Well, had promised my shooting buddy a trip to the King's Dominion park before the end of summer- she is one of my grandaughters- age 12, going on 27. Dates we had set got rained out, but today the remains of the tropical storm had blown out, so away we went.
If I decide to do something like this again, would one of you kind gents please whack me with a ball bat, or gently pop me with a taser?
Kid shows great promise- have not decided if the promise is being a serial killer or a test pilot. She wanted to ride EVERY roller coaster in the park. Park has a numerical rating system for the rides, 1-5, with 5 being rated to make an Apache gunship pilot airsick. We started with the Rebel Yell, worked our way thru the Grizzly, Hurly, Anaconda, Dominator, etc etc etc- and worked our way DOWN to the Scooby Doo coaster.
She has a huge grin on her face, loved every minute of every ride. I will have a huge grin on MY face as soon as the Vicodin kicks in. Lord, last time I hurt this bad, my chute failed to collapse after landing, and the wind dragged me over a small cliff.
