we played with string

Back in the days before the dawn of time, back before the days of Atari, and cable TV, we amused ourselves with simpler entertainment.  Here my brother takes a step back in time and demonstrates how to create the ever-popular "cup and saucer" with a string.  I, for my part, could remember the "rocket ship", the "parachute", the "chicken-foot" (which is the parachute turned upside down) and the most difficult of all - Jacob's Ladder.  I was kind of amazed that I can still remember those things after 30+ years.  Our kids didn't "get it" at all.
