    gave up the bed o'er the hammock

    So my snoring has gotten to the point that my wife often would go to the other room to sleep. I felt bad so I gave her the bed back; the one we bought for my bad back. Now I'm sleeping full time in the basement in my BB. Does this mean I get to buy a new hammock for camping since this one has become a full time bed? hmmmm.

    I think so. Now all you have to do is figure out what hammock you want!

    There was an Old Man with a owl,
    Who continued to bother and howl;
    He sat on a rail, And imbibed bitter ale,
    Which refreshed that Old Man and his owl
    .WOO

    Snoring huh? I've tried to use that as a means to sleep in my hammock full0time but no dice yet. Might need to crank up the volume first!

    I've heard smoking makes you snore louder, not a great habit, but we all have to pay a price for great things. :P

    Search 'snoring sound bites', download, play over and over. Don't get caught.

    i am a smoker so i guess that doesn't help with the snoring. But I am sleeping well now. No more bruised ribs from her elbow jabs. "Hammocks....ending spousal abuse"

    I shelled out some big bucks ($80) and got myself a big cotton brazillian, and it's fantastic. The cotton will eventually streatch and conform to your natural positions, and gets softer with every passing night, making it gloriously comfortable. Plus, the extra room doesn't hurt.
    Set fire to the night, for light is only made bright by darkness.
