Remember the excitement of your first bounce?

Do you remember your first time on a bouncy castle? We see them so often today that we forget the excitement of that first bounce. I was about thirteen - far too old - when I saw one at Leisureland in Galway on a wet summers day in the late seventies. I had never seen one before, and I loved it.
We were less sophisticated back then. My father had an old projector and a silent reel from Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein. That was our birthday entertainment every year, and how we looked forward to it. Live entertainment was unheard of. Bouncy castles were something they had in America. Then Leisureland got one.
Around this time of year I get my castles ready for the summer. It is not difficult. I blow the thing up, and if it needs repair, I ship it off to an expert. If it doesn't, I turn the hose on it, spray it liberally with detergent, then myself and the kids have a water-soaked afternoon of fun. Standing in one and trying to bounce high enough to scrub the roof is still a blast.
That first time in Salthill, when I was thirteen, I did my best to do a complete somersault . Every time I failed. I landed flat on my back. This week I will be taking advantage of the fine weather for a spot of castle cleaning. And I know at some point the urge will become too strong, and I will take a quick run and try another somersault. And I will fail again. And as I lie on my back looking up at the sudsy roof, I will remember all the years of fun I have had with bouncy castles.
If you hire a bouncy castle for your child's party - or even just for an impromptu bit of fun on a hot day - you will be giving them memories for the next forty years. Not bad for a simple phone call.

Thanks for the nice comments, people. The castles have gone away for the winter, but looking forward to the year turning and getting them back out into gardens again.

My bounce was not first in the class of Chinese language that to stand up for the talent to show the head master. My front partner of the class with whom I was communicating over there got the bouncers by me and also be confused to the answers.

Bouncy castle is so much fun. It has become popular that almost every kid party that my daughter has attended had one. Children love it so much that they can spend the whole day and even the whole of the next day playing in them. But a little tale of caution. Don't plan on getting a bouncy castle up if it is too windy and the party is in an open area. One party I attended almost had the bouncy castle fly off with a few kids inside. Luckily, there were parents looking and avoided the mishap. Have fun but also be alert at the same time.

The powerful light emitted by floodlights makes them very powerful tools for search and rescue operations. This is because their wide beams can be directed to scour large areas from a distance, helping rescuers to find lost or stranded people and animals easily. Portable floodlights are mostly used for emergency services.
