It was either an octopus on a stick or...

finding someone willing to stand in the train station holding a red balloon.

Fortunately, I have just such a willing boon companion





Are you wondering WHY we'd need this attention grabbing image at Penn Station? (Many people did!)

When a group of people need to meet in a crowded place, it's either an octopus on a stick OR a big ol' red balloon and Barbara Poelle to hold it high!

So, the poor octopus was placed on standby--right? Anyway--

Good choice. I've never been fond of eight-legged sea creatures. Especially in the subway.

Where's the octopus?
If I ever wander through Penn Station and see an octopus I'll know you are around somewhere...
Hey, if we send an octopus with our query do we get moved to the front of the "read" line?

Oh gosh, now I can't get "Ballon! Ballon!" and the pitter patter of the little French boy running all over Paris out of my head. Will someone tell him his ballon rouge is in Penn Station s'il vous plait?
