Event June 19 Hooping

On June 19, 2010 at El Dorado Park there is an event that combines World Juggling Day and Knit in Public Day. It's at an archery range. So I'm going to take my hoops, juggling equipment, archery gear and knitting supplies. There is a small fee to drive into the park. I think it's $7.00. Bring something to share at the potluck as there are no food booths. We are on our own. If you do not live near Long Beach, CA you can check the IJA website for other World Juggling Day events near you.

Need Some Inspiration?


My New Claim to Fame

I just found out that the Wham-o company first marketed their legendary hoops in 1958. "Wham-O has become the most successful manufacturer of hula hoops in modern times. They trademarked the name Hula Hoop ® and start manufacturing the toy out of the new plastic Marlex in 1958".

Guess what else happened in 1958? I was born. Wow, that's a weird bit of synchronicity isn't it?

Making Time For Hooping

Ever try to squeeze in some hooping and there just aren't enough hours in the day? Well, I have one of those clothes dryers that never quite gets everything dry. So then I have to put the timer back on for 15 or 20 minutes and wait out in the garage. But today I grabbed my hoop hanging nearby and got a good solid 20 minutes of hooping in. I felt better the rest of the day for having done it.

And there is always this big black woman that drives by and scowls at us. But when she saw me hooping today she actually smiled.  A great big Cheshire cat ear to ear smile. Rock on.

February is a Good Month for Hooping

The weather is getting better. Time to get back into hooping.
