Three Toilets

This amusement park has been around forever.

When I was a little kid, my parents took their sixth-grade Sunday School class there. One of the kids threw up on a ride. That’s practically my only memory of the place.

I drive by there every couple of years, and this time I saw three portable toilets. Not that they made me think of throw-up kid or anything like that.

Joyland Amusement Park tells you it’s “where the fun is.” I mention it only because I thought some of you might have wondered where, exactly, the fun was and now you know. The only thing is that the place is closed down for the winter. Does that mean there’s no fun anywhere until March 2013, when it reopens?
