Still a kid at heart

I've always loved roller coasters and amusement parks, and I doubt that will change. I imagine being 70 years old and still going on the rides, lol!
On Thursday a friend and I  went to Canada's Wonderland . What a pleasant surprise to find hardly any lineups, the longest may have been about half an hour. We went on the most thrilling rides, including Canada's fastest and tallest roller coaster. I even talked her into going on the antique carousel.I 'm sure we fit in very nicely with all the little children riding it, haha!

It was a long day, and I was so exhausted that I forgot I had wanted to play one of the games, in hopes of winning a stuffed toy.
I almost forgot to mention, I got pooped on twice by birds!! On my nice black pants!I noticed the first one when we were about to go on one of the rides...then a bit later sitting outside enjoying an ice cream, something splattered on my knee. You can see it in this photo, lol! I'm smiling because I have no idea I am walking around like this.

Don't they say it's good luck if a bird poops on you? Well I don't know if that's true or not, but later on, when we headed to the nearest mall for some quick shopping, I bought myself a lottery ticket, just in case....

Here I am, cleaned up, holding my Starbucks coffee in front of a pet store in the mall, carrying a bag from an artstore. My two addictions at the same time, life doesn't get better than this. (the expression on my face is my 'hurry up and take the picture people are looking ' face).

How weird is this, as I was finishing this post, a chickadee flew into my window, I saw it fly back into the tree and ran to the window to make sure he was ok. He seemed fine, the poor little thing! But now I'm thinking, what is it with birds and me these days??

Sounds like a great time! The lines are what make me want to stay away from the amusement parks here in the states. Glad you had such a fun time, and let us know when that lotto ticket wins ~ that much bird attention, you must be very lucky right now :-)

Wonderland is lots of fun, but I stay away from the rollercoasters! LOL

I don't think I have ever seen you before, Betty. I had no idea you were so young and beautiful. I thought you were an oldie but goodie like myself. Such fun knowing what you look like. :)

Carole I'm not exactly young, lol!
I'm in my 40's....oops! I let the cat out of the bag, haha!


Sandy Michelle said...

You're soo cute and YES it is good luck to be pooped on by a bird! Did you check your ticket for the 95 million? My neighbours went to CW today and they said it was humid and packed!

I can't wait to meet you!

Betty - Wow it is nice to see what you look like! I always picture you with a fairy / mermaid face as that is usually your avatar! LOL

I love rides too but you could not pay me to go on the rollercoasters or any of the scary ones! I LOVE the swings though! And years ago I loved those boats that swing, high then the other side high! Haven't been on one in years! I used to sit at the top seat! LOL

Oh no, birds, glad you got home ok with no more droppings! lol

Marlene said...

Sounds like you had a fun day! I love seeing you, you look much younger than you are. I used to love amusement parks, these days my stomach can't take them.

Wow, pooped on twice how rare is this? We say in uk if this happens your lucky so buy a lottery ticket.
Think it is a way of cheering things up.
Lovely to see you on your photos, how slim and beautiful your are. I think the birds where put back by your beauty and even want to be with you through the other side of your glass window!
My mouth is getting tight now the stitches and everything is healing. I'm am plodding on happily and fully looking to a different outcome in my life. I want to live to be an old healthy lady.
I have a better girl for my eating habits. Want this to last.
Want to be almost sugar free.
I've been watching some video's on business's making money of of cancer patients and its awful.
Saw that a drink with a pinch of salt, distilled water and lemon can clean up the body and fight against even cure cancer's.
I haven't got cancer, thank goodness. I have two lemons and going to do this. To clean my body of its toxins.
Here's to a great weeks!

NatashaMay said...

This looks fun! I haven't been on a roller coaster for ages and I love them. Love the bird poop story. :))) I have no idea how you land poop on the leg though. :)) Still better that on the head, right?! :)))

Sue said...

Hi Betty....yep, first the earthquake and now a tornado watch!

Definitely a "hump" day LOL

Stay safe!

Hi doll,

Thanks for the giggles with this charming post. I think the birds must have a message for you even if they can only say it with poop. (tee hee ;)

Pet stores and art stores sound like a winning combination and two of my favorite places as well. Thank you so much for your kind words and visits especially when my kitty died. :)

Sending you hugs and fairy blessings for a beautiful week.

I had never heard of wonderland. i love that first photo, looks like fun. Sorry about all the good luck poop. Perhaps the next wee bird will perch on your knee and sing you a lovely song.
