You Gotta Have The Right Tool For Every Job

And this, my friends, is my newest and rightest tool! (Aside from the fact that when looked through, it makes you look like an alien.)

For those of you who have not met these before, it is a spring loaded camming device (SLCD) that is as big as my head. With this little puppy, or more specifically, big dog, I was able to safely wrestle my way to the top of that climb that thwarted me last week! Yay!

Previously my largest piece of "protection" (stuff you put in the crack to secure your rope through) was a size three. This Mammajamma is a size FIVE! Yep, that's right, I skipped right over poor number four in favor of the purple people eater! I'm crazy that way.

And in other news that is not AAM (all about me!), I would like to present all the things that are wonderful about little boys.

He's not afraid to rough and tumble football and snuggle his teddy bear all at the same time. Gawd I love him.

...and we all love and marvel at him also! Thanx for the wonderful pic of him, and his alien Mom.
