And I'm always gonna stay here if I live to be ninety-nine

bunny_hugger and I had, for Sunday, tickets including early admission to Cedar Point, so that we could go in an hour before the proper opening time. There wasn't much chance we would use it. On Sunday the park opens on something like normal summer operating hours, and the chance of our getting up to enter the park by nine or ten am or whatever it would be was ... not optimistic. We're not morning people. We were doing pretty well to get up in time for check-out, which we took seriously and rather literally since the park and hotel would be closed for the week.

The park was still alive, and brilliantly lit, and active, as we drove off the long way back to bunny_hugger's home.

Trivia: Warren G Harding had intended to take an extended tour of the Alaska Territory during the summers of 1921 and 1922, both tours called off on short notice. (He finally made the tour in 1923, and on returning from it died.) Source: The Teapot Dome Scandal: How Big Oil Bought The Harding White House And Tried To Steal The Country, Laton McCartney.
