Play With a Purpose

We did this sometimes, but without the wheel. Looks like fun.

As I recall, we had a few barrel hoops.

You did NOT have barrel hoops. I didn't even have barrel hoops. Okay. Maybe you did. I don't remember shit.

downtown guy said...

We totally did. They fell off the barrels you used as planters that time. They were rusty metal and I remember what they smelled like.

Barrel hoops has nothing to do with it. You can't make a human wheel barrow with a barrel hoop! You can keep your barrel hoops.

I remember that they were always around, but I don't for the life of me remember what we did with them.

we always had these huge spools in the yard at mawmaw and pawpaw's house that used to have cable on them. good fish cleaning tables.

downtown guy said...

Hey look, you're official! Yep, we had those around, too. Sometimes the huge ones that you could climb up on.

mostly they were just yard tables, used for whatever was going on outside. occasionally though i would turn one on its side and try to walk it some where. sort of like a circus performer.

Did it ever work? I think I tried that on logs and stuff.
