K is for Kisses and Kites

Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday Round 4 has reached the letter K. For links to participating blogs, click on banner or above link.

We have been having trouble with our internet access, so forgive me if I make fewer comments than usual. I will rush through to view as many posts as I can get to before our server crashes again...

Also in the interest of haste, I just grabbed some photos from my archives: K is for Kiss, and K is for Kites - two of my favorite things. None of these pics have been posted before, although the first is taken just a few minutes after a similar one that I used for a story that I posted a while back.
Kisses

The above photo was taken at the wedding
of Daria and Andy Bishop way back in 1991.


And this kiss is being given to great-grandson Jon
by his mother, Josie Andersen


And now for the Kites

This dragon kite was photographed by
Josie or Charlie Andersen on a beach expedition.


And finally one that I photographed
at the Berkeley
Kite Festival.

That wedding took place in the most romantic setting; an 'aaaahhh' picture ;-)
Your great-grandson is a cute boy.

Oh Granny Smith : ). I just love kisses. What a wonderful post! Filled with love and loveliness. Pretty kites swirling in blue skies! Our sky was so blue today. I wanted to pull over to the side of the road and take a picture!

I'm reminded of the songs
Kisses Sweeter Than Wine
Kiss on My List (Hall & Oates)
Kiss (Prince)
and many more.
thanks.

That dragon kite is stunning - looks like it's just hanging there ready to pounce!

But kisses are always welcome, too! :)

What a lovely set of K's! Couldn't be better! Thank you so much for your lovely wish in your comment! Spring cleaning is almost done. I will be ready before Easter. I like your kites, they remind me of the book "The Kiterunner" by an Afghanistan author, who lives now in the USA.Have a great weekend!
