    I got into yo-yo's a few years ago and started collecting them. It didn't take very long to realize that you can spend several hundred dollars for good yo-yo's. I didn't but you could. I did buy some very nice ones and like any thing else you can buy all kinds of accessories to go with them.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Man every kid I knew growing up had a yo-yo, a few baseball cards and pocket knife and wore a pare if Chucks growing up in elementary years before HS. If someone had a trick you had to learn it. Ah the good ole days. LOL Good video
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
