Did I miss something? What's not coming back to the Cowboy Fest?

As far as craftsman, I know a few who've left.  One of the reasons is because they aren't allowed to do their craft, but must meet a quota of pushing out craft crap instead of real craftsmanship.

I gotta say, I went last year to see Dizzy the DJ and hear Sequel Dose. Actually, not quite true; I went to the park that day and stumbled on Dance Party walking out.  We hung around a bit to let the crowd of those leaving die down, and it just got better and better. Dizzy was off work at nine, but announced he was having so much fun, he was going to stick around. I didn't think I'd care for it, but I loved it! Sequel Dose is tremendous, IMO, and Dizzy had everyone involved between the ages of one and 80 dancing.  A little loud, but fun! Out of theme, YES, but it was after hours, and families were having a blast.

There was a conference on the news today featuring the Coleman family and a team of lawyers announcing a second lawsuit filed by the Colemans. This lawsuit covers two more of their family members.  If an amount was mentioned, I missed it.

I was by there several times 3 weekends ago and at 9 or 10 at night it was a virtual ghost town. I never saw 1 ride operating. Location is /was terrible that far east on the strip. It just looked like any other carnival you see set up in a mall parking lot with the exception of the small coasters. In Contrast the mountain coaster had a line 50 people deep most of those nights. Carnival rides are just not that appealing to me.

From the road, I thought it was rather nice looking; so much more than I expected it to be.

All I can say is that I arrived at the IMAX at 6:15 with clear, sunny skies.  My hubs commented that there was cloud cover to the north over Springfield when we were talking about hoping it would rain.  At 6:33 I got a weather text alert on my phone and was surprised to see it. At 6:48 we were looking at a radar that showed a heavy line of storms moving in. I believe at 7:03 the boat sunk.  It happened that fast! It's a tragic, tragic event that breaks my heart thinking of the pain families are dealing with.

I have an SDC/FITH mix ringtone in .mp3 format. Send me your email so that I can return it as an attachment.

I'll send you mine!  I used to have it in mp3, but I can't find it.  Possibly, it's on my old nano somewhere.

I wonder though if the removal of the guns isn't political based, but based on people's entitlement?

I grew up with guns, cap guns, rifles, pistols, etc. guns were in the house. My kids have grown up with guns, but still have a very high respect for them. But even with having the guns in the house, my children wouldn't ride the train for a long time because they really thought the guns being used in the show were a real danger. No matter how much I told them "all was well", it was just a show, they didn't we just skipped the ride.

I never complained to anyone that my child wouldn't ride the train - we just skipped the ride. But I think more people feel that they have a right to do something, and if something doesn't go their way, they want change. So if their child is scared or not getting to enjoy something others are doing because of a fear (or any other reason).....they let the park know about it.

So I wonder, if it's more about people's entitlement than political? Where I would say, suck it up buttercup to my kid....others tell the kid don't worry, we'll get this changed so you don't have to be afraid.....


That's a good thought that I had not considered before.
