Disney Monorail Accident

It was very disturbing to hear about the Monorail crash that happened today at Magic Kingdom. I live three hours away from Disney so we visit very often. We had taken our youngest grandson there in 2007 for his first visit to see Mickey Mouse. One of the highlights was to ride in the front of the monorail with the driver. I think it meant more to the adults than it did to him.

This accident will probably put an end to the thrill of Disney visitors riding up front anymore. Before my daughter moved to Michigan, they had taken my granddaughter Nicole and she was lucky to have the chance to ride up front. While my other grandson Andrew has not been there yet, he will hopefully have the chance when he visits there next year. We're looking forward to our family reunion at Disney World in 2010.

I hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th of July holiday.

Now it's time to get back to my primitive projects. I'm working on a wall hanging for the living room. Still have plans to make the bowl rack but that will probably have to wait until after my vacation in Michigan.

I guess I need to turn the news on because I didn't hear about that. I'm only a little over an hour away from Disney and we love to ride the monorail too! Hopefully, this will never happen again. I guess now we'll be taking the ferry both ways.

Have a great day!

I didn't hear about this accident either, was anyone hurt? Why did it happen? We have a monorail here in Seattle, but it has never crashed that I know of. We are hoping to visit Disney World next summer 2010.
Love your blog!
