Nice ones, @johndmc & @HansNickmans.
Today I've been trying LH>Axe>In in the van passenger seat. Not got it yet, but @Mad0zak got a 0-1-2 Jumping Stick. :)

Been mostly ill or dead tired since I got back from EJC. Today I picked up a kendama for the first time. To glue tips. :-)

Yesterday I tried and failed multiple times to get a double whirlwind - barely even came close. Back to the drawing board I think, tough trick... might try something easier today and come back to it :)

Yesterday I wondered which should be my first trick on my new Royal Plush. I spent ten minutes trying Around Oban, before switching to...

.... Axe Somersault. I'll take it. :)

Also, went to the post office today.

Nice 1-Turn Swap Spike, @johndmc . A good one to get in the repertoire.

Apart from a brief go at the latest Endless Combo in the kitchen (which I can't re-enter yet anyway), I've had a few days off due to work and weather. Looking forward to tomorrow's Swansea session.
These have been leaking out though....

Been trying to improve my lefty tricks; finally got both 200 moshis, 1 bird out of 10 and hanging spike too. The rest of the dan tricks I'm ok with so I managed to pass lefty first dan!

Today I did a yank spike first try on a mini kendama. Then tried again and got it again in about 5 tries... off camera obviously.

Was this prompted by losing a game of leftyKEN at the last Bris meet?  ;)
Seriously though, that's impressive. Don't think I ever went beyond lefty 1st Kyu, but I can't really remember.

Obviously. ;) Nice though.

Today I passed my 6th Dan practice, which was pleasing after failing on 3 tricks on Saturday.

Just tried, and got 2nd Lefty Kyu. 26 Moshi was my best in 2 goes! I'm obviously leftyrusty. :)

Another pass on Friday, then another fail today. (1 JStick) Been tidying my computer's desktop, which throws up lots of tasks to be done, so not much play for me this weekend.
