Been seeing more and more of these along all the MUPs. I think of them as the Motorcycle Gang from Kiddie Garden. Probably HS age.

No ringing at all. Just the sound of water splashing. That would be really cool if they made them ring.

Agreed, that would be neat if they rang.

That amount of water probably damps out the ring. It reminds me of last winter when on a rainy morning I rang my bell when approaching an oncoming group of kids. The bell just went “clunk”. My apology was “my bell drowned”. We all got a laugh out of that. No problem this year, bell ringing loud and clear.

Yes!

No more COVID-related closures, and I’m now feeling good enough, so I’m going for it. Doing a couple of days a week first, then I’ll bump it up more.
