As far as crowds, we couldn't have picked a better day. The weatherman was calling for a passing shower at 2 pm that we never got (although there were a few annoying spitty type raindrops that fell earlier in the day for 5-10 minutes), and since it was overcast until around noon, I think it kept some people away. The most we had to wait in line was about 15 minutes, and that was for a very popular roller coaster-otherwise it was almost walk on type status for many rides (except for some coasters)all day.
We did think that my son would ride the coasters since he is tall enough now, but he has a small fear of heights so no go. I hope he gets over this when he's older, but you never know. Anyway, we had a good time but I have no pictures to share. I don't know why we didn't take any...
Oh well-I'm glad it's
Book Blurb Friday! This is where Lisa Ricard Claro, from Writing in the Buff, posts a picture meant to serve as a fictional book cover. It's your job to write a blurb about the book in 150 words or less to entice a prospective reader. Are you up to the challenge? Here is this week's picture and my story:
Amber has a lot on her mind this lazy Louisiana morning. Divorced after 25 years of marriage, she decided to use the Internet to track down old classmates who could help her remember the girl she used to be. But as e-mail responses trickled in, a name caught her eye-Michael Stanton, the boy she first loved then hated.
Amber dated Michael in her senior year, but after a three-year relationship he broke things off in a simple letter, and she never heard from him again-until six months ago. At first she didn’t respond-that was a painful time and she didn’t see the sense in reopening mended wounds. But after a casual first reply, it didn’t take long for all those old feelings to come back.
So Amber stands wondering, will this old wooden bridge join her past life to the one she hopes will be her future? (147 words)
I just loved this photo and wouldn't have minded spending some time on it myself... Can't wait to read all your stories!
PS. I did get a delivery today that I am loving and will share later this weekend!
