Kite flying is an art

      1. No way I’d try anything like that these days, but I’d love to take a shot at flying a modern kite at a local park. Come to think of it, I haven’t seen anyone flying a kite since I left Oklahoma City.

      2. Hmm, you’d think there would be kite there – great outdoor places ( you could stake one while eating a picnic lunch) and wind currents to make it fun?
        No kite shops? Hmmmm tourist areas…entertainment for kids….might have to look into that…kites are works of art now…(and somehow I’m determined to get up there. HA!)

      3. I’m sure there are kites to be had here, probably some great ones at some fascinating little kite shops. There are so many outdoor activities here that kites are probably pretty low on everyone’s list. Makes me wonder if my son has ever taken the grandkids kite flying. I’ll have to suggest that. Of course, he probably knows nothing about it because I never did that with him.

        As for your getting up here, fear not. The mountains aren’t going anywhere, and they are very, very patient.

    1. I hadn’t thought about that. You’d think their initial reaction might be to avoid the “predator.” Or maybe they are so used to trash, kites, leaves, etc., in their airspace that they just avoid them and carry on.

      1. Sharon took my comment at the end — “Mesmerizing.” I’m so glad they voted him through, at least for this round. I watch the show occasionally and it can be wonderful at times. Other times, not so much. Thanks for the video or I’d have had a totally wrong idea about indoor kite flying.

... and that's my two cents
