  1. Jumped off the water ride! That must have been a sight to see. My cousin once watched people being evacuated off a tall roller coaster at Darien Lake via a ladder because it got stuck at the top of a drop. Nice to meet you!

  2. I’m tall also I am about 5’10 1/2 🙂 I have the worse time find pants long enough. I was obsessed with the Spice Girls when I was younger my friends and I had dances choreographed to all of their songs and new the movie word for word

  3. I didn’t know you were a car seat tech (did I?)!? Tall girls must blog. I’m just shy of 5’10”- same as you and Rita. I was a big LHotPrairie fan as a kiddo, too. And my spelling stinks. I’d look a whole lot dumber if it wasn’t for web browsers that auto-spellcheck.
