@coluber2001,
Nice!

I've never been on a trampoline. I had enough trouble with the teeter totter when I was six. For the agile, it looks like fun, although in the last week there has been an article or two on google news that they can be dangerous. (like, duh!)

@ossobucotemp,
They sell those big, round trampolines made especially for kids that aren't all that taut. I've been on one of those and they're pretty safe. Now those olympic style tranpolines where they bounce up 30 feet. Forget it!

@coluber2001,
Trampolines are very dangerous and cause many injuries - learned this the hard way from my daughter's pediatrician after she broke her ankle on one.

the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) suggests trampolines should never be used unless athletes are being supervised in training for a sport like diving or gymnastics.

As the weather begins to break, pediatric orthopaedists expect to see an increase in fractures.

“Kids have been cooped up all winter long,” pediatric orthopaedic specialist Ryan Goodwin, MD, says. “We expect to see trampoline and bicycle fracture rates rise.”

Dr. Goodwin has treated trampoline injuries where bones are broken so severely that they need emergency surgical repair. In addition to fractures, concussions, head & neck injuries, sprains and strains are also common.

@Linkat,
I think I might have liked to try the less dangerous ones, but the opportunity never showed up. I did learn to jump around boulders in Yosemite, and climbed somewhat, my boyfriend telling me I needed to get it better shape (he was an m.d.) It was true, I was on the slow side, but as lots on a2k know, that had to do with my eyes and peripheral vision, which none of us knew about back then, including him. Anyway, I'm glad to have had all the fun I did have, including hitting home runs at St. Nick's.

So, where were we - red foxes.
I've not been acquainted with foxes much, but, from afar, think they are wonderful, no matter how destructive they can be.

@ossobucotemp,
And they're handling themselves pretty well on that trampoline.
