adrenaline RUSH

The wife is on the road for the day and I needed to do some errands out there
(TAR-JAY! Tabasco, btw, was on sale, Starschmucks bags too)
and rain was expected, according to the radio, at 9am. With horrendous winds warning until midnight. I was like
"saddle up the kites before it rains!" and so on my way to Tar-JAY I stopped at the park, dogless for a change, and pulled out first the shark kite, then the fish kite. Holy cats, flying kites is the biggest rush. I told the wife after Megan invited us cliff climbing
"they will need somebody at the bottom, guarding the cooler---that would be me"
because I do NOT do that kind of adventure. I don't do any kind of adventure actually, but flying kites is MY KIND of wild outing. The winds were superb, and just before 9 I was cold and packed up and was leaving, and here came the MONSOONS...perfect timing....

Wow at first glance thought it was a UFO you were pointing at. Glad to see you are having a great time! Makes us smile a the kites!
We were stuck with high winds, rain, you said, "We get all of it before you, and we do"! Done here and glad it's gone....whoooooooosh! :)

I agree with you 100% Gary - I too am a cooler guard. Anywhere that my fall will be less than my own height is perfect for me - the bonus is that we will be closer to the beverages.

Wow, what a storm we had here! Total deluge. I wanted to get out and take pictures but the lightning was a bit scary.

Kite flying... that fits right in with our idea of fun. :)
