A #1LinerWeds From Me!

Pardon the Anglo-Saxonism…

I made this all myself using GIMP, complete with color and font selection and having to figure out how to outline the letters in black. The font I chose was Kabel, which was quite popular in the late ’60’s and early ’70’s, which is why I chose it. The distinctive letter in the Kabel font is the lowercase “g.”

I was working on something the other day, and was so impressed with the result that I said this to myself, and figured I’d share it with everyone. You’re welcome.


One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word about the new Sports line of Duncan Yo-Yos. Remember, if it doesn’t say “Duncan,” it’s not a yo-yo!

I half-expected Duncan to be out of business, since I haven’t seen a kid with a yo-yo in years. Surprise, surprise: not only are they still around, they have a website. Not only do they still have the yo-yos (many of them the models I remember from over 50 years ago), they still carry the Duncan Imperial Spin Top, my personal favorite.

  2. I had a Duncan glow-in-the-dark Imperial, and my brothers had red Duncan Butterfly yo-yos. The Butterfly made me think somebody stuck the pieces together the wrong way and said, “Hey! A new product!”

    1. You can’t beat the price, and it’s fairly stable. If there are issues, you might need to search around the Internet for solutions, but there are enough people who know it that can tell you what to do. I haven’t run into any problems, and I’ve used it for a while.

  3. So what did you accomplish? I might borrow this statement since is difficult for me to say this about myself but I think 8t should be said. We are our own worst critics,
