Everybody has heard this expression I do believe. If you haven’t it’s a kind of strange one, isn’t it? If you’re saying Oh go fly a kite to somebody it’s usually not said in kindness I’m afraid. It’s just dripping with sarcasm actually…Telling somebody to get lost is what you mean. I think the expression is not used much, but what do I know? It just popped into my head when I was reading about April being National Kite Month. So, there we have the title explanation! 🙂 It’s a fun thing and not being said to be unkind or nasty.
I am hoping everyone will have a happy time of it by going to fly a kite. I wonder how many of you kind readers think kite flying is fun, how many of you have flown kites? I was worrying it’s the kind of thing nobody takes the time to do anymore. I haven’t flown a kite for a few years myself, but reading about National Kite Month has given me an idea. It’s high time to go fly a kite! 🙂 I really intend to take some time and do just that myself.
Autumn and I both remember from an early age flying kites with our parents. We were blessed with a set of pretty awesome parents, our Dad used to make our own kites. They were some cool and unusual kites I do have to say! All the neighborhood kids loved seeing Dad bring those kites out, too. He sure could get those kites soaring and what wonderful memories of those days we Twinnies have.
I remember when Autumn and I were left to our own devices once…Well, the poor kite ended up tangled up in branches of our pear tree. We were young, Dad and Mom thought we should be given a chance to try. I remember Dad climbing a ladder to fetch that kite, he was happy to do it…We Twinnies were crying just a bit about our lost kite. Oh, the joys of two of us carrying on at one time! 😉 It was just as I said earlier we were blessed with awesome parents. Wonderful times, wonderful memories. I was also blessed with a fun husband who also liked to fly kites…Dave and I we had some good memories, too. Now, that he’s in Heaven, along with Dad all the memories are that much more meaningful.
The Twinnie and her darling man have decided to go kite flying, too she has told me, Yay! More memories and more fun…I have a feeling they will have a grand time of it, too. So, as my thoughts meander all over, I am just asking all of you kind readers to give it a whirl. Go fly a kite! 🙂 Everybody go fly a kite at some point this month and celebrate with some smiles! 🙂 🙂
I think we all need to go fly a kite 🙂 TF ❤
Yes we surely do Twinnie… the fun, happiness and joy of it all! 🙂 Flying a kite is something everyone should give a try! 🙂 TF ❤
I do it quite often myself.I have some photos on facebook flying my kite!!
That is so wonderful Lynn, I am happy you are flying your kite! 🙂 I’m not on Facebook, so I’m sorry I can’t see your photos. I am sure they are awesome! 🙂
Yes.I try to enjoy my self as much as I can up in the mountains,where the kite can fly much better.
You are so right Lynn, about the mountains being the best place to fly our kites! It makes me happy you are enjoying yourself, too! 🙂
lol I have never heard of this expression before..really in India people really do fly kite a lot and we have this festival of kites too, so here if i tell someone to fly a kite i think they will actually go and fly one 😆
OMG your Dad used to make his own kite..how cool is that…it must have been so much fun flying kite with your dad..what fun memories
i have tried my hands on it when i was kid but it just didnt take off…there is some trick these people do that it not only flies but for hours..
how beautiful they look making the sky colourful…
April is national kite month wow thats fun…..
Gabby April is food and kite what else can one want 🙂
hugs n love 🙂
This is a new expression for you…”Go fly a kite”! I don’t know why I thought it was maybe a world wide expression Soma. Festival of kites in India is so awesome, I just think that is the best! 🙂 I do think it was such a blessing that Dad made our kites and all the wonderful memories of kite flying with him, he was so patient Soma. Dad had the trick down pretty well for getting them flying, so did Dave…They could both have then flying so high and so well. I know, it’s a beautiful sight and so colorful flying in the sky, I am anxious to give it a whirl soon myself and am hoping for the best. I know Soma, both food and kites in April what a fun month! 🙂 Hugs and Love 🙂
I miss flying kites. I had to give it up when we moved to the jungle. We have the highest incidence of lightning strikes in the world. No one flies kites in the jungle.
That is sad about not being able to fly kites since your move to the jungle Marvin. After hearing about the lightning, it’s for the best. The next time you and your wife take a vacation, get a kite and fly safely! 🙂
I’ve always wanted to fly a kite!!!! 🙂
It’s never too late Nicole, get a kite and give it a try! 🙂
I’ll let you know if I do!! 🙂
Sounds good Nicole, let me know if you decide to! 🙂
You know I never heard that saying! I love hearing the stories of you and your sister growing up! So thank you for sharing this lovely post! God Bless 🙂
You never heard the saying “go fly a kite” either PJ…Here I thought everyone knew it, Oops well now I know differently! 🙂 I am so happy you enjoyed the post, Autumn and I sure had fun times growing up. Hope you are feeling better sweetie, it’s good to see you here! 🙂 Hugs and God Bless you, too! 🙂
Sounds like you truly enjoyed flying kites as you got older with your late husband, I hope to hear about Autumn and her love kite day! 🙂
Dave and I sure had fun flying kites, too and what a blessing he was the best kite flyer! 🙂 I am hoping we hear how Autumn and her darling man do when they have their kite day, too! 🙂
Wonderful post. The best part about flying kites is that it can be done almost anywhere. We, my son, myself, and my hubby. used to fly our kite after dinner at the top of our driveway. It a great destressor at the end of the day. 🙂
Thank you so much Elizabeth, for liking this post of mine and also for stopping by. 🙂 That sounds like a wonderful time of kite flying with your husband and son. It really is a destressor, I agree! 🙂 Gabby
