During a spring and summer season in which many activities have closed down or been limited, while spending social time outdoors has become increasingly encouraged, local dad Derek Hammond’s backyard hammock has never seen so much action.
“It’s been one hell of a damn ride,” the hammock told reporters. “Derek is all over me this year.”
Under normal circumstances, Hammond would lounge on his hammock at least once or twice in any given week. This summer, however, the 43-year-old has been out on the hammock with a beer and a book on an almost daily basis.
“Yup, I’m definitely getting my money’s worth out of that hammock this year,” Hammond told reporters. “Nothing like spending the afternoon in a nice hammock on a hot day.”
Also seeing a massive uptick in usage has been Hammond’s set of lawn chairs, which have been used multiple times every weekend for the past four months.
