What a treat today!!!! I am currently performing at the Ohio State Fair ... day 5 of twelve. So today who comes to visit and speak hammock with me but Thorwren and Stormcrow. It made my day as I got to be "Shug" for the day. No one knows me as Shug at the fair ... I am Sean Emery there. I like being Shug. Shug has fun and talks backpacking, stoves, hiking and most of all ... hammocks.
They are a wonderfully beautiful couple and though I had never met Thorwren in person it was like we were all friends forever. Very comfortable. Have had the extreme pleasure to backpack with that fast walking-slug chompin' Stormcrow. To hang out with them together was terrific.
There really is some power to this forum to draw strangers together and be made to feel that you know them and even feel that they are kindered spirits ..... more like family. Wow.....
They hung out at the fair backstage and we talked hammock ALL DAY. My performing friends all really liked them as well.
But here is the deal .... STORMCROW MADE ME WHOOPIE SLINGS!!!!!!!! What a guy!!!!!! I am touched at the kindness.
We went to dinner after I was done for the day in CarnyLand and the check war began
Whoooooo Buddy .... what a fine day.
We are really fortunate to have this hammock sport/art/passion/ to bond us as people. A shared interest goes a long way to unify folks. The world should be this way but we are lucky to find wee moments of it throughout our day.
Thanks Thorwren and Stormcrow ..... you made Shug and Sean's day.
All secure and joyful and Whoopie Slingy in Sector Seven.
Stormcrow ... on recon .... set a listening post!
