Trial By Hammock



Nap launcher, dream netter, warm sunlit bed.
Pants ripper, toe tangler, bone breaker instead.
Sweet delay of gravity, small doorway to bliss.
Dumper of dummies, should you happen to miss.

There's not much to be said
About something like this.

Made my day to see commenting over on Glenn's site.

I'm all twisted and turned around. I had given up on reading about you, though I still have Speed Bumps marked and read a couple every now and then.

I'm Jack Nimble of Google Land, now, and I think I'll just leave it that way after that. Just wanted to make sure that you have always had people out here wondering where/what you are doing or musing about...the pie of the day, a spot to set a while, etc. More than once I've welcomed you, today. Don't know if you're getting old comments. Jack Nimble/hobopals

Well, don't get turned around. I just haven't had much to say, as I am not travelling just now. I get all comments eventually.

Well, it doesn't take much for me to get turned around these days. :)

I have a 2003-4 Dodge Diesel 3500 that I wouldn't give up for the world. Bought it used in 2008. It actually came from Colorado and only had 25,000 miles on it. I loved the feeling of sailing up and down mountain roads with no effort.

My husband and I went from backpacking to tenting to pop-ups to huge motorhomes. For me, alone, I prefer my little trailer. Speaking of length--somewhere--I have found that 21-22 feet is just right. Of course, I had two Labs at first, now one who is getting too old to travel. It's surprising, however, how little room they take up. I've been in the 16-17 foot trailers, and they feel too small for me. Yours, however, looks roomier than the footage--must be the back door entrance.

Again, finding you and reading about your perfect spots made my day. Giddings' Speed Bumps and Perfect Spots. :) Sorry to gab in your ear.

Hi bob, thanks for making me laugh. I am a civil servant needing some comic relief at the end of the day. Even though you haven't written in awhile your previous written words still makes us smile. Did you write that book yet? Sincerely, Nancy
