I said that time may change me

Not feeling good. Might be post-burnout stress. Might be actual sickness. I do figure to get a Covid-19 test when I feel up to going to Rite-Aid for it, but I think it's most likely that I finally hit my limits, with the next-most-likely possibility that I got a regular ordinary-grade cold. So in the meanwhile here's Michigan's Adventure pictures I haven't shared yet.


Thunderhawk's entrance. Every year I think they've changed it somehow (this year it was the stone pillars I thought were new) and every year they have not.


Our bag of caramel corn with the teasingly over-precise nutritional information. What does this figure even mean? Nothing, that's what.


Walking back past the Zach's Zoomer-adjacent entrance to Camp Snoopy.


Corkscrew, going around its first corkscrew loop. Note that the track changes color for the inversion, something it's kept through a couple of paint jobs.


Dodgem would be the last ride we got on for the day.


My bumper car which was, yes, the one with the license plate AUSTIN.

Trivia: The French sabotaged the television transmitter at the Eiffel Tower as the Germans overran the city in 1940. It would not be functional again until 1943. Source: Please Stand By: A Prehistory of Television, Michael Ritchie.

Currently Reading: The Complete Peanuts, 1999 - 2000, Charles Schulz. Editor Gary Groth.
