In 2009, after retiring from IBM, Susan and I travelled to the far east for a holiday. I took “The Gripp II” stress ball with me, and started writing a silly blog at thegrippii.wordpress.comwith the title “The gripping adventures of a squeeze ball“. It only just dawned on me that this SB was missing from the list. Now corrected. The photograph shows the ball in it’s current state. It’s no longer squeezable but it does help reduce stress.
Herb Miller lives in Rowlands Castle with his wife and two cats. He's been collecting SBs for nearly half his lifetime. If you ask him why he’ll say Simply Because. His favourites to date are the short but sweet, palindromic sub bus, the sulphurous brewmasters Googlewhack and of course, seriously bonkers, simply brilliant and silly B. He fully expects his short booklet to become a shortlisted bestseller.
