    1. The same thing happened to me! I tried hula-hooping several years ago and just couldn't do it, but as a kid, it was so easy.

  6. I loved my hula hoop. I used it everyday and got to be the best in the neighborhood. Doubt I could do all those fancy moves now though.

  7. Our school has a hula hoop team who always hula-hoops for the Houston Rockets each year.

  8. Oh yes...we had fun with them.

    I tried to do it again a few weeks ago and wasn't successful. :) My nieces were doing a good job with them.

    Thanks for the memories.

    1. I recently unearthed an old scrapbook that I thought I'd thrown away. What a delightful surprise! Now I've got a huge task - scanning all those photos and mementos.

  14. LOL! Yup! but I could NEVER make them get going round the hips, so I used them like the rolling hoops/sticks toys!

  16. I have never, in my entire life, been able to hula hoop! And, believe me, it wasn't for lack of trying!
