While looking for the natuon's smallest jail, we stumbled across a zip line in a small park. It was hung up part way down its cable, but Bill got it moving again, climbed the platform and swung out. Flying along the cable, he discovered why the pulley was hung up the way it had been. The pulley abruptly stopped, leaving Bill dangling like a participle four feet off the ground. I was on the phone and attempting to keep myself from wetting my pants, I was laughing so hard, but Janelle had the wherewithal to pull the rope towards the other end.
The nations smallest jail was... wait for it... small. I took a picture with my regular camera. I hope to post that picture and the movie of the zip line incedent when I get home.
A couple on their way to a birthday party stopped and gave us each a beer. Most of mine went to Sara. Budweiser. Snobby, aren't I?
