A lot of inspirational things were said during the actual flight attempts, but none more moving to the core than Chuck's dramatic reading of the kite-flying instructions, which were included with the kite, and which I have attached here:
Here we have Ashley getting acquainted with kite in the Current's stylish, worn-asphalt parking lot. (Note the lovely ruby-tinged trees behind her. Yes, those leaves were dancing.)
Next up: Ashley attempts to run ... eerrrr ... launch kite.
After several failed flight attempts, Chuck became entangled in kite's tail and string.
Chuck eventually worked himself free, just in time to assist expert-kite-flyer-in-residence (and altogether fun publisher) Chris Sexson.
When even Chris's glorious effort came to nothing, we got back to making the news ...
... until the next goodie-box arrives, anyway.
