My 5 minutes of Hammock Therapy

email from friend tells of her 1st attempt at "Hammock Therapy":

 First of all a little history:

MM and I have known each other for a VERY long time-
We sort of  lost track (didn’t look) of each other- Also for a very long time-

You know how people cross your mind for no reason sometimes?
Well I was at my computer and MM just popped into my mind and I typed in his name
on search- and Poof there was a blog with his name on it- I’m thinking No Way!
 But I started reading it and then looked at the pictures and there he was-
I just Love the internet- I swear my IQ has gone up 10 points-

 Anyway he makes himself very accessible on his blog so I wrote him a note-
Not wanting to be intrusive I did put my information in the note- Just said hi and ask if he remembered me-
 I hardly ever use my Yahoo email address but  am on the Yahoo FoursquareHouses group because I’ve been restoring my house and keep the step by step pictures and we (the group) post questions and information there-
 I noticed I had mail and it was MM- We were both pretty surprised- I mean it’s only been… (I can hardly even say it!)
30 years-
MM has defiantly changed over the years- We were both super hyper back in the day- More energy than we knew what to do with-
 I was really surprised to hear about how much time MM spends in the hammock… Hermit! That also surprised me- After all I knew MM as Mr. Social, out and about constantly- Not the Hammock guy! Well I guess he’s still social but now its on the internet- Pool games are best at his home- Frisbee is best on his beach- You know, Hermit stuff-

 But the time spent on the Hammock amazed me- MM convinced me I should try it- So I bought one- But I’m still working and still restoring my house and I have a 57 Thunderbird an family that need care and feeding (not literally) but you know how families and old cars require a lot of attention-
 I never got around to any of  MM hammock therapy- So one beautiful Texas Saturday I went out and got on the hammock and took pictures of what I saw laying there, to prove to MM I did it-
 It lasted about 5 minutes- In that 5 minutes all I could think about was what all I need to do- The cell phone rang twice (not a good thing to take with you for hammock therapy)  and the neighbor came over to see what I was doing-

I’m retiring in February and I am going to make myself get into Hammock Therapy- and I hope I’m as happy in retirement as MM is- Hermit,  is maybe going a little far for me but you never know, as time goes on-

  1. Three years ago I bought my first hammock chair for my then 9-year-old daughter. It was so comfortable, we had to flip to see who got to sit in it for sunset. Two years later, I bought two more. I paid $99 each. I decided this year that everyone should have the chance to enjoy hammock chairs so I opened my own store. We're new so please come visit. You can find us at If you browse the stores, our name is Thanks! I hope you like our selection!

  2. Hey Michael..! After a long week of work it's sometimes good to remain at house and chill out rather than go out and do something. hammocks will allow the particular person to move and not be isolated from their acquainted environment.
