Broken Disc

I thought Frisbees were indestructible, but we've managed to damage ours. In all fairness, that disc takes a beating and gets used every day under all sorts of conditions. With that in mind, it gets an A+ for durability, but nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky, right? It started out as a small crack that the kids tried to fix with super-glue, but that didn't last, eventually the crack spread to the point where the disc is unusable.

This is a bummer because, as I mentioned, our Frisbee gets used on a continual basis, and is an must-have at the market. In fact, the other day at UF, we arrived and nobody had a disc, including us. We sat around and waited for someone to show up with one, and it made me realize that we need to have one in our possession.

I've made trips to various store searching for them, including Walmart, but they've cleared their summer stock of fun stuff and are gearing up for winter. Even our old standby, Stateline, doesn't have them. I was surprised, but I guess it makes sense in a world that does everything by a script. They are easily found online, but it takes a few days.

So the plan is to order one, but in the meantime, I contacted the resident UF guru, JM, and asked if we could borrow one of his many discs. He said no problem, and left us one to use. Now we have an interim disc until we replace the old one, but at least we have one. A nice one, too, because JM doesn't mess around. One thing for sure, it came in handy at the market. I love when that happens.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Marmot for the pic.
