But it did fly!
you’re quite the fun grandfather, Earl (if Nelson’s other grandparents are around, I wonder what the grandfather is like)
I know how to make three different kinds. The doubled-blunt nose flies the furthest, and generally in a controllable curve, but (until ithe nose crinkles from too many hits on the wall) the pointer flies the longest and gets the best swoops.
UAP, not UFO
Kid doesn’t have access to YouTube?
I was told one time Auburn had a paper airplane contest.
Greatest distance traveled: tightly crumpled up paper wad
Longest time in flight: sheet of paper simply released
I once hit a teacher with a paper airplane.
It is too a paper airplane. Haven’t you ever heard of a wad body plane?
Get up and make Nelson a good one Grandpa!
Was this Earl’s way of making sure that Nelson doesn’t ask him to do anything ever again?
Remind me to never fly again…
Someday he will learn……..DON’T BOTHER GRAMPA WHEN HE’S NAPPING
A little grumpy today
I thought it was an origami boulder!
The dontbothermenow design always wins in competitions.
I remember those.
I thought grandpa was going to say “Poof! You’re an airplane”.
Grampa is a jerk.
That’s what I used to do with my cat. I’d wad up the paper and throw it and he would chase it and I would have to retrieve it to throw it again. We’d do that until I got tired.
That was so mean. I can’t stop laughing!
Maybe it’s just a paper balloon?
Or a paper Moon?
Earl, you are so quick witted….sly dog!
Well it did fly better than most of mine.
I was in a “team building” workshop one time and that was our project and that was how I won. My wadded up paper went further than any paper airplanes.
Gimme a sheet to wad for a paper plane
Only got time to make it mundane
Project’s already blown, less than a-croakin’ drone
that’s it- now go away kid, ya bother me! (w.c.fields)
Nap time, not rap time. Oh, well.
“Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings…"
But seriously, great comeback.
