I've prolly made a hundred hoops. Sold a few, but mostly just give them away. I made my own LED(prodmod) and my own fire hoop. I don't want to write a depressing journal enrty, but at the same time I just feel like getting this out there. I'll be 53 this summer and it feels like I've just been plodding along on my little dirt hoop path. Almost six years now. My problem may be that I am a quiet ,awkward person. I know there are hoopers nearby, even in this town. None close to my age apparently. Age not a problem U say? It is when ur awkward and quiet. For 2 years I went to the YMCA 4-7 days a week. Carrying armloads of hoops in and out. People smile, I smile. We exchange hellos. They may comment that I'm good at hooping. I say "Hey, I have plenty here, try it. It's fun. I know U can do it!" Not one person has ever tried. I feel flawed. I try to be cool and out there, but awkward and quiet is what I am.
