    Ummm....perhaps it was from all of the rain going to my brain, or perhaps it's just me, but could I have a little help here? I always used GP as short for General Principle in writing. Should I be aware of something else before ever using it again? Not that it comes up too often

    +1 and I do not know GP. Should I be ashamed?
    If it moves, you can eat it. No promises you will think it tastes good.

    This actually makes me curious, how many of us are wives who want their husbands to hammock instead of the other way around? And Grannypat how long did it take you to convince your husband to hang? I have only started to hang this year but every time I bring it up to my husband he rolls his eyes, and I get an umm no for an answer when I bring it up.....

    Good job ma'am. With any luck he can hang beside you in March at Huntington. Gives you plenty of time to work up to spending all night asleep in the hammock.


    I can't speak for others but I try to keep my girlfriends outta my hammocks. Otherwise they take them over and i cant slip in for a quick nap after work and want to come everytime I head to the woods to enjoy the silence.
