A sunny, windy Canada Day. We went out for lunch, and bought a kite at Crappy Tire (8 bucks). Got it home and opened the box to find that it contained a repackaged broken kite, probably returned to the store for a refund, then, instead of being inspected and tossed, put back on the shelf to be sold again.
I went to the loonie store at the corner mall and bought a kite for a toonie, a batwing kite with a snarling leopard graphic. I used the string from the Crappy Tire kite because it was more robust, and heck if the two-dollar kite didn't fly like an eight-dollarer. So the kids flew a kite in the wind, in the sun, on Canada Day.
I hope you've had a good Canada Day, regardless of citizenship or location.
