Bumper cars & clocks & rain & stuff

I should have titled this "Random thoughts"

I spent a day running the bumper cars, part of the process is telling the riders that the direction to go is counterclockwise.  I wonder if the younger people know what counterclockwise is?

I saw three teenage girls texting in the bumper cars.  I'm sure that means something but I'm not really sure what!

We had a Washington state style rain day here in Iowa, light rain all day long. I'd forgotten what it was like for the rain to not stop... it did stop & it did it before July!  It reminded my of why I left Washington state.

Sitting here in an RV park while working at an amusement park gives me a different set of observations than I had while traveling (when I started this blog). Then again since I started the blog I've done more sitting & working than traveling .... Does this all mean anything? Na... I have just over an hour before I take the short walk to work and was thinking on paper.

A short walk to work is a good thing! I was going to give Amazon a try in Nevada but after getting reservations at an RV park 40 minutes away I had second thoughts.
For years I worked at a 10 hr shift at a warehouse 40 minutes away before & that was a long day. I asked myself "do I need a 14 hour work day again?", the answer was "no".
I didn't need it or want it so I contacted them and said "sorry"

It is nice to be able to do what you want to do rather than what you have to do. I did want to give Amazon a try so I'm going to Kentucky after I finish here at Adventureland.

Most of the houses around here have large yards, really large yards. This being spring the grass is growing, I was on my bike the other day and was noticing all the people cutting the grass.
From the little old lady on the ride around mower to the young guys loading mowers in the back of a minivan after cutting someone's grass there were mowers everywhere!  Several of the commercial zero turn mowers too.
A lot of grass & none of it mine!

Large yards with a lot of grass

Speaking of a bike, when you are using one as transportation you have to stop & think when you go shopping.

This was a touch too much for the bike basket

You can get large things on a bike with bungee cords

 We'll probably get a car of some sort next month.

  1. I'm beginning to hate my grass again. It never stops.
