postcard returned

From Schmidt & Weston blog

From Schmidt & Weston blog

This is the first postcard I've received as a result of my postcard project. It is from Erin of the Oh Honestly Erin blog, which is very good and worthy of your attention.

Carrie has always wanted to go to Dolly Wood. I am not a huge fan of amusement parks, which I know would disappoint Erin. I've just never liked rides. Partly this is due to my father not liking them, despite being more than willing (as I am) to jump out of an airplane or jump into an aerobatic plane. Something about rickety roller coasters run by carnies gives me the willies. 

Also, when I was about 10 or so, I lived in the shadow of West Edmonton Mall and remember the Mind Bender roller coaster disaster. 3 dead kids solidified a healthy fear of rides.

But I do like birds, other than parrots which are pretty, but terribly annoying and not at all pleasant.

Thanks for the postcard Erin.

  1. Damn, I should have just sent you one of the Smokies like I was originally going to! I'm sorry for dredging up bad feelings. I would have been scarred for life too if there was an accident at our local amusement park when I was growing up, so I can totally understand.

    I really enjoyed your postcard, though. Thanks! The photo was amazing!



Thank you for visiting. I live in Vancouver now, but I've lived in other places too. I take photos and make short films about things and people. Please comment and be argumentative. It amuses me.
