing them how to use the string wands is always great. Most of the four year old kids do catch on and make bubbles bigger than they have sever seen. There are always the usual areas of putting hands in the solution and not using the wands just playing in the water. I like to get the adults to play with the bubbles and it always works. We are all kids but a lot of us have been pressured to act certain ways. Bubbles are for everyone. You should always enjoy the simple things in life.
On to my book I am selling some copies but we always want to sell more. I am always looking for the answer. Please pass my book along to everyone you meet.
Thanks
Sonny

Festival fun

I made bubbles for a small community called Indian Hills. It was a great festival very well organized and everyone was very pleasant. The kids were having fun making big bubbles e with the string wands. I was able to make big bubbles early but as the solution changed the bubbles were not easy to make.
The day before I had a person offer to buy my truck. He had the money but it was somewhat of an insult. I was parked near the St. James art show and selling my books the truck was visible to the crowd. A lot of people stopped and took pictures of my truck. This caught the attention of the guy and I guess he had to work it into his world. I did not sell.
Keep smiling and always bubble with friends.

Harvest Homecoming Parade

I was in a parade yesterday. I always thought parades were fun but four years ago I started doing parades in my bubble truck with a group of ladies I call the bubblettes. They are fun. Of course bubbles are always a big hit with the crowd, kids wanting to pop them and parents pointing them out to their kids and remembering they love them too.
My entry is the only one that the people walk out in the street to touch. It is quite funny but the power of bubbbles is a very strong attraction.

Bubbles in a clear sky. Have fun
Posted by Picasa

Beautiful day


We are always in a hurry. I think we have gotten away from the good ole simple life.. My purpose is to help the kids I meet to have fun. I want each child to walk away thinking that was fun or to say "I want to do that when I grow up".
My art and bubble performing is some thing simple but it has a magic aire about it. Kids enjoy the bubbles for many reasons but they all enjoy it.
Make more bubbles with your kids, give the, more quality time.

Bubble happiness

When I drive into a daycare or a school sometimes I get treated like a rock star. The kids will stand and yell bubble truck bubble truck. What makes bubbles so fun. To me it is the color and movement of the bubbles. Some tell me it is the magic with which they appear and disappear when you pop them. For the kids who knows they like them but they have the most fun chasing them and popping them. I make bubbles over 30 feet long the kids really enjoy popping them, I would like for them to watch the bubble fly away but the temptation to pop them is great I am there for their fun so letting them pop the big bubbles is the way to go. With a little help the kids can make bubbles over 20 feet long. Most kids are amazed at the size of the bubbles.
Kids enjoy the bubble truck. They like the craziness of the design and the surprises they find. I have horns for them to make noise with and other items that get their attention.
The bubble truck is a rolling party.

Rainy day

It is raining today so I cannot make bubbles. I guess I could but not many people would stop and visit. The rain adds humidity to the air and it adds life to the bubbles. I will probably make bubbles after the rain.
I am working on my book and adding a new item to my ebay listing about the names in my book

Sunday and Bubbles

I made bubbles today at a walmart, I was testing out a new bubble maker. The area was wet and windy a lot of the bubbles that hit the pavemnet stuck so there was a new landscape scene. It was very windy and the machines were puting out a lot of bubbles. From a distance it looked like it was snowing.
Bubbles are an universal language crossing all barriers. I talk to aalot of people and answer their question I am pleased at teh number of people who ask question.I really enjoy talking to peoplpe over 20 they ask how and why and suggest new ways to add more machines to my truck and to make it a full time gig.
I love art and bubbles.

podcasting bubbletruck stories

I am podcasting bubble truck stories. Please search for them or go to my website to follow the link. If you have kids please pass on the link. I will be adding stories weekly. If you have any ideas please pass them on also.
I am adding more youtube video's, my skills are limited but I am going forward none the less. I will be adding as I make more bubbles and go to more events.
You can make bubbles in the winter as long as your bubble solution does not freeze. It is funny how we get trained ,as a kid most of us drew pictures and our parents put them on the fridge as we grow older we tend to stop drawing pictures and putting them on the fridge. I say stand up for your creativity. Put a picture on your fridge , a recently finished piece. So go make bubbles in the winter just dress warm and go inside when you get too cold.
Bubble on!
