Default My old pal!

Mrs Tripper & I are sheltering in place! She's taking chemo & I'm 71! Pretty easy to avoid people out where we live! I stocked up before the krazy people got outta the gate so I'm working on stuff I've neglected while spending all my time on my car! I'm also building a feed shed for Mrs Tripper's goats.

So to lighten things up today I dragged out my old pal! As a young teen I won lots of yo-yo contests! They even had them at TG&Y in my neighborhood most Saturday's! 1st thing I ever won was a transistor radio... that was hot stuff back then!

Best wishes for Mrs. Tripper. There's talk of closing the liquor stores so I made a run for supplies myself.
One pick up line I used in college, I said I was a national yoyo champ and toured for Duncan putting on demos. I would proceed to perform tricks with my "air" yoyo. Some of them even bought it.

I can't believe you gave us a still shot of a yo-yo, when it cries out for a video. Were you just going to leave us hanging, with a short story and a plain photo?
