Wind - Give me more

Really windy today. Gusty and shifting, according to the NWS, up to 25. So I abandoned my recent regime of diligently practicing straight and level or simple maneuvers, took out the T-28 and just flew.

Just a little aileron on the upwind leg and the plane vaults into the turn. Then fighting upwind again, reacting to every little gust and vortex coming off the trees. Reminds me of the crows I sometimes see tumbling and playing on the currents near buildings on windy days. What a thrill. I won't curse windy days now.
