Maybe we can be rid of these strange little eggs in and on the banks of the lake.
I've not yet discovered the creature that lays these garish treasures.


From the species with  the Latin name Badaimitrons. They do not reproduce unless they are fertilized with a touch from a wax hand.



Wow.  This is new information to me...and it makes me wary of getting one of those wax hands!

I wonder if the Badaimitrons are endangered and nearing extinction due to the municipal encroachment that threatens the elimination of their garish habitat.

Keep in mind that after fertilization, the garish color begins to fade and they grow to basketball size proportion and can be seen bouncing around the grounds.

^^In that case, extinction must occur ASAP.

Found the following link...#12 talks about SDC, #9 talks about the Iron Colossus rebuild by Rocky Mountain Construction (makers of Outlaw Run)...anyway, I know all this is probably old news, especially to Swoosh, but thought I'd share it anyway.

 ;D :-*  lol


In other news -- can someone get out to the park soon?  I hear that there are markings of some sort in the construction area that may or may not be the lines of the buildings in the area.  I am tied down with Band Camp the rest of the month so cannot go do it myself.

Thanks

Yeah because I've never heard that one before.  It's part of being a band director

Posting the announcement page link here.

http://www.silverdollarcity.com/five-alarm-announcement.aspx?icid=5alarm-hp-hero-5

It actually got me excited to see the neat photo they're using for the announcement page. Lots of cool looking stuff from the 1880's that the park has only begun to explore. I'm really excited for this announcement and still think SDC could very well knock this out of the park despite our doubts.

You're right Shave, they did get the photo correct and it gives more hope.  Let's hope the real thing is as genuine!
Small wonder our lives have so little of God in them, when we come in touch with so little that God has made.

Was in Branson this week for a softball tournament and spent a few days at the City. Today was packed and floods of people were coming in at 3:00 as we were leaving. Lots of great deals after 7:00...but we had to get back home.

Anyway, took some photos of the project site.....and video from the train too (http://youtu.be/LPK_c20gKg4). Here are the pictures:

Hopefully, they'll have a big ol' pot of some good, hot chili!
