KIDS CALLED AND WANTED US TO GO TO 
LAKE WINNIE (FOR SHORT) AMUSEMENT PARK.
YES, OF COURSE, WE DID GO!  I AM GLAD
WE DID BECAUSE IT WAS SO MUCH FUN. 
THE AMUSEMENT PARK BROUGHT BACK
SO MANY MEMORIES OF AN AMUSEMENT
PARK OF YESTER-YEARS... JOY LAND IN
WICHITA, KANSAS.  MY OLDER SISTER AND
I WOULD WALK TO THIS PARK FROM MY DAD'S
HOME ON MINNESOTA AVENUE, JUST A SHORT
DISTANCE AWAY.  WE WOULD LAUGH AND
LAUGH AND LAUGH (MOSTLY AT OUR OWN
SELVES...SO MUCH FUN.  I WAS FOURTEEN
AND MY SISTER WAS SIXTEEN). WE AND THE
KIDS, ALL OF US, DID THE SAME... WE LAUGHED
AND LAUGHED MOSTLY AT OUR OWN SELVES.

YOU TALK ABOUT THE TWILIGHT ZONE.  I
WENT AGAIN TO ANOTHER PLACE I HAD
NEVER BEEN BEFORE.  GUESS WHAT I MADE
ANOTHER DEAL... I RIDE THE OZONE AND MY
SON GOES TO OUR INDIAN FESTIVAL!! A DEAL
IS A DEAL AND I VENTURED OUTSIDE MYSELF
INTO THAT TWILIGHT ZONE UNTIL THE
REALIZATION THAT THE RIDE I JUST RODE WAS
OVER BEFORE REALITY SET BACK IN. TRULY
AMAZING, I MUST ADMIT.

THE BEST PART OF THE TRIP WAS TO SEE THE
SMILES ON ALL OF OUR FACES.  HUBBY RODE
THE ROLLER COASTER WHEN HE WOULD NOT
RIDE SOME OF THE OTHERS... HE LOVES THE
ROLLER COASTER BUT HATES THE TILT-A-WHIRL.
OUR  LITTLE FIVE YEAR OLD SWEETHEART RODE
THE OZONE TWICE BUT THE PARK WOULD NOT
LET HER RIDE THE ROLLER COASTER.  MOMMIE
HAD  THE LOOK OF AMAZEMENT ON HER FACE
WHILE WATCHING THEM BOTH RIDE AND THAT
LOOK OF THE RELIEF WHEN LITTLE BIT WAS SAFE
ON THE GROUND. MY SON COULD NOT BELIEVE
THAT I  RODE. THE OZONE, TWICE!  I TOLD A 
FRIEND, "IT WAS FOR SURE THAT I KNEW I WAS
ALIVE WHEN EVERYTHING WITHIN ME WAS
SCREAMING INSIDE!!" 

THE KIDS AND US AGREED THAT GOING TO THIS
AMUSEMENT PARK BROUGHT BACK EVERYONE
OF US SOME CHILDHOOD MEMORIES.  THANK YOU
FATHER FOR PUTTING UP WITH US AND LOVING US
ENOUGH TO ANSWER OUR PRAYERS FOR SAFETY! 
WHAT A GREAT AND FUN TIME OF MAKING NEW
MEMORIES THIS DAY.
