When I think about a parachute, I guess it can usually be imagined white? I certainly know that most of the ones you could get for Action Man were mostly orange, however, they cost money.
Because of the amount of action men I owned, I was going to need quite a bit of material. It would have to be white because that’s how I imagined them to be. And fairly lightweight. As for the guide wires, well, I had no end of string. Alas, no material; or so I thought.
When my eldest sister was to be married, I got the impression that it was intended that she’d wear mums old wedding dress that had been wrapped in polythene and hung in the airing cupboard for years.
You already know what happened, don’t you? Yes, I did finally have lots of parachutes, however, the back of my legs didn’t half throb!
