my jungle gym as a kid was made out of metal pipe. i was passionate about gymnastics and mary lou retton for a time, but too poor to do anything about it. so i would swing and hang right here. i love that tangy mineral smell you get on your hands from metal. i also love the old school jungle gyms and tornado slides. i do not love the scorching sensation you get in high summer on said slides, which is why playground equipment is all plastic these days. makes sense i guess. but i do miss that smell.
have a great great great long weekend. maybe find a jungle gym or some monkey bars?
