Putting four double stands together and giving it a number of turns. When it gets tight one pushes a cloverleaf shaped tool slowly to the other end and binds the two ends. Instant rope put together by generations of people at a tiny historical museum in a town called Weeping Water, Nebraska. What a unique machine provided by a very unique couple who devote long hours to maintain this tiny museum. I was impressed with what they had since this was where my mother went to high school and I was blessed to see her yearbook and picture again after so many years. Boyhood dreams relived warmed my heart and soul.
This lady made her first rope on a grade school outing and had brought her children here during a fall festival to do the same as she had when she was their age. Simple fun and happiness found out on the prairie.
