A new toy

Wheeeeeeee….
My niece Holly (who modeled for the siren/mermaid in Somewhat Perillous) came up with this idea of hanging an old steel wagon wheel tire from the maple tree and using it for a swing/circus hoop. We found the tire half buried alongside the ruins of the Glendale School which burned down about a hundred years ago. Tim lashed it to the tree with a tow rope rated at 30,000 lbs. that we are pretty sure will hold us. Next time Holly visits we'll start practicing daredevil tricks. By the end of the summer we'll be so amazing I'm certain Cirque du Soleil will be calling us to join them.

A good idea. Once you have an engagement in the circus, I'd like to come take a look :)

I promise you all free tickets when we get into the circus. The dandelions have been so abundant this year. I just love them and have avoided mowing the lawn because I don't want to knock their little heads off - though Holly and I have eaten a few.
