Rocky’s Nut Brunch

28 Jan

Welcome back friends to another week of Rocky’s Nut Brunch.  I’m coming across so much interesting information these days.  Today is another great one to share.

Do you know the name of Edward “Steady Ed” Headrick?  I bet you know his work.  Headrick was the inventor of – wait for it – the frisbee.  See how it’s funny that we know the inventions but not always the name, right?  Headrick felt that the frisbee had some kind of spirit involved and wasn’t just a playful toy thrown back and forth.  He thought of the frisbee as making beautiful flight.

Headrick passed away in 2002.  And like many other creators, he wanted something special done to his ashes.  For years he joked with his family but when it came towards the end, he told them he was serious.  He wanted his ashes mixed into new versions of the frisbee into limited editions.  Headrick then wanted these special edition frisbees sold and all proceeds to be put towards a museum in his honor.

    I doubt that it would have been allowed. Disposal of remains would have been a regulated issue. It would have made world news.

    Hmm, that request seems more than odd to me. To each his own, eh?

    Is this the definition of hedonism? Ewww, I can’t imagine having one of those frisbees!

      It would totally be weird. Can you imagine the family saying, “Let’s go outside and toss dad around?” XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. Daddy always jokes that he wants to be made into a woman’s riding saddle so he can be between the two things he loves…. a good horse and well you know…. snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

       

This piggy would love to snort with you :)
