Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

I (Tony the Balloon Guy) just heard from my mom that my niece, Jessika (I don’t know why the ‘K’), who plays in some sort of flag football league, will be traveling to Sweden to play flag football, paid for by the NFL (National Football League).

Who knew such things are possible? I love this planet.

Hurray for Jessika!

Sunday, August 21st, 2011

Yesterday, toward the end of a magic-show-and-balloon-entertainment birthday party (yes, I do magic shows!), one of the guest’s moms got me (Tony the Balloon Guy) aside to say, “I have two daughters, so I have been to A LOT of balloon parties around here. But I have never seen ANYONE do what you do!”

Thanks, Mom!!!

A Gifted Man (Tony the Balloon Guy, a Tampa Bay area – St. Petersburg-Largo-Pinellas Park-Tampa – balloon artist/balloon twister, starts the day where actor Patrick Wilson started his career)

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

I (Tony the Balloon Guy) left my first job (a St. Petersburg, Florida, balloon party) Saturday morning, and bought a St. Petersburg Times at a RaceTrac gas station, to read while waiting for Face Painter Phyllis and our pony party helpers (and Gator the pony) to meet me for a birthday party on Gandy Blvd.

I opened to page 2B, and a headline caught my eye because it had the word “Shorecrest” in it. Sure enough, it referred to Shorecrest Preparatory School, where Actor Patrick Wilson “first learned the power of acting across many different platforms, joining a cadre of young thespians who pushed the school to expand its acting activities and compete with other institutions.”

Why was that interesting to me?

First, it’s fun to follow Wilson’s career, since he’s from here in the Tampa Bay area, and his dad, John Wilson, is a well-know news anchor at WTVT-Channel 13 (Fox), which, incidentally, is the station that had me live with Charley Belcher on the morning news on the Fourth of July this year.

Second, I had just come from Shorecrest Preparatory School – that’s where I had been doing balloon entertainment for an hour and a half.

Shorecrest Preparatory School is also where I had just been pronounced, yet again, “The Best Balloon Artist We Have Ever Seen.” Yay!

“Thank you for sharing your talent with the Shorecrest Preparatory School kids! You made their day special!”
-Helen Stein, via Facebook

The Shorecrest kids and families were really sweet, and I had a great time there.

So far, my time at Shorecrest Preparatory School has not been the beginning of a movie-and-television career, as it was for Patrick Wilson. But it was the beginning of  a Saturday of doing balloons at four parties, three of which also featured Face Painter Phyllis, and one of which, of course, featured Gator the pony.

Oops – time to start getting ready for more birthday fun today! Gotta run!

Have a fun day!

Nobody Else (Tony the Balloon Guy, a Tampa Bay area – Lakeland-Homosassa-Clearwater-Clermont – balloon artist/balloon twister for special event and birthday party entertainment, and Face Painter Phyllis, secure future repeat business)

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

After we finished a decor job for a grand opening on Friday, Face Painter Phyllis and I (Tony the Balloon Guy) did four hours of balloon antics and face painting at a Father’s Day event at the David A. Straz, Jr., Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa (Hillsborough County, Florida).

The director of the agency that hired us found me toward the end of the event, introduced herself, and told me that, although they had used a lot of different balloon artists in the past, they wouldn’t be using any others in the future – they had found their man!

Love it!

Have a fun day!
