No Gnews is Good Gnews
The rings we found were as simple as possible. Simple might just be a classy way of saying "cheap", but really we were more concerned with our safety and accountability while traveling. The thought of having our rings mark us as targets for theft, or more likely loosing them in a drunken pub crawl, was cause for evaluating our needs. Plus I promised to buy Claire a fancy one when we get back. Fancy being the classy way of saying fancy.
This past Saturday was an adventure all it's own. We started at Home Depot on 23rd St to pick up dowels for the pinwheels and spent the next 5 hours making our way down to Ground Zero, where yes, there actually is a new building that some people walk past every single day but have failed to notice (ahem, Claire!).
The pinwheels have been driving Claire crazy even though they're my responsibility to design and build. There's a transitive argument in there that really I'm the one driving her crazy, but she swears it's just the pinwheels. Regardless, we've settled on the design and construction directions. (Fingers crossed for the prototype).
Oh, and I've also trained Claire to perform a mini power ranger move every time I say the word "activate".
