Of fireplaces, bridge closings and Doombuggies~~~

Well Darklings,

I'm at work but taking a little break.

They are closing the San Francisco Bay Bridge starting at 8 p.m. tonight through Sept 3, and opening the new Span with some fanfare.   The last car to go across tonight will be a 1932 model A car and it will also be the first one to go across the new bridge.  It seems that this was the first car to go across the old span when it first opened.  I love history, and so nice that it will be that old car repeating history.

But getting to work for the next few days will be a bear, It will be either the Ferry or BART, I think I'll take the Ferry its more relaxing and some what glamourous.   Doyle and Sis are making sure their appointments will be on the Oakland side of the bridge for the next 5 days.  Good thing we don't have any plans to be in S.F.

My formal parlour fireplace will be finished next week, it will take longer than a few hours to do the repairs and the screening, we need to also do it to the other chimney as well as a precaution, other than that the fireplaces are fine and will be ready to go.

I'll be working a bit late tonight, so Sis will prepare dinner.

One of my co-workers told me of a web site called DoomBuggies, it is dedicated to the Disneyland attraction the Haunted House both in Disneyland, Disneyworld and the Eurpean Disneylands, espeically the one in France where its called Phantom Manor.

The Haunted House ride has been always my favorite ride, last time I was there I rode it 5 times, just could not get enough of it.  I'll have to go back, the Pirates ride came close, and dinning in the Blue Bayou, so much fun.  Makes me want to go to the real New Orleans, but not during Mardi Gra that's insane, perhaps take one or two of their speical tours, even if some of the place in New Orleans are just fake, but its the history of it, as well as the deeper dark history of it. 

Oh well, must get back to work.

Later Darklings

  1. I LOVE the Haunted Mansion ride. I have only been on the one in Walt Disney World, but oh how I love it. It is like home away from home:)

    New Orleans...The Husband and I took a 2nd honeymoon of sorts there 3 years ago. He grew up in Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi which is in the area so he was excited to go back. It was my first trip there and we did 3 of the special tours, voodoo, vampire, witches. All were great fun, the vampire one only takes place after dark...creeptastic!

    I hope the bridge closing goes, if not smoothly for you then at least the time passes quickly.
