Is the wish of Barney and Ben

If you have my humor blog on your Reading page, or if you added its RSS feed to whatever reader you prefer, then you have already seen these pieces of writing:

We're coming to the end of the day at Santa's Workshop! Watch for a special guest star.


More of the construction site for the Ferris Wheel; you can see the Snowflake Maze just a bit above it.


Sign which, taken literally, suggests that had we come a day or two later we might have been able to ride the Ferris Wheel.


I am mighty curious what problem this Loading Sequence sign solves.


The notice that everyone must be seated, seen here through the windows of some construction equipment, caused me to think this is a Ferris Wheel undergoing major renovation rather than being put up for the first time, but there's no way of telling, really.


Looking down from the vicinity of the Ferris Wheel; those Eyerly rides and the roller coaster are down past the green building somewhere. I don't know what that string of reindeer signs are for.


Sugarplum Stage, and snack stand, that doesn't see a lot of business today.


Oh, but here! It's snow! On the coldest day in June! ... Still well above freezing, though.


It's actually soap-bubble foam, which is part of why the steep and many-stepped pavement here is so wet. Intermittent showers are also some of the reason, and why these people are in plastic ponchos.


The snowfall is for Santa's House, which has got Santa sitting inside ready to see you, and to have a photo taken. The staff took a picture with bunny_hugger's camera of us.


Last ride: the miniature train station. It did not come into the station but you can see the C P Huntington engine there, and the train operator standing beside it.


Looking back at the train station as we get on the train.


Western grey squirrel who's hanging around because the train operator tosses them peanuts, like, all the time.

PS: Reading the Comics, February 21, 2020: February 21, 2020 Edition, one of those fun single-day editions, even if the strips in it are kind of slight ones.
