    Ya'll r Causing this

    I have only been into this hamock gig for a short time, and learn something new every day when I log on.

    This section is always full of good ideas and techniques.
    A few months ago, I never thought I would do this,,,,,,


    I wouldn't dare post this on some of the other forums that I am on........


    But,,,,,,,,,,, ummmmm,,,,,,,, ummmmmm,

    I ummmmm,,,,, got a sewing machine yesterday,,,,,,,,,

    The last time I used something like this was about forty years ago,,,,( my grandmother had one that had a fan belt set up,) man,,,, these things have changed,,,,,

    I did feel funny buying thread and pins yesterday,,, but I am sure that feeling will soon pass......

    shewwwww,,, ok,,, I feel better.

    Yeah...all it took was one trip to Hancock Fabrics to make me realize, I really don't have an inner chick.

    My outer chick can't inject thread to make my gear, so I had to do it myself. Why didn't I find out about that before the wedding?

    Seriously,,,, My first mini project was adding some tie outs onto a Dri Ducks poncho last night....

    HE HE HE HE!

    When I started sewing, um,,, thread injecting, 40 years ago I would be the ONLY male in the fabric store actually shopping. Yea, there were guys there holding their wives stuff, desperately trying to look like they weren't there.

    Now, I have been there when my wife was the only shopping female. The times they are a changing.
