Writing Prompt #83: “52 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge” (Week 45)

Week #45: What You Do For Fun.

I could go on for a long time about what I like to do for fun.


June 2017 – Al took this photo before we hopped on. We love riding around our neighborhood – Very safe and quiet. We certainly work up a good sweat! The only change we’ll make is better bike seats!

I’m grateful that I’m physically able to ride my bike and play softball. Al just bought lights for our bikes so we can ride them in the evenings – Yay! I would love to get back into softball – I played on a church team several years ago, and I miss it!

In the same vein, I love visiting different amusement parks. Roller coasters are the best! I’m glad that I’m able to ride them. They definitely make my heart race and my voice hoarse. I’ve been fortunate to have been to Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Kings Dominion multiple times, along with Water Country USA. As a kid, I went to several in California, Florida, and Pennsylvania.

One of my big goals is to visit Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. So many coasters! I also like the water rides. Plus, it’s a great way to spend time with friends and family.

Big Fish Games

I also enjoy playing games on my phone, iPad, and computer. Right now, I like several different match-3 games, but I also want to get all the Roller Coaster Tycoon and Carmen Sandiego games for my PC again. Those bring back so many childhood memories!

Traveling is another fun thing. We’re saving money for New York City right now!

Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂

  1. Oh wow. Do you remember for a short time that show, “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?” I still hum it when I say it! I loved that. And roller coaster tycoon! That brings back memories! That was a fun computer game. 😀

    • Definitely! I have vague memories of watching it on TV as a kid. I do remember watching most of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego in 1996 and 1997. Almost all the episodes of both shows are on YouTube! I spent hours playing Roller Coaster Tycoon – It drove my mom nuts. She had to kick me off the computer and marched me outside.

  2. I love rollercoaster rides!! I get all giddy and excited! And “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiago” was my jam!!! I was addicted to that computer game!
