Dear Richard,
Thank you for your prompt reply. What is so amazing about this is that my daughter found your website by typing
search for a windup flying bird in the search engine. And now I would never have been able to do it because I
wouldnt have done it that way. Well I was truly amazed when I saw the bird on the screen. I had bought one in
1973 for her older sister from a travelling salesman in San Diego and I really thought the bird was extinct. And now
he (Tim) is on his way, thanks to the note you sent us. My daughter will be so surprised on her birthday, July 14.
I will send you a photo of her amazement on her birthday. It is amazing that all I had to do was describe the bird
to her and she could get a line on it (with a little help from you and I). It is a miracle that thrills my heart. Right
now she is at school and she is dissappointed because she thinks it is lost. It costs the same as I paid back then.
(Another miracle) It is very hard to find anything for ten dollars that is worth buying for a little one anymore. She
is going to be 11. She wants this bird more than a noisy mechanical remote control craft. And I can also see in it a
bid of romance of yesterdays. You have blessed our tomorrows with your enthusiasm which is hard to find in these
days of autoresponders. Yours truly, Phylenne and Rochelle.

There are a million things that can be said about all this and the content of your response. And would you believe,
still 10 bucks. Totally amazing, really. So it is a great story. Do not tell Rochelle this story until appropriate (like
on her birthday) -and- delete our email messages so she does not see them. You can always do a printout and then
delete so you have a hard copy. Anyway I have two things to say. 1. I am glad Life put some people in the world
like me. I am happy, honored, to have been there for you and the your daughter. And 2. the other thing I would say
-- is you brought tears to my eyes. Really nice to hear a nice story with a nice outcome. (Watch for the mail. Don't
let her see the package.) She will never forget this event all her life (even when she is 50) -- as you did not forget
the first flying bird many years ago. Reaching for the sky. A positive theme to teach a child. Anything is possible.
Yea !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And you tell her I said ...personally... "HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Richard, Totally Cool

Dear Richard,
Oh, yes, your letters are saved and planned to be part of the present. There is more of the story yet. And of course,
more to come that hasnt happened yet. You see, my daughter was so young the last time she saw her sister who
had the first bird, that she has not begun to have a sister relationship with her. When the day does come that they
begin to make the connection between them, guess what they will have in common. An experience with the awe
of soaring with their favorite bird that made them feel free like the wind. And it is the same bird. Our story brought
tears to your eyes ? Well thank you for being in it. You might consider yourself a sort of catalyst around which
these events are evolving. Who knows but that the little bird will actually play a part in bringing them together.
For some reason unknown to us the sister has broken contact with us. This is, now, a form of contact. I do have
an old regular 8 home movie of Stacie, my older daughter, with the bird- that I had transfered to a video cassette
entitled "Escape to the Fantastic 70's". What are you going to do ? Do you have more tears for your eyes ? I
hope you do. It is pleasing to me that you are joyfully sharing with us. Happily contemplating joy, Phylenne.

The answer to your last question is: yes. Sorry, I am just a human being with feelings. Ahhh, but that means being
"alive." And I am very alive. Enjoy the World and the simple pleasures. Keep me posted. Amazing. Richard david
Happy Birthday ... to you.
Happy Birthday to you ...
