I am trying to find those plastic tubes that have folds so you can
elongate and contract the tube.  Preferably, I would like to get tubes
about the diameter of a bottle neck.  CAN ANYONE HELP??

Are you talking about those tubes that are similar to the bend in a
drinking straw?  You might check a sporting goods store or other place
that has equipment for hiking and wilderness survival.  Seems like
I've seen something like that at REI or some similar place.

Good luck,

Gavin--

Toy stores sell those tubes in about a 3-foot length.  (They're used to
swing around in a circle to make a howling sound!)

Also, hardware/home builder supply stores (Like Home Depot, Builders
Square, etc.) carry tubes in the plumbing and/or electrical sections.
(Note:  Also a great source for PVC pipe and pipe fittings--cheap and
great for covering with clay!)

Another posibility is a computer store where they sell plastic convuluted
tubes used to contain all your computer or stereo cables--but they have a
slit through the length of the tube to tuck cables inside.

Good luck!
