TEENAGE ENTERTAINMENT - 1925-1932
Talk about fun! Saw a 6 to 8 inch tree off about 6 feet from the ground. Drive an iron peg into the middle of the stump. Saw a pole about 16 feet long. Bore a hole in it in the middle with about 8 feet on each end. Put the pole onto the iron peg (use lots of axle grease!).
Then get on and take a ride. Talk about roller coasters or thrill rides! You havenít taken a thrill ride unless youíve ridden a FLYING JENNY made by your father.

-- This device was originally
used to turn the stone wheel which ground the corn at a grist mill. A mule
was used to turn the wheel and a female mule is a Jenny. And there you
have the logic behind the name "Flying Jenny" --
