Fact of the Day: Native American Hammocks

Hammocks were an invention from Native Americans. The Spaniards were the first Europeans to discover the hammock as they came across them during the Spanish Conquest.

And..The question has to be asked...
Are they good for you...
As it turns out, sleeping in a hammock can actually
help you fall asleep faster and give you “better” rest,
eliminating tossing and turning. Back pain often leads
to discomfort, which can disrupt your sleep cycle and even
prevent you from getting to sleep at all. ... Think of it
like rocking a baby to sleep....! :). Buonanotte...! :0).

I've always wanted to have a hammock in our backyard but we have too many wildlife around that I don't think I can relax in it!

If only Custer had slept in one. He might have left Little Big Horn alone.
