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".

I have now seen everything. I think.

Been seeing an older couple walk what I figured was their grandkid in a stroller for the last two or three years. The angle was such that I couldn't see the kid, but I had no reason to think otherwise. Today they are each pushing a stroller and I thought how sweet..... another baby. But then they stopped to make adjustments. Picked up first kid.... who turns out to be a dog!. I stared really hard at the second stroller and dang, if they don't have a cat in there.

Oh man.... just had to share.

Dogs and cats are easier to raise than kids.

There are videos of cats using the toilet.

Kits are available to train the cat.

It's supposed to take about 3 weeks.

Yeah, if you could only potty train kids in 3 weeks... they're supposed to be smarter than cats, but some kids take 3 years to train !  Huh

The litter box isn't really that bad at all.  There's a bit of a zen aspect to it if your of the right frame of mind. However, that might require several viewings of the dish washing scene from "The Razor's Edge."

On the whole a large black lab with diarrhea is several orders of magnitude worse.

I had a yellow Lab, Chow-chow, Keeshond, and seven cats all at the same time. We're down to 3 cats. Been there, done that.   Lips sealed

I'm sure it will start again when the kids get old enough to start bringing strays home...

Kite Flyer Mary Bos of Ocean Shores, WA trains her cats to use the toilet. In 1998 myself and another kite flyer stayed at her house during the AKA Convention that year. One morning I get up to use the bathroom, walk in, and low and behold the cat was squatting on the toilet seat doing it's business. I thought I was seeing things, or perhaps sleep walking, so I had to ask Mary if indeed her cat was actually using the toilet instead of using a litter box. Mary said it took 3-4 weeks to train her cat to use the toilet. Now, if cats could just learn to flush! Wink

Flushing for the cat, still beats cleaning out the litter box  Wink

I love my pets, but I hate when the people bring their pets into a restaurant and expect you to think of them as people too.

Using toilet paper instead of sand ain't bad ...

Does the pet have to leave a tip?  Cheesy
