Checkin' in..

O-Town is in the news!
Perhaps you've heard.The new overpass under construction collapsed yesterday.CNN covered it here.
The driver of the demolished FedEx truck escaped with a sprained ankle..A friggin' sprained ankle!..Holy crap.

A laborer working on the bridge,rode the debris down 50 feet,and sustained only minor injuries.
Governor Schwartzenegger was heard to exclaim,"The bridge is out!".."The BRIDGE is OUT!!..Jamie Lee Curtis was unavailable for comment.






****In other news****


The O-town Arson squad has a shiny new Command post...




Here it is,parked behind our humble cabinet shop.
The K's have donated a nice Oak desk to help our fine Firefighters do their jobs.It seems as though,like Chicago,some part of O-Town is always burning.

...It's a work in progress.

Collapsing freeways,and heinous acts of arson aside,there is still much to
entice tourists to our little village.
When in O-Town,be sure to visit Stan and Eunice DeSade's "Midway of Fun!"...Bring the kids.

Unbridled excitement. For a moment I thought I was reading the O-town Chamber of Commerce website.

citymouse-You know,I think the Feds probably are on it.OSHA is all over the one here in town.

Of course, I'll sound like a big fat liar, but I really did - no, REALLLLY - think/wonder if you were somewhere near there. It's part of the 'I live in California but have never heard of HALF the places so I love Huell Howser on patrol' disease I suffer.

Unfortunately, your bridge got trumped by the bridge in Minneapolis because - well, because that's where we're really sort of from and there was waaaayy more mayhem and shit.

Holy smokes Sling-man. Two bridges in 1 day? That smacks of Riddler and the London Bridges episode. (Okay, yes, I am that old--knock it off!) Heads are going to be rolling soon on that blooper.

And that is a groovy fire-fighting work station all shiny and red with new oak desk inside. Way to go in O-Town! That's the spirit.

Midway here we come. We'll bring the taters.

The DeSades house of fun, eh... yeah...that place looks safe and non tortursome... for the kids? haha

 
At 9:51 AM , Blogger Lorraine said...

Yeah, see, I got the whole 2 bridges in one day thing, too. What are the odds?

Although, assuming it were somethng nefarious and not just dumb bad luck, I must wonder what the terrorists want with O-Town.

Oh, wait. The cabinets and rice pudding. Sure.

Wow. Horrible coincidence, that. (i hope it is coincidence.)

Love the last pic -- reminds me of Joni's "Song About the Midway".

Is it wrong for me to hope that the crackhead who stole your bike was riding on that bridge when it fell?

Yeah, probably.

 
At 1:03 PM , Blogger Auld Hat said...

oh, everyone already said the good stuff. Glad you weren't on the bridge yada yada...

rube-That would be totally cool!Blastin' Aretha the whole way..R.E.S.P.E.C.T!

Booda babe-Whenever we want to go "Big shopping",we travel that very road to Chico.We drove under that bridge on Sunday,prior to the collapse.Really.

cs-The Riddler??..That must be before my time.. ;P

monica-I tripped on that sign while I was headed over to take pix of the Smashed FedEx truck,which is sitting not 3 blocks from where I work."No Trespassing" though..dammit.Anywhiz,I thought it was a little odd.

lorraine-..and don't forget we are home to "The world's largest ball of mud"..Prime target that..

cowbelle-now I gotta go find that song..Joni Mitchell,right?

JP-It's not wrong at all my friend..god told me he want's that crackhead to have a bridge fall on him...Not really,..but still.

Nick-Nack Paddywhack,give a dog a HAT!-..I just made that up! :)

Man, in light of recent events, this post is eerie...

 
At 5:57 PM , Blogger Sling said...

allaan-no one was killed in the collapse here in O-Town..an absolute miracle!..Hence my making light of it.
So naturally.my smartassed-ness is followed by a genuine tragedy...Point taken Lord..

 
At 7:44 PM , Blogger yellowdog granny said...

dang..everyone i know lives in a town where the bridges fall down..heidi, you in oroville.dang..glad everyone is ok..

 
At 7:49 PM , Blogger Sling said...

Yellowdog-Everyone seems to think that there is some kind of covert terrorist activity involved.
Personnally,I blame gravity..It's a killer.

I wanna know where the Midway of Fun is....I have a few folks I'd like to put on that ride! What's it called The Frier?

 
At 4:24 PM , Blogger gina said...

Seriously, I want to play on the Midway of Fun.

And everyone else has already said "wow, 2 bridges in 1 day", so I won't say it again.

Wow, your bridge fell down. On a FedEx truck. Weird. (how was that for different?)

 
At 5:24 PM , Blogger cs said...

Okay Mr. Before My Time, it's Friday. Did the bridge ordeal stop time down there? Did someone hi-jack you from your new set of wheels?

Blog on mister....

mizz impatient...

Rosemary-The Midway of Fun is right here in O-Town,directly across from my old Alma Mater,the Rutherford P. Warzniak Manual Arts and Trade School.
..it is forbidden to speak the name of the ride.

gina-I'm glad someone noted the significance of the demolished FedEx truck.My shipment of Columbian "coffee" seems to have been delayed.

cs-No,the bridge collapse didn't stop time.
It's been 1885 here in O-Town for as long as anyone can remember.

Midway of Fun. Sounds like my kind of place. I like to go about half-way to fun. Having total fun is so Philistine.

 
At 5:16 PM , Blogger CS said...

Wonder if Schwartzenegger (too lazy to check the spelling of that) was disappointed not to get some Minnesota ridge-tyle excitement?
