What a week
Here stands the largest wooden roller coaster in the world, the Texas Giant. Because it's made of wood, the entire structure shakes and rattles as you fly across it, giving the illusion of collapse and egging on your fears of death. I first rode this when I was 12, with my sister who was 16 at the time. When the safety bar came down to secure us in our seats, there was a very large gap between my skinny frame and that padded metal bar. My sister held me down for the full 5-minute ride as we screamed our heads off and were thrown about the cart. I loved it.

My apologies for being totally awol for the last week. I got hit, or should I say knocked over the head, with a case of bronchitis, and I am just now emerging from the weight of it. Lots of sorting through papers and catching up on e-mails and orders now.

This Is A Great Picture And I Was Wondering If I Could Use It On My Website For A Day Or Two.
