"HOT AS HELL!!"
It was Hot as Hell at the beach, Coney Island, but we had a swell time anyway. Above, and below are a few snaps from the "Sydneyland" class trip to Coney Island on Saturday.
My dear pals Mr., and Mrs. Satan were there as was Nurse Pickles. The sweetheart just insists on keeping me alive,..go figure. Also not seen is our pal Ken a famous comix book artist.
We didn't do any of the rides. There was maybe a million folks running around loose, and most of them were clogging up the exhibits. A 90 minute waiting time for each thrilling ride,...bleep that.
We had a swell time anyway. The only downer is that I over did it, and got sunstroke or something like it. I kept meaning to go further down the Broadwalk, and get a straw hat.
So hanging out in direct sunlight while the summer solstice is only hours away was perhaps a tad unwise. Hey, not a problem I said. Wrong. Nurse Pickles insisted I use her parasol, but naw! I was a tuff guy!
I got nicely burnt up.
At about 5:30 I began to zone out, and get cranky like all the little kiddies. You take kids out, and they're fried by four or five, and start wetting them selves, and crying.
I was no different.
So I had to bid my comrades so long, and head home. Wow I fell asleep as soon as I got on the beloved "N" Train. I came too just before Pacific street,..a good thing since that's my stop.
So me, and my pals will do it again on my birthday. This time I'll finally ride the Cyclone, the that demented 100 foot off the ground hanging by a thin wire ride.
I'm told I shouldn't eat till 'after' I come down.
Btw, that red electric truck below was the emergency toilet paper van. It got a round of applause when it pulled up! Also there a couple of videos at the bottom of this post. ..sorry no naked people this year.
