Those kites are very cool.  I had to look at them for a long time because the pictures do not look real.

Dear John,

Kites have come a long way from balsa wood and paper. These fancy kites are stunners for sure. Thanks for stopping by.

Betina,  I love to see those beautiful kites--and how high they go.  I would absolutely enjoy this and wish the weather here was nice enough for something like this.

Dear Carole,

Do they do anything like this in Central Park? It was pretty cold today, high only mid 40's. Yesterday it was 82 and sunny!?!?

I have entered several times and in several different categories and it's always a blast. I might even post about it this year and tell some old tales...
