Go Fly a Kite!


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! 🙂 🙂
