Bunch of years ago, FHP hadd an airplane circling over I95 here, clocking the traffic through lines painted on the roadway.  I had a scanner turned on at home and could hear them talking.

 One day, just as they started the FHP pilot told the troopers on the ground  that the objective for the day   was to target vehicles in the 5 to 10 mph over the limit. 

 At the end of the day, he came on the radio that they didn't stop a single vehicle in that range. Too many cars going much faster. 

 

LOL...I noticed that.  If you are not doing at least 80 in the 55 mile speed limit area...you will get run over in that area.  😮  Land of the lead foots!

We are about 2 hours from our hotel.  All is well.  I have enjoyed that I have not had to drive.

Our last time in Curacao was also 2019, in November on the Silhouette.  We did the ABC Islands.  It was so hot on that trip!

 

We were on the Nov 14th sailing, yes it was brutal hot but a very good cruise.  The last we were on unfortunately ☹, longest since we've been on a ship.  Maybe best year 🤞.

Last ride of the day at CA Adventure

 

Mater’s tracker ride.  The ride at HS with Aliens is based on this concept. You get tossed around quite a bit from side to side.

Motor oil corns…

Time to head back to the hotel after another hot long day at the park.  As before, we are not coming back after dinner. Done for the day.  Done with CA Adventure on this trip.  Tomorrow would be our last full day in Anaheim as we start looking homeward bound.

 

Take out dinner is Buca Di Beppo.  Huge portions.  I ordered family dinner for 5 people that we ended up eating for 2 nights and still had some leftover.

Our Buca Di Beppo not only closed, but the building torn down and replaced with an Ale House. Don’t know if that’s just a Florida chain, but it has a big menu and, to me, so-so food. We all miss Buca!

We saw Disneyland years ago from the road and were shocked at how everything else was so close. Being Floridians, we were used to DW being its  own isolated magical land. 
Walt Disney learned from experience and flew in small planes over orange groves snd swamps, mapped out what he wanted, and used various names to buy up the property. 
Nothing was going to be butted up against his new theme park. 
Where does CA fit in next to Disneyland? Can you walk from one to the other?

Is there room for expansion?

Is it sold as a separate theme park, or are there two park tickets?

Call me curious!

We got home last night from a week in the much cooler North Carolina mountains.
I need the cleansing effect of the mountains, especially when I can’t get the same effect by cruising. 
I26 from there to I95 was nice, no crazies. Sure enough, we get on 95 and there are the super speeders, the weavers, the tailgaters, everything you could ask for if you need a little stress. 
We saw marked and unmarked police cars on the side of the road with their captives. 
Evidently their presence still makes no difference. We did a steady 75 most of the time, and people flew past us like we were standing still.

I’m used to it, because 95 runs through Jax and I’m on it all the time, but it irritated the heck out of  Dick. He decided to ratchet it up to 80, and still they flew by. I told him might as well slow down again, because at 80, the cops could catch up to us and pull us over…easy target. 

I talked him into stopping at our favorite neighborhood Chinese take out for some comfort food, and enjoying that before unpacking soothed his large lump of irritability.

Speaking of speeding, once we were vacationing in Jamaica and the resort sent a driver to pick us up at the airport.  It was about 30-45 minutes drive to the resort.  Our driver, Rupert (will never forget!), drove like a bat out of hell!!  I was terrified.  Finally I saw a police car up ahead and thought, “Whew!  Now he’ll have to slow down!”  He flew past the police car …passing him on a two lane road!!!

Dani, I have no idea. I just remember being told when I received my draft card with my selective service classification of Class 1-S and registration number (26), I was to carry it at all times or if I destroyed it (burning) I would be arrested. The real bummer was when I graduated from high school my classification changed to Class1-A!  

Dave:There is a documentary on Netflix :Count Me In about great drummers.I did not see it but I heard that it is really good.

In 1973 we were on a cruise and went off on our own,looked at my watch and saw that the cruise was due to leave in 45 minutes and we were more than an hour away from the port.We decided to hitch hike .A guy picked us up and he was driving unbelievably fast.He got us back to the port on time.In those days there were newspapers available to the passengers.We picked up a paper the next day and saw the face of the guy who drove us.

He was a suspect in a serious crime.That was the last time we hitch hiked.

Yes,I posted a few days ago that there was an online story listing the 150 best drummers of all time .Watts was not that high on the list and they omitted some very dood drummers.

A list I'll never make. 😁  I have my favorites but in my opinion, each drummer is great in their own style and the music genre they play to.

I remember the last I hitchhiked was 1981 I was 15 and me and 2 other girlfriends got in a car with 2 guys that were probably 18 or 19 yrs old.  They were really skittzzy, we figured high on whatever.  We were headed to a large local carnival and when the guys saw up ahead there were cops directing traffic they pulled over, hollered at us to get out now and they spun around did a turn and flew off.  

A day or 2 later we saw them on local news, they had robbed a 7.11 at gun point.  Dont know if they caught them, but never did that again.

Couldn't agree more. Though when I started out playing as a kid. I idolized Buddy Rich. Most professional drummers today will say he is the greatest of all time even though guys like Dave Weckl and Gavin Harrison have much more technique. Every professional drummer has their own style and technique to be respected and admired.

 

Here is a new guy on the block that has amazing left hand skills. Stewart Copeland loves this guy. Check him out.
