Dang, this just goes to show I need to make sure to re-read posts after the first time I read them.

Congratulations John and Takako!

Congratulations John, I wish you both many (very many) happy and prosporus years. I am so happy for you both. Reading this made my day. Found this on the kite studio forum, thanks for posting there. Oh, and I am sure baby's first picture will have quad handles in it.

John and Takako

I forgot to mention that it has been 35 years for Lynn and me.

Lets see........we had been married 2 years when John was born.........Are we his parents?.......no,,,,,,don't think so.

Are we getting old?......doesn't feel like it.......probably looks like it though.

Anyway, it's great to hear your news.
Fly together! Share the joy, Share the fun

I could tell by the look on your face when you were telling me about Takako last May in Grand Haven that you'd found someone special. Congratulations and I hope you have as much fun as Sam and I have in the 24 years we've been together.

I'm thinkin you should make it happen at WSIKF 2009, we'd cap it off with a iQuad Century Plus Rev MegaFly.
I can see it now "WSIKF Best of Show 2009" iQuad Honeymoon/MegaFly :sign_kitelife:
Takako in her Kimono and John in Tux, yeah, that's da ticket! :ninja:

No TK at Berck next year, once a visa application goes through, that individual cannot leave the country for an average of 2-3 years pending "adjustment of status" to officially become a US citizen... Sorry!

Ah yes, I heard a similar story from someone transferring from Canadian to USA status.
