The Hooping Family

My daughter and her hubby came down and we all passed around the hoop for some good fun and good laughs. Even though my daughter hasn't used a hoop in years, she picked it right up and she is very good at it. Then I showed her youtube videos showing what a great performance art it has become and she was blown away by it and very inspired. Even her hubby gave it a whirl, but he was trying to use brute strength. Still, he could do it for a bit. It's all about the rhythm, not the strength.

Chin balance

I'm getting a little better. I've got the neck hooping down. Now if only I could get the waist going for more than a few seconds. That's where I need the most work.

Jerry Springer Hooper

I turned on the TV and Jerry Springer was on. I was about to change the channel. Then behind the snowball fighting lesbians, I spotted a hooper. Cute little thing wearing those crazy bell bottom thigh-highs with garters. She looked like Shirley Feeny from Laverne and Shirley. Pretty sure it was a wig though. As far as I could tell, she was the show's eye candy. But I bet she gets a ton of publicity from that.
