Officially My Vacation!

Thanks for all your comments on my last post. I spent the day thinking of things I could have or should have said to him, but to tell the truth..I'm kind of scared to say too much. I really think this guy has a screw loose...and I don't want to be the first one he comes after if he decided he's had enough of every ones incompetence and shows up with a gun some day, you know? Maybe I'm being paranoid, but it's a crazy world out there!

Well, today is the first day of my vacation. I have my friend, Marie's daughter's wedding shower to go to today. Plus I need to clean my house and finish the laundry because tomorrow we are heading out on a little road trip to Atlantic City for a few days and then to Niagara Falls, New York for a day or too. I love road trips! We have never been to Atlantic City and I am looking forward to the boardwalk and spending some quality time at the ocean! Then on the way home instead of going the same way back through Pennsylvania, we are going north to Niagara Falls, and coming home through Canada and the thumb area of Michigan. In a circle like this:



Well, more like a half-circle!

Last Sunday we took a ride to an area in Michigan called the Irish Hills. My father's aunt used to have a cottage on a nearby lake and we went there a lot when I was a kid. One of the places I remember going to was the Prehistoric Forest Amusement park.



You could ride through the forest and there would be cement dinosaurs with the sounds of roaring coming from hidden speakers in the trees and bushes. I remember loving it but being a little scared too, especially by this guy!



He doesn't look quite so intimidating anymore! Anyway, the place is closed and fenced off and there are No Trespassing signs all over. In fact, that whole area looks like a ghost town now. I think it is just a victim of the bad economy and the dying popularity of tacky roadside attractions! I personally still love that kind of stuff!

Maybe well find some other good tacky roadside attraction on our trip! I hope so.

See you from the road!

I hear you about that nutcase, and don't blame you a bit. I'd be doing the same thing; avoiding him!

List of things to say to wacko guy;

1. "Just because your OCD doesn't mean I have to be."
2. Put your hand on his shoulder & pat, smile & say, "Take a deep breath, just relax, it will really be alright." Always do this to him, when he gets freaked about something.
3. "I would have made more coffee, but I heard that someone sneezed right inside the can after they made this batch."
4.If he has not power I would act like I don't even hear him.
5. "My husband doesn't like me making coffee for other men"
6. "How would you like to be turned in for sexual harrassment?! Do you think only women should make the coffee buddy!? Get out of the 1950's!!"
7. "Shutup." Then walk out.
*. "Im concerned about you. You seem to get upset over the little things. That will lead to a heart attack. Let me give you the name of my therapist that helps me with my violent/anger issues."

* OK,...sorry...I'll stop....it was just too irrestible."
