Hanging out. . .

According to a bit of research I did, the hammock has been around for over 800 years. The earliest known hammock seems to have been used by fishermen who used their nets both in fishing and for sleeping. Columbus is said to have introduced hammocks to Europeans, and while these ancient beds have become a popular place to relax in the United States, many of the Indians in Brazil still use hammocks as beds.

It's also become one of my favorite places to hang out.
