Twister

The stripped Dumbos and their chariot are GONE -- ooh, I wonder if they're off getting a makeover?!! THAT will be cool to photograph, if so!! I've taken to carrying my Daddy-O Cam in the car with me every day -- and look! Today I was rewarded with a different ride, loaded but parked. Gates still locked, though!! Eesh, blimey, and potential photo op SHITE! ?? Why do they remind me so much of those thingies that storm chasers load into the 'Dorothy' machines they drop in the path of twisters? The little data collectors, like in the movie? I like the rides better in color. I'm a twister kinda wench -- I love rides that go in every possible direction at once! I love how the top of the chain link mimics the tips of the ride carts, and then the razor wire loops the way the ride motion would. And I HATE that stoopid fence being in the way.

Hey Toni, no rides for me girl...not since splash mountain in Florida. With my illness I have some fluid on the brain too, so have to be a little careful, however maybe i could live vicariously through you. I like the top of the fence how it was like the rides. Take Care and have a great day, cinner

I don't do spinny stuff!! However, as an English teacher, I could make up all kinds of malarky about the juxtoposition of the binding qualities of the fence versus the freedom of carnival rides. Just pretend you did it on purpose. And, if you ever need a malarky spin, I'm your girl! I do all my spinning figuratively, not literally!

Bring on the spin!

Just keep the dizzying heights and those untrustworthy roller coasters for yourself. I do not do the coasters. I almost had an unfortunate event with one once, and prefer walking back to the parking lot versus the possibility of riding one of those things that has jumped the tracks out to my car...

But, spinning, and going fast closer to ground? You betcha. Get us some tickets girl!
