OK, Larry D.!!!  Now that is a good way to get your leg into it.  That is, indeed, a kickstart of a different sort.  Good work.

Nicely done!  :)

I bet your wife was not around . . . (mine wouldn't let me try it in "her" kitchen).

Don't worry, I won't ask for a boomerang.  :D

PS: Your legs must feel pretty good!

Both feet!  HA! HA!
Jim, I had to leave something for other members to try. ???

Perhaps I should create a "Patch" and include that trick?
Or, a future contest?  :-\

Must give it an official name - NOT!
