Default The story of the Slinky

I remember as a kid putting my Slinky on the top step at grandmas old house and watching it walk down the many steps.

Great fun when you was by yourself. I remember the dog also, although it wasn't as fun as the regular.

The Pringles potato chip can, idea ect. was patented by Dennis Gage (My Classic Car) and his likeness is printed on the can.He`s got quite the life story with all his career changes.After filming his show he lets his stach loose and it stretches past his breast bone.He`s wacky on TV but incredibly intelligent in conversation.

I was bored with the Slinky in less than one minute... Got one for Christmas when I was a kid... I had more fun playing with a stick... Sorry just not a slinky guy... Later, Dave

I couldn't ever get them to work, I guess I just don't have any Slinky skills
