    Hammock saves my day...

    Had a horrible day at work, busy chaotic stressful, 12 hours of crud... Came home, wife ordered pizza I showered and set up my turtledog and hung my time machine(silver tablecloth hammock) added insulation and am laying out watching NetFlix, and eating pizza and looking at the stars... Only thing that would make it better is a glass of wine...

    No pictures because its dark...

    Beautiful night to end an almost unbearable day...

    Nice, thanks for sharing! It even helps calm my nerves just thinking about going out to hang.

    I can relate. Hammocks are funny that way.

    At the end of each day I am reminded of how nice life can be, as I end my days by climbing into my hammock for the night. I am really blessed, as my wife understands what the hammock does for me (she also says that it works for her too, as it gets me out of her way, lol). The point remains, that a good hammock and the opportunity to use it, can do much to correct a lot of a days problems.

    Man, I wish I hadn't shipped my UQ to Hammock Gear to add secondary suspension. I can't even hang in my office without getting a chill (and no, I'm not going back to pads, no way).

    The good news is the old 20* UQ will be home soon, and he'll have a buddy to play with, a full length HG 0* Incubator! Happy times for me soon!

    Glad you could decompress like that Brute.

    My decomp time usually doesn't start until around 930 when all of the kids are sleeping....and what am I usually doing? Dishes....**** dirty dishes. So keep up the good work!

    +1 on that. Glad you found some downtime. Mine usually involves hanging and an ice cold beer. Might need to do that this evening as a matter of fact....
