Custom Homemade Holder For 13 Hula Hoops.

Teischan (13) currently has 13 functional hula hoops (ignoring the ones that have gone out of shape).

Keeping them in one place, in the garage, without us continually tripping over them, or they falling on my Jaguar XJ8, was becoming a problem.

Today, we came up with a neat solution.

Once we worked it out, and found an acceptable spot in the garage it only took me a FEW minutes to implement it. Basically having to drill one hole through a 4″x4″. Used stuff I had at hand including the rubber tip from one of the 6 crutches I still have. Works beautifully.

I will be happy to tell you how to reproduce it. [No you don’t need two of them. SMILE]

Spur of the moment. Was not planned. I was out taking my daily photos when I caught her practising. She does not let me take too many pictures. So, I snapped 19 of these quickly. She is using 5 hoops. Maybe 6. She has another one coming. In total she has about 8 or 9. Maybe more.

Decided that stitching them into a quick, 20-seconds video was the best way to share them.

Amazon’s Legendary Return Policy Excludes Some Unexpected Products.

Some interesting things here. You should read IF you ever get the time.

First time I have ever experienced this — in 20+ years of buying (and sometimes returning) items from Amazon.

You can return shoes. We know because we had to with sneakers for the kids. Pretty sure you can return clothes too (even (maybe (I think) underwear).

But, I can’t return this? It is neck heating pad. Yes, a heating pad for the neck. NOT ELIGIBLE for return!


I am not devastated. SMILE.

There is a story behind this (of course).

I was doing research for a good friend who is BIG TIME 3rd party (3P) seller on Amazon. He was discovering all sorts of crazy stuff and wanted a non-Amazon vendor to check out certain policies. Well, we nailed this one. It was as he had thought. He just wanted an independent confirmation.

But, I wanted to share. Some of you could really run foul of this.

I have told Amazon that they should have a BIG WARNING, in red, on the product description that says “This Item NOT Eligible For Return“. Doubt whether they will do it.

Hampton Beach, New Hampshire Hit By A ‘Water Advisory’ For This Near Perfect Weekend, i.e., August 24, 2019.

Got this from my friends at “Jumpin’ Jack’s Java” on Hampton Beach — the ONLY PLACE to eat in Hampton.

They are going to be closed!

I suspect other places will be closed too. So, thinks might be a bit dodgy, though there will be those that will still be trying to make a quick buck.

Just check before you go. Maybe take your own food and drink.

Would NOT be a problem for me. I always prefer wine to water. But, this is NOT a joke.

Check if you were planning to go to Hampton this weekend.
