You all know my obsession with the slinky... (it's slinky - a slinky - so fun - it's a wonderful toy......not to mention 'ooh shiny') On our Chicago trip, my girlfriend bought me a twisty slinky key chain in cool rainbow colors! (yes I probably look a bit like Quasimodo when I say that). It's been 2 weeks and tonight was the first time I had to play with it....
Bud & I took it out in the back 40, hung it from a tree over the edge of the cliff at the sandpit weighted it down with keys, then I climbed part way down the side, and hit it with a long stick to get it boinging around and snap a bunch of shots while he was mushroom hunting nearby. (it was one of 'those' weeks at work, my mind was shot and my back and knees were not about to tolerate me bending over staring intently at the ground, let alone crawling through thick brush)
It worked... my mind relaxed and we had a great time.
