Thats the best News I've heard in a long time, I'm glad you got some if not all your kites back Amy and hopefully they caught the bastards and punish them to the fullest extent.

Seems it was a rather large bust with all that storage needed its a shame we can't all donate a SLE rod to have them whipped with.

My sons and I are hoping all are intact and Merry Christmas seems someone upstairs likes mice :kid_smartass:

As I said on Kitelife, so pleased for you.

I understand Theresas worries, hopefully if there is any damage it will just be to spars. As they were in a bag hopefully all will be OK.

Remember Amy, breath in, breath out.

Hope all is well.

Regards and hugs, Chris.

I like the way your thinking Jay. Hopefully they kept them in good condition. I am digging out my list now, there were so many things I cannot even remember all of them.

Amy, if you get Scarlette back and you are going to Treasure Island let me know. I might have to make that a "must attend". With Scarlette of course!

HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

ok here is the news.... .


The kites had been gone through and are in wrong bags...

but I am truly truly HAPPY to tell you that ALLLLLL the kites are there except one, and ALL the kites are in good condition. Now i have to go through them yet.. to make certain but it will take me a bit to do that.

The V.I.P Lam Hoac indoor is the one kite I am sorry to say is not there.... but it may turn up... The police know it's still gone..

The guy in charge of this ring is in jail and will be going to trial.. There were people there picking up refrigerators and table saws.. and computers and and and...
we spoke to one woman that was about to move into her brand new home.. and they took everything.. all the appliances.. everything down to the light fixtures... She recovered a few things, but we are pretty sure that a lot of her things were sold. I feel for her. We were lucky.

Connor has been quiet since last night... not really talking about it. When he got out of the car.. and walked over and saw the rev bag... he shouted **** that's our STUFFFFFF****

And when we opened the bag, and he saw the kite that Benny had gotten for him, he grabbed it and pulled it out.. and was sooo happy to see it.. *made some of us teary eyed***.
still is.
we are both still in disbelief.. Connor just said.. oh my gosh... I cannot believe it. I know exactly how he feels... it just seems to good to be true..

Amy,
The web site has been updated with only the VIP with photo being listed as missing!

Yesterday in Germany(at least in Bavaria) was "Nikolaustag" meaning Nickolas Day. That is the day the Nikolas comes to see the children. The children usually have to recite something such as a poem or sing a song to the Nikolas. Then the parents are asked if the children were good all year. If the parents say no, the Nikolas gives the parents a bundle of switches. If the parents say yes, the Nikolas gives the gives the children a present.
The Nikolas is also called the "Weihnachtsmann". In English you could say this is the Christmas man, though you would not call him Santa Claus. As such, they don't know Santa Claus in Germany. It is the "christkind" meaning christ child that puts up the Christmas tree and brings the presents on Christmas eve.
For you, the Nikolas must have received a good report, yesterday.

Great news. As I have said many times, "Sometimes we get lucky."
Sounds like it was not luck, but the skill and hard work of the Bend P.D.
Must be a bunch of good people. I can't imagine we would have had that kind of good work here in Southern California.

Speaking of Southern California, is there any chance you will bring your kites to Kite Party in Huntington Beach and show them off? There will be many here from the mid-west, and others, who don't get to see you and your kites.

Wonderful news, happy holidays indeed. ;)

Let's hope the VIP is being flown by a robber who left the gang due to a change of heart, and is now training to be a professional kite flier. <grin>

:ph34r: I'm still trying to catch up on all the forums, so this is the first chance I've had to read this one. That is one incredible story the way everyone chipped in to help you find your kites and the fact that they were even recovered is amazing. Congratuations on getting your stuff back and keep-on-flying.
