Well, a warning is one thing, but don't we all learn better by making our own mistakes? I think it is safe to say, Lachlan has learned his lesson.
I said to Lachlan, I wonder if we could call someone to help. His first idea was to call Mayor John, because he can solve any problem in this town. We had a special meeting with him a while back.
But my first thought was a cherry picker truck. Hmm ... do I know anyone who would have one. Don't think I do. That's when MINET fiber popped into my head. I knew they had some because I have seen them working around town. I also knew that they were a local company with roots in this community and we have always had great experiences with them. So I sent them an instant message through Facebook. I figured I didn't need to tie up the phone lines with this request, but if someone happens to see our message for help and wants to lend a hand, then great!
The next thing I know I get a message back asking for our address, then they let me know they would send a tech out AND there happened to be one in the neighborhood. Not even 10 minutes later he was here and rescuing Lachlan's beloved kite.
I really couldn't stop laughing. It was such a fun and special moment. I am just so thankful for our wonderful community and it warms my heart when we humans help each other. I would even bet, that when this gentleman got the call to save a kite and make a little boys day, it brought a smile to his face. He seemed happy to help.
Once the kite was finally safe and back on the ground we asked for a picture with the kite rescuer - our hero.
