Did that kite come with a poop package so you can drop little presents on peoples heads?  ;D  Will you be posting the winners of the contest this year? Next year you do need the large UFO kite that beams up a small cow kite.  8)


There is no contest D.

It's just a festival.  8)


Unless I hit the lottery, the large UFO kite with the alien on top beaming up the cow is out of my price range for now.


However this combination might be doable -

That gull of Yours looks almost alive.  [smile]  Were You the only gull in the flock?

Looking forward to see what You can afford next year and so glad You had a good time!

Thanks Amy.  ;D

Yup I was the only one. It would sometimes hover and sometimes sway back and forth.

I got several comments saying it took a minute to determine if it was a kite or not.   8)

51, since Zorgon is of the Red Dragon and mine is purplish, I think both of those would work  8)

just need a Peggy logo on each one...

I think a model of that one would require independent thrusters to get off the ground.  ;)  ;D

Yep I showed my girls the video. They loved it. My 8yr old really loved the arobatic kites.I had to go to the city Saturday morning to get lawn mower parts. I stoped at the hobby shop to get a new kite. They were pretty much sold out :( But I did pick up a nice box kite. Our luck no wind to fly it.

I will be looking on line for kites.

Bless

A51, on the big balloon Dragon kites. Is there another kite above them to help? To keep the head up or to move it around?

or in a van down by the river????  lol

sorry...couldn't help myself...

Cosmo

I'm not black. I do have googly eyes though.
I wish I could afford a van, but that's probably because I'm not as good a motivational speaker as Mr Foley.
(As we all know! :)
Gold for making me laugh cosmo!
Gold for making such a beautiiful kite A51.
