This week’s title is a nod to the song Kites Are Fun by The Free Design (1967) – one of my all-time favorites! If you don’t know it, check it out! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epZOKYrVAn0)

Fun Fact: As a kid I saved up a bunch of Kool-Aid points and sent away for a big Kool-Aid Man kite. Oh Yeah!
Side Note to the Fun Fact: I also sent away for the Kool-Aid Man Intellivision video game. Boy did this video bring back memories, especially the sounds! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBqyjl1gkVw When I wasn’t playing that as a young child in the early 1980s I was most likely playing Las Vegas Poker and Blackjack (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcbbsZfTayQ) or (quite possibly the greatest video game ever made) BurgerTime!

Me, 60 minutes later, post-first-voyage. The light doesn’t do justice to the redness of my face, but I feel my eyes give voice to my muscles as they scream, “we haven’t pushed a mower up that hill in a decade!” I mowed this lawn for 20-some years, then I let other people do it for me. I decided mowing the lawn myself with a non-propelled push mower would be a good workout. Let’s just say I was correct. Also, hey! I have allergies!! (Update: Three days later and my shoulders are still complaining.)
