Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

My wife really got a kick out of that!
So much so, that she put it on her Pinterest page.

That's why I never built a kite without shaving my legs and painting my toenails first.

I keep my sewing dress hung up in my kite room so as to avoid wrinkles... it's currently hanging next to my #10 Moonie Mongoose.

That would make a great T-Shirt.  Not sure it would be a best seller, but the looks on the streets would be worth the admission price.   Cheesy

Question is which would draw more snickers and stares - the shaving and the toenails, or the thought of a grown man making a kite?

Ok I worked hard all day, was up until 2 in the kite shop doing some repairs and decided to check the forum while winding down for a good sleep and what do you guys do? Not sweet dreams after those pictures got stuck in my head ... LOL

Should you match the lipstick with the material you are sewing? Or in Ron G's case your toenail polish. Clashing colours will not make for the right frame of mind.
