Slinks

It’s Sunday and we love it. This time of year, baseball and football are on the tube pretty much at the same time. Pick and choose as you see fit. It’s still August and the dog days are upon us depending on where you live. Labor Day is coming and soon after the season will change. Start thinking about that now. But not too much. Don’t want to spoil the day or the rest of the summer, however short it’s becoming. The Slinks are reporting for duty and are in their ranks below.

(Note: I tried adding up the total time of all the videos below and I came up with a number of more than 30 hours. This may or not be right, but it’s probably close.  It’s difficult adding so many minutes and seconds and dividing by 60. And I don’t know how pi enters into the calculation.)
