Ron, made a giant balloon pig that was one of the surprises I gave my wife on our 31st wedding anniversary. She likes pigs. When I turned the corner with it, you should have seen the look on her face. Complete puzzlement with complete joy! It is standing in our living room now. Ron says they last about as long as flowers. Ron was super kind enough to remind me and bring it to me at my place of employment. Excellent gift for anyone!
