    Recipe for Joy

    My middle daughter's b-day was this week, so I ran to Hancock Fabrics grabbed some polyester jacket-liner from the clearance rack for $.99 per yard (at 90% off) and cranked out a gathered end.






    3 kids down, 4 more to go. Then we all combine forces and take over the world/the Missus--she'll be hanging within two years!
    You're gonna need a bigger hammock

    so your recipe would be...?

    1 bargain adventure
    1 backyard
    2 converted swing sets hang-a-ma-jigs
    1 steel pole
    1 roll of pimp daddy jacket liner material
    1 smiling kid with a pinch of birthday

    I find it quite amusing that you posted the turtledog stand before this one, I see where your priorities lay.

    Nice job, dad

    Nice job, dad
    You can say what you want, but let me hit you with some knowledge--a hammock's novelty factor for a 7 year old could wear off, and the smiles with it... but a turtledog stand lasts Daddy a lifetime


    Thanks all! I appreciate the support.

    I totally got that, I was just looking for an excuse to say "Let me hit you with some knowledge"!

    Sorry if the intent of the reply was unclear; I need to work on my emoticon etiquette
