Just A Swinging
Chad and Dana swinging behind the house while Mom watches on.
The thing Chad is swinging on is a water skiing handle that I dug out of the trash at the Boat Sport and Travel Show.
The makers of the handle put on a show where they put this handle through a stress test until it broke and then they had a boy come hang on it to show that you could still use it after it was broken.
They threw out some fishing line into the crowd that I caught and then after the show they chucked this broken handle in the trash.
Well, their show convinced me of the handles strength so I dug it out and brought it home.
We turned it into a trapeze swing and used it for many years until one day I was hanging from it by my legs and it broke. Stupid thing.
