wow, angel piss - that's potent stuff

upon reflection, I realize now that we inherited windchimes with both of the houses we've bought in the past 4 years (and sold one with said windchimes still in original position).

the ones we have here don't make the sound of subtle and pleasing - unless it's blowing like stink - then I guess they make the sound of urgent and scary

My windchimes are a rusted black cylinder with little bats hanging in, and tiny chimey tubes hanging down.

I've always liked windchimes (prefer tone-y to tinkly), but I've loved them ever since my son was bitty, and I happened to be looking at his noob face the very first time he ever heard that sound. His eyes got really big. One of the funniest and most poignant moments of my life.

The marina makes wind songs playing on the rigging and ropes...i've learned to like that random symphony, as long as halyards aren't slapping against masts.

There is a chinese gri-gri hanging from the ceiling in the money corner of my room. It looks like a horizontal dreamcatcher with little coins hanging off of it. It makes sounds like a wind chime, but I only notice it when I'm sitting very quietly.

I love the sound that it makes.

Just took down the wind chimes last weekend and put them in storage; they are too delicate for what's to come. I'm sorry that I can't tell you if I like them or not. They are another thing I tend to. They dangle at one of the entrances to the patio, a few feet across from the foot of my chaise longue (a Mother's Day gift). A couple of times a year I stretch out on it in the shade and fall asleep to their tune.

5.01, 3.59, and 3.22 for an average average of 3.94.

I found I did better if I made the 'right angle' more acute than I thought it should be.

average score was 3.68 - my triangle center sucked but the right angle, bisect the angle and center of the circle were dead on. good game, trish!!
