Simple Things

This is the best and cheapest way to pass the time if nothing else 
Bimini Ring
 going on.  Great "ice breaker" for a gathering. The twine or thin rope is attached to the ceiling and the hook on the wall. Here are some directions.  The ultimate word here is "should". If you get close- Go With It!
  • The hook should be 5’ up the wall.
  • The string should be 5’9” away from the wall.
  • The ring should be 18” from the floor when hanging at rest.
You can create your own "rules" and scores.  As there are just the two of us now....we have marathons!! However you can fine some different games/rules on the Web.

We didn't have this until our 5th house in NC.  We definitely needed it after a trip to the Exumas in the Bahamas... We played often when visiting Bimini.  We thought about leaving it for the new owners of the house in NC...but I already left them my Gnome which didn't go over well with some of my friends. 

Bimini and the Bahamas are a great place to visit.  Now you need a passport so a little more of an inconvenience, but nonetheless a reasonable place to go.  Pack don't need much! If you ever get invited to go by boat, do it!!!  And I don't mean Cruise Ship.  Going off to some of the isolated islands is the best.  We did discover that if you stay and are in control of your own cooking, it is necessary to bring your own staples and some food, also bring detergent, soap and first aid!!!  A bottle of Tide was $16 and that was NOT a large bottle! Don't even think of any beauty products!  I guess this is why most people do the cruise thing.....


  1. my brother loves this game! i've never played but it seems like something i'd get addicted/competative with!

  2. I think I'll have Lou hang one for our patio! Thanks for the instructions on how-to. Love you girl!


Thanks for you comment!
