“How would you get through your youth without learning to throw a Frisbee?”
Morrison and his future wife, Lu, used to toss a tin cake pan on the beach in California. The idea for what would become the Frisbee grew as Morrison considered ways to make the cake pans fly better and, after serving as a pilot in the second world war, he began manufacturing his flying discs in 1948.
He would hawk the discs at local fairs and eventually attracted Wham-O Manufacturing, the company that bought the rights to Morrison’s plastic discs.
Morrison sold the production and manufacturing rights to his Pluto Platter in 1957. The plastic flying disc was later renamed the Frisbee, with sales surpassing 200m discs. It is now a staple at beaches and spawned sports such as Frisbee golf and the team sport Ultimate.
The weather is supposed to be crappy.
Also yesterday, I worked the night shift, I went in at midnight and took the station off the air to do some studio work. So, after my appointment, I went to the beach!
It was a nice weekend, went to the beach Saturday and Sunday. We got a cold front and it rained Saturday night. We were supposed to dive Sunday, was very windy Sunday morning.
I haven’t been posting as much as usual, I have been studying Spanish in the mornings at the same time I usually post in my blog.
Today is February 8th, I’ve been on the island for 13 years and 4 days. I missed my anniversary. My wife remembered on the 5th.
I’m very glad the New Orleans Saints won the Super Bowl too.
Have you a good week!
It’s Friday, I for one am glad.
I’ve been off for a couple of days, so it’s like a Monday for me, Monday of a very short week.
Today I have the day off. I have been taking a lot of time off because I have so much comp time. It looks kind of cloudy right now, hopefully it will get sunnier!
I have found a free podcast called Coffee Break Espanol that I think it much better. Check it out!
