Description:My neighbor, who owns a landscaping business, knocked on my door asking if there was room in our yard wast bin. It turns out he was on a deadline to finish removing the citys Christmas decorations and brought the last of it home with him. The industrial wood chipper had made short work of the mess, decorations included. I told him I had a better way to help. Grabbing my spindle I began twirling and shouting By the power of centrifugal force I am spinning yard waste!!! When I was done everything was neatly chain-plied and skeined, laying in their driveway.
