Oh! Just caught your new avatar Jynx! :D

Is that a Jonesey special? Looks like it!

No it's a Ross Special, my son, also know as Rooster the computer geek!

Jynx,

Instead of having someone do it for you, how about I teach you how to shorten/equalize your lines

Hey if anyone else wants to learn I could run a clinic, 25 cents each, limit class size to 100 = $25.00


If you had made it 25c a line..... But that is probably why you don't live next to Bill Gates ;)

@ David Ellison - don't worry sir I'll behave and I won't eat in the street and I won't chew gum and I cleaned behind my ears this morning and mum spat on a hanky and just did my face too.

I especially like the cautious look round the corner to make sure it is safe bit.

Comes with the territory!

And...
If there are any of you out there who are wondering WHY, especially in these economic times, so many IKEr's would travel clear across the US for a mere couple of days at the Kite Party...

Other than the obvious and obsessive love of flying...

I'll try to explain... a photo is worth 1000 words...

Interestingly I was out for a fly with jonesey yesterday - fair dinkum weather. Beautifully sunny but quite cold. Mr J had sworn me not to mention the trip, which was fair enough. Mind you he seemed to get upset that my iPod was only playing the Beach Boys, and he doesn't seem to like the Mamas and the Papas (all the trees are brown, and the skys are grey, california dreaming....)

During one of our crummy, cold, winter stormy days... I sarcastically asked a store clerk... "Why in the hell would anyone live here?" She gave me the best explanation I've ever heard.... "Someone has to!"

That's me! I'm that someone! But I don't have to like it! You're the smart one here. Maybe I should start thinking of a warm move! A warm Breezy move!

Thanks for the hug, Mousieo, I needed that!

You all are making me jelous, especially the webcams .... outside this weekend it was 10 degs and blowing about 30mph. I wonder why I ever left Tucson for the middle states?

I hope you all enjoy your beautiful warm weather and a week of kite flying .... can you hear the venom in my typing as I sit here at work dreaming of warmer weather and kite flying? Uuugh. Just to add insult the conversation going on over the cube wall is about ice fishing.

The "going west" road trip is just about over. We're in Barstow, California tonight ... the wife is shopping and I'm stealing bandwidth outside one of the mall stores. The windows are down, the wind is gentle and the temps today were in the 70's. This is going to be great!!!! Will be there tomorrow around noon.

As for DB, don't listen to his crying ... you do remember that he was in Mexico just a short time ago?

Cheers,
Tom

Tom,

Glad your trip is going well, I arrived today around 1:00pm, wind 14mph coming off shore. It did go up and down for a while then got nice and steady till sunset. Met up with Jim and Lynn, and then Jynx joined us. Weather looks to be great. We'll see ya on the beach tomorrow
