One of my Facebook friends posted a picture of his grandchildren flying kites. It brought back a great memory of standing in the cow pasture on a windy spring day with my dad and my brother flying kites. That memory led to reading about kites on the internet, which led to the 1888 book What to Do and How to Do It, which has a great section on making kites, which led to finding very interesting images about kites on Ebay (I bought the one above) which led me to realizing that 19th Century Kite Winders are now a collectible. Which gave me an idea for a decorating theme for my living room. Phew, see how my brain works???
When's the last time you flew a kite? Do kids even know about kites today? ~ Dixie Redmond
