I love the picture at the top of the page. To extend the life of the set up for your children’s children we need to get rid of the plastic dishpan! UV will kill that first. I had a friend that taught me some time ago that when the perfectionist in us thinks something is on its last leg we are wrong. How many old barns we see that are falling down through the years we thought would be level the next time we pass it? The next time we pass they look the same….and the same every year the same…. I had the privilege of watching an old sagging barn get demolished after the owner thought it was dangerous. They made 3 trips to get bigger and bigger equipment and finally fought it to the ground. My friend also taught me that motorcycle tires can be run way past the cords showing. I would just cringe but realized the integrity of the tire was in the casing not the tread. Just me rambling here……over how much thing can be abused in eyes of others but in reality they will outlive us all!
