Posted:This is is folks....the final trivia question.....

What connects the ball chain to the quick links? Whoever can answer gets a hug.

(I've seen ball chain connectors in my local hardware mart but they look flimsy...as well as the ball chain itself..gonna make a trip to the big city to look for better goods. Is there such thing as this ball chain connector that is super strong and heavy duty? Am I on the right track?)


Thru meditation I program my heart to beat break beats and hum bass lines on exhilation....
