Happy National Yo-Yo Day!

My husband once mentioned the Yo-Yo Man who would visit his school and perform amazing tricks with his stringed instrument. The Duncan Yo-Yo Company at one time was the number one producer of yo-yos, claiming 85% of the entire United States. The "Duncan Yo-Yo Men" were professionals who demonstrated and taught yo-yo tricks to children of all ages and, I'm told, created "yo-yo frenzies" wherever they went. Unfortunately the schools I went to were never graced with their presence.

You have never lived until you have seen your nun teachers trying to yo-yo.
