    Talking on phone & laying in hammock

    While talking to client - unless client doesnt care you fall asleep on them - I suggest not to lay on hammock

    I laid down in my brazilian hammock while on phone and I think I lost about 3 mins of the conversation.

    time for coffee!

    I've no problem with the phone in a hammock. It's typing on the iPad that has me in contortions.

    I was just babysitting. Gdaughter wanted to swing, then I turned on Barney and she was sitting in the chair while singing with barney. Next thing I know she's yelling pappa, my phone is ringing and my son and son in law are all asking different questions all while Barney was singing.

    I was comfortable, why couldn't they just leave me alone??

    Does that constitute billable hours?

    I need a way to hang my phone or tablet from my ridgeline so I can watch a movie or read an eBook without holding my device. Not sure how to do that on a regular gathered end but I bet that's not hard on the Amok =D need to try that next week.

    i do this ALL the time. bad as i hate to i have to visit with certain clients while hiking and camping.

    and as a rule my clients know that, unless what they're telling me is downright EARTHSHAKING, that i'll likely forget the conversation and that they'd better email me or catch me in the office when my brain is sure-enough "on".

    its very much like those sidewalk conversations. they don't stick.

    cheers,

    sv-
