When was the last time you swung on a tire?

Note: The above profile pic was taken by Scott Mullen for an article about me in a local newspaper. I've known Scott since elementary school, but until this shoot, hadn't seen him in 36 yrs. How cool is that?

  2. I love this photo of you! It made me feel happy. It will be quite sometime before I can swing on a tire... lots of snow here in WI yet and we are just getting over 40 degrees below zero temps. I'd freeze in mid-air on a tire! But, I can dream about it and I thank you for the great image in my mind.

  3. Oh, gosh, I think I feel a poem coming on! Seriously. Such childhood memories. When we first moved into a new home in California, we had no trees. So I hung a tire swing from our rafters in the garage. Every child should have one. (-:

  5. If you get a chance to swing, take it. It's a wonderful thing to do.

  6. What a wonderful photo! You are one of the youngest spirits I know.

    I haven't swung in a while, but when I have (as an adult) it's been great fun.

    Is the picture for something in particular, or just for you?

  7. Patrice-- The photo was taken for an article in a local newspaper.

  8. Silly me! Of course you said that right underneath.

    When and where will the article appear? Is it online?

  9. Hey Patrice-- No problem. I'm often quite silly myself. Here's a link you can cut and paste into your browser:
