Golden memories

Hosting the Golden Ticket Awards was a blast. It was well over a year ago that we started bugging Amusement Today publisher Gary Slade that we wanted to host the Golden Ticket Awards again. Turns out he already had us in mind. (Surely it had nothing to do with him wanting to ride this new…

On the road again

Holidog at Graceland

He’s on the road again, our Holidog. You may remember he arrived in the mail just prior to Christmas and then whisked off to Florida for the colder months. Now he’s heading west. And apparently, he’s driving. A dog’s got to eat, right? So our little tourist made a point of chowing down at the…

Brown Dog’s Day

Excuse me – Brown Dog’s Day? This just in from our traveling friend, Holidog: French Creek Freddie, Shubenacadie Sam, Claude the Crawfish, and, of course, Punxsutawney Phil. All famous prognosticators. And now, after receiving my training through a Sally Struthers online course, I’m one too. In fact, I’m the world’s first dog-nosticator. I replaced Gator-nosed…

The Nina was the first ship that…

Start spreading the news …

Holidog’s voyage continues. The pup took advantage of our “weekends-only” schedule to visit a famous city. Woof! I do believe the Empire State Building is even taller than Liberty Launch! New York City was really big, but the only apples I saw were iPods. I’m not much of a math mutt, so Times Square did…

A catty email

When it comes to email, we receive all kinds. Most of them are remarkably nice. And thanks to Joe and our spam filter, the majority are clean. But once in a while, there’s a message that gives us pause. “dffff” Pardon me, what’s that? Dffff? What does that mean? Is it code? Or some of…

Lawdy, Miss Scarlett!

… we’ve been asked to add a “birthing room” to our park. Could you imagine? (All I can think about is that scene from Gone With the Wind.) Free unlimited boiling water? Holidog to pant along as your breathing coach? A miniature height-measurement stick to get the official length of your tiny bundle? Would it…

Holidog’s Voyage

Holidog’s voyage? I guess this shouldn’t surprise me. After all, my parking spot here at work is just a few spaces down from one marked “Santa Claus.” But … … I just received an email from Holidog Complete with pictures! Here’s some of the message: In celebration of our new themed area, I have decided…
