The $1 Kite

The dollar kite danced in the breeze
and its tail was the ribbon that decorated the clouds
Until a mocking gust of Pacific Ocean wind
snatched the reel from her fingers as it passed
and drew designs in the sand
with the trailing line.


"Daddy--- please catch it."
Buttercup cried.
And he did.

What a wonderful, magical photo!
Daddies are the best...it did not take Grace long to figure out that Bill would do all he could to help her if something went wrong. I always felt that my Dad could do anything...
He was my hero!

Hugs dear Pam,
Sue
