        No hail here but freezing rain and 30mph winds. Watching the air lock on my fermenter bubbling away after yesterday's brewing.

        ok OM,,, I think you're just milking the cane thing now.. you can't exactly get seen jumping off your pedal bike to use a cane ,,, me thinks you just want badass beater to fend off punks,, disguised as a cane

        @PIE not so my friend..if you got a twisted knee..the pedal bike is the best thing to use for excersice & going to the store is better than walking
        use the cane when buying food items...is my plan with this....and yes if the case arise's a badass beater stick..Not really looking for that end of the deal as a beater stick....

        Folding canes scare me. I just use paracord to tie my cane to my bike when I ride to the store. The handle sticks out the back but I already get funny looks anyway.

        Maple saplings make great canes. They grow upside down. Dig one up. In the meanwhile take it easy, OM. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

    I am a old time with slingshots get mt start back in 1955 when grandpa made me a sling..ya know the 1 you whirl around your head...Gandpa said when you can hit 20 tin cans in a row from 25 feet..He would see I get a store sling shot....That did take some
    time as I remember..But I did it..go a wrist rocket...
    had that & shot it for many years....well went in to the Military
    ..and when ..some how my slingshot was missing..So
    for many many years as my life rolled forward I for got about slingshots all together....let's see about 3 yrs back I had lost almost all arm strength..as I was surfing the web sites I read about using a slingshot for building up arm strength & have fun doing it..
    Boy was I ever shocked by all the new market stuff for slingshots
    I got a slingshot non wrist brace (tubes) But was too much for me to pull back..so I read & read about slingshots forund a couple of forums & watched U-Tube video's....Bought a flat band shooter
    found some bands that was light weight to draw..less than 5#
    well I worked & worked with many error's & flustrations & was asking for help right along....To make a long story short I am now pulling 14#...shooting ever day some time's 3 different time in the day....Just having fun busting soda pop cans...that's pretty much it
