    No Stealth Hammock "60's Commemorative"

    I tode you it was gonna be bright. I know this should go down in the DIY section, but just wanted to share this new found hobbie......

    I have no intentions of using this,,, or at least not any time soon.

    But I wanted to do a differnt theme besides camo......

    I reckon I can donate this to a road crew,, so they can direct traffic and sleep at the same time,,, instead of leaning on that shovel watching the guy in the ditch do all the digging.

    oh! my eyes! I'm blind!

    These make even the classic-now-retired Kelly Green of JRB quilts pale in comparison.

    True story---my son and I were to run in the Chicago Marathon. Tens of thousands of runners...we didn't want to lose each other in the crowd, so I found polypro tee shirts for road crews made with this kind of intensity, but in orange.

    I think I see a couple of enthusiastic hangers for whom the color would not be an issue... Dad.. you might need to revise your plans for that hammock. It looks "taken" to me.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Ahem... you aree limiting your kids to just one hammock? And just how many do you have dad? huh? huh? Sounds more than a bit arbitrary to me.

    RE: the diaper bag... be careful.. I've seen this kind of ploy backfire. That digital camo diaper bag might just become _your_ diaper bag with all the benefits and risks which come with having your own kit. Then who'll get taught what?

    Thumbs up

    I made a toga out of what looks like that exact same fabric!

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen
