I'm Old Enough To Remember This




And you would catch air.

I remember that slide. And I remember cutting my hand when I grabbed the side trying to not catch so much air. Good times.

I remember that summer. That's when I got my first real six string.

I'm old enough to remember it and I'm 50, aren't you slightly older? It was still there in the early 70's.

I loved that slide. I'd still go on it today and I'm 52.

Cross Keys Restaurant - a happening place behind the demolished building. And Irish nurses.

And the Rotoriculous by the bumper cars. They played "Slow Ride" by Foghat on a continuous loop and it had air conditioning!

Love reading comments posted on the wrong blog entry. Really sways me to believe the commenters don't know WTF they're talking about if they can't even figure out how to post.

HINT: The comment section is at the bottom of the posts, idiots.

Similar slides and possibly identical slides were found elsewhere in Tarrant County. I'm almost certain there was one at Seminary South shopping center and I'm absolutely certain there was one at Jacksboro Hwy & Ephriham Ave. A lot of people still think that Ephriham is 28th Street. 28th doesn't begin until Azle Ave

Lions Park in Waco was better.

I remember how refreshingly cool it was inside the Spelunkers Cave on a hot summer afternoon, even though the little robotic spelunkers were sorta creepy. And Pink Things melted faster than you could eat them. And the Log Ride smelled like wood and creosote. And the Southern Belles in hoop skirts made my boy parts feel funny. Good memories.

THE SLIDE, when kids exercise & good time for all. Put a dime in the scope on top of the tower & see all of small Arlington.

I'm concerned about polar bears. And bird flu. Maybe extraterrestrials too.

Do you think Obama was in on the FBI fraud at the FISA courts? Me too.

I think we'll have a mild summer, but if the humidity stays high there could still be a lot of mosquitoes. That's usually good for the finch and bat populations, but can take some of the fun out of summer vacation.

Six Flags and I are the same age. Once I became a parent, I asked my mother what to do when my kid got invited over to someone's house where I didn't want to let them go. She said, "Do you really think I wanted to go to Six Flags that often?" She and I did go several times a year and it was always great fun. Especially when MYF went. I loved this big slide. We would race down. You lose speed when you take air so we tried to fight that but we could certainly go fast.

Rage; I spent my youth biking through Lions Park and drinking at the Lion Mouth. Damn sure wouldn't have let my kid do that... Different times.
