Three tigers sailing around in a hot air balloon and how this idea came about.

How Did They Get There?

Three tigers and a hot air balloon? What a crazy idea and just how on (or above) earth did they get there? Well believe it or not it all started around the year 1976.

Three Tigers Sailing Around The World

Around the summer of 1976 I was just eight years of age, my mother worked three or four jobs just to make ends meet and one of these jobs was at a drive in theater. One night while working a man and his wife asked my mom if she would like to see their tigers. She didn't believe them but to her amazement and mine they had three Bengal tigers, two cubs and a six month old female! It turns out that the tigers were rescued animals and we even got to spend a weekend with these tigers! They also came to my school! Boy was I the big man on campus that day!

One of my greatest memories and it also inspired this poem that appears in my book, "An Elephant Is On My House And Other Poems By O. D. D. Cummings".
