Thought some of you would like to share this video !

This chap is in his 80's,he is a Canadian and deaf.He goes every year to The Washington International Kite Festival.
He flies one kite in each hand and one from around his waist.
Watch to the end and see the landing!
The music is a delight too.

I was imagining it was Mr Dick with a young David Copperfield nearby on the Green near Aunt Betsy Trotwood's house.;-)

What a brilliant performance. And he is so strong and well built for a man over 80. Full of admiration for him. Thanks very much. Diloch yn fawr Brenda :-D :-D
