Well, that business always had its ups and downs, you know. Glad they were tenacious enough to give it a whirl. Fair enough!

You had me guessing for a little bit. I didn't know what is was at first. Neat shot!

At first glance I thought the bright stripes at the top and bottom were bangles on somebody's wrist.
p.s. Thanks for putting me on post of the day

Yup. That's a little scary. But the air brushing on the sign looks like new.

All I can say is eek and thanks, David!

I don't know whether to suffer from nausea or a bit of light headedness on this one.

My wordless isn't so wordless below the photo, but stop by anyway. See ya there!

I am scared of those rides. They are put together too quickly. I would be afraid something would come loose and I would go flying through the air. Isn't it strange how with age comes a lot of common sense? When I was a child, that would be the last thing on my mind.
