    July 22 ~ National Hammock Day

    Our nation celebrates it only once a year but around here every day is Hammock Day.

    Here's wishing everyone a happy Hammock Day!!

    Hammock Day
    Picture this: it's mid-July, the sun shines and you rest on a hammock, completely relaxed. This is the essence of Hammock Day.

    Today’s reason to celebrate reminds us to slow down, breathe easy and enjoy these beautiful summer months. Though its exact origins are unknown, it is said that hammocks originated hundreds of years ago in South America. Allegedly, the journals of Christopher Columbus provide the first documentation of the hammock. However, some sources attribute this invention to the Ancient Greeks. One thing is for sure—hammocks have always been symbols of leisure.

    Today, take a few minutes to sit back and unwind on a hammock. Don’t have one? No problem! Just grab some sturdy fabric and rope—you can make yourself one in no time. Happy Hammock Day!

    A few minutes? After running the wife on a couple errands, I've been laying in mine all afternoon!

    July 22 ~ National Hammock Day

    Our local TV station has a morning show in which they asked viewers to email in pictures of their hammocks. This is what they had to say about mine.

    I don't know where that came from, but it was funny.
