    My GreenBean Hammock Done Gave Out Today

    Yes. My heart is heavy.
    Shooting a video on ridgelines today and ol' GreenBean gave out. The stress of a tight hang was the un-doing.
    Me and that hammock been hanging since 2009.
    Many, many a trip together. GreenBean cradled me in comfort around the country.
    GreenBean served me well.
    There is a GreenBean 2 on the horizon.

    My condolences to you, Shug. But I'm sure that GreenBean is now resting peacefully between two awesome trees in heaven.

    Awwww. Poor GreenBean! He illustrated the ins & outs of hanging to so many new hangers! Maybe he will be reincarnated as stuff sacks!

    My condolences. I hope you were not injured, Shug - that looks like a tough spot.

    Condolences to you and Franken quilt. I'm sure Franken quilt is just a shell of himself. Wondering who he's gonna spoon with now in the piney woods.
