The Dance Of The Travel Magnets

We were getting a little tired of not being able to see our refrigerator. The fridge door and part of its side were covered in travel magnets. It wasn't very attractive but it was a conversation piece.

The Wife asked me to built some kind of display for all of them. I don't consider myself too handy. I can fix leaks and do simple repairs but decorative things ... I ain't so hot. I eventually relented and started working on a display. The Wife would say I whined, moaned, and complained the entire time ... and she would be absolutely right. Even after I completed the project I wasn't very happy with what I threw together but it does work.

To celebrate the completion, I put together this rather crude animation I call "The Dance of the Travel Magnets." Enjoy.

Our complaint now: The refrigerator looks so naked.


  1. Neat! Now you need to make one that forms that magnets into a walking person or something.

  2. I'm starting to think you have waaaaay too much time on your hands, my friend. ;)

    You could start putting hiking photos on the fridge...

  3. MH: You should do one.

    GH: It didn't take me too long and you can never have enough time.

    We've already hung some hiking pictures in our living room.

  4. My son-in-law has a huge piece of sheet metal on the wall. He puts our granddaughter's art work on it with magnets.

    A naked fridge doesn't last too long here. I always have stuff on it.

  5. Dobegil: It's already starting. Before you know it you won't be able to see the fridge once again.
