Posted:The chains are made so you can replace the wicks when they wear out. You can take them off to put tennis balls or glowsticks on when you practice.

The new clasps are quite stiff at first. You will require a loop of cord coming out of the tennis ball in order to attach to the clasp.

It was a distinguished word, and pleasantly countered by the flatness of 'soup'. The soup of the afternoon. Yes. In which may be found the croutons of teatime."
