Flight time August 18, 2010


I did do some kite flying between today and my last entry.  But there isn't much to tell about then– it involved experiments with a windsock that needs metal parts removed and plastic wind spinners that were too heavy for the kites I have.

Today, however, well, I'll let a small selection of pictures illustrate that.

I said "small" because this isn't all the pictures, by far.  As Cimmorene took most of them, I'll let her share– well, at best, I will edit in the link to the pictures at her Flickr account.

Not all the kites I bought today were flown, but most of them were.  I was bored and suspected Fred Meyer would be putting their kites on clearance as summer items.  SHAZAM!  Whattya know, yep, they were, at 50%– so each kite was about $5 US.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me- the username is still unique as of the current year. Be aware that the facet you see, is only a small part of the me that is me.

  1. Great buys! Way to catch a sale on an 'out of season' item when there is still plenty of 'season' left to play in.


  2. So much fun. The kids have to love being there and watching them soar!!


  3. " 50%– so each kite was about $5 US" now that is a good price.
