She made a type of playground equipment on her farm as a child. She cut the top off a 4-6-inch sapling, except for a dowel sticking up in the middle. Then she got a ten-foot board and bored a hole in the center to go over the dowel (greasing it with axle grease). A kid would ride on each end and she would push them around - a dangerous ride.
