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.
