Handstand of the Day....

George Nissen, inventor of the trampoline (imagine how much less fun life would have been before they were around) can still get inverted at the ripe old age of 84.  The first trampoline he ever built used sections of inner tyre tubes to connect the canvas to the frame- before he thought of springs!

  1. I am sooo glad he invented the trampoline! I remember having the time of my life on those things when I was a kid :)
