Things That Tickle My Funny Bone
|Spotted in a parking lot somewhere in Denver|
|Mr. Taylor is the little boys' new hero. The girls think that, considering his second|
reason for good health, he probably never had a chance to try out the first reason...
|Oh, and here, incidentally, is Charlie's water wheel, just outside Idaho Springs, Colorado|
|Just inside the gates at Heritage Square Amusement Park near Golden, Colorado...|
If it were outside the gates, they might have fewer patrons, I'm thinking.
(But ya gotta love the sense of humor... and the cautionary hint!)
At Heritage Square -- lots of great photo ops like these:
And where all the children got to take a couple of turns on the Alpine Slide -- the first time any of them had been on the slide, or on a ski lift chair...
And here's the view looking back:
Were they scared?
Are you kidding?
They didn't want the rides to end!
Above pictured are Anna and Cathy -- Cathy in a sling because she hyper-extended her elbow doing acrobatics off a swing a couple weeks ago (=sigh=) -- but that's not enough to stop our Cathy, heaven knows.
William rode down with me or Dan, and thought we went to slow. Everyone had a wonderful time -- even Theresa, who took a spill half way down the mountain... (only a half dozen more sessions with the chiropractor to see the end of the Alpine Slide now...). And her middle aged mother had a blast, too, but she had not expected to be engaging in such activities that morning when she got dressed and wore a long green gypsy skirt that caught the wind and flew up over her head half way down the mountain while racing Michelle... (Now, seriously; don't even try to imagine that picture! ) No worries, though -- there was not a soul in sight as I rounded a hidden corner -- and you can imagine I whipped that skirt back down and tucked it under me faster than a wink! But, alas, the kafoffle caused me to lose time, and Michelle beat me down the mountain. Drat. There will be a rematch eventually.
And she was.
But also Thrilled as only she can be...
And the following photos are just random goofiness.
Classic Silly. What can I say?
|And this one? A little dear caught in the headlights.|
