Page 6 - MALAKOFF NEWS - February 20, 1975 tales from trinidad By Ann Rounsavall The balmy weather and gusting winds last week were perfect for kite. flying. Bobby and our four year old Chad took advantage of the season, a sunny afternoon, and a pirate kite. late one evening. I watched from a bedroom window {or a few moments before starting dinner. Motherly pride swept through me as I watched father and son, with the wind carrying the kite toward the clouds, and gently blowing that small head full of blonde hair on my son. It was a scene worthy of Norman Steak was the main dish for the evening, a family favorite and one that we find less and less on our dinner table as the recession progresses. It had been a bus.v day at the office for me, but the unusually warm, sunny weather pulled n'e from an afternoon Slump to a cheery frame of mind and I found myself humming as l prepared dinner. It was a lovely domestic scene. Dinner was well underway when t, Amy came in to tell me that Bobby was visiting down the street and Chad needed help with the kite. I saw the kite as I opened the door and it was barely within eyesight. Chad was thrilled...but tired. He had been unwinding string for quite awhile. The ball of twine grew slowly as I wound and wound. Gusts of wind pulled the kite higher as I pulled to get it to the ground. I marveled that Chad had been able to hold on. It was nearly dark as the kite touched the ground and a group of neighborhood children cheered my efforts. We had collected quite an audience, I found as I turned around. '" The steak was burned, the potatoes were dry, and the salad had wilted when I made it back into the house. Bobby came through the door soon after, sniffed, and said "something burned". I thought about explaining, then said simply, "that kite was a good 1,000 feet high." Speoial '1 & '2. /2 Price Reg. to !,o-,,., .o ,lo.I Special Rack Thur. Junior Fri..Sat.
