    • I am aware they are respected. I was polite and respectful to them, even after.  Any reasoning about why this happened is speculation, such as; maybe they felt enabled to do that because of their position in the industry. Whatever the reason I don't have to deal with it.   I am aware, and I wasn't blaming them for the Widow NG quality control either. For not manufacturing it they were defensive about the suggestion that there might be defects with mine. Premier said to return the Widow Ng to them, and either get a hand inspected replacement from them or contact John for one since they might have one on hand, and it might be faster since Premier would take an extra week to get it to their office from the warehouse. So I contacted Kites and Fun Things about it. Called and talked to Marieanne on the phone to see if they had one, and would look it over for me, and what they thought about it. Before I even finished explaining the situation on the phone she had the position that the kite was perfect, and I was wrong sight unseen. But she wanted to see pictures. I knew that was a waste of time due to the backfire effect, where someone has a preconceived idea, and no evidence will convince them otherwise, they only dig in deeper and defend their belief more. But I did email pictures. The logic was strange to me though. There are no defects, but I should tolerate defects because of how inexpensive the kite is, and how much just the frame was worth.      
    • Had a little fun with catch and throw on my classic yesterday. It's a good way to keep warm      
    • Oh no! Next time! I'd gladly take a knee and shake your hand, we're all just folks doing our thing - kites are mine, and I welcome any new friends. Glad to hear it sounds like you got a really good experience at AKA though, it was a great event weather aside!
    • It made me smile

    • Well, well, well...I had that ground shaking experience of seeing John at the indoor flying competition, and just could not get the nerve up to speak with him, then or all the other times I kinda ran into him...meeting Joel Scholz was nerve racking enough, but then Robert Brasington, and all the others I knew from the years I read about them all...<sigh> Sorry John just way too intimidated by you...lol All I can say is I hate rain...memorial day weekend, Washington DC, rain, stopped by Ocean City, MD, was a beautiful sunny day, arrived at my holtel in time for the rain, two days of rain, so foggy when I left, and after reaching Lewes, DE, the sun came out the wind picked up, and another lovely day to get lost going home...lol Oh yeah, hate my gps too, never gets me where I’m going, I always recognize someplace after it sends me all over the place, and I take it from there, and go my way, while it’s telling me to turn....damn, sorry, rambling....
