My Darling,

This is a very difficult letter for me to write. From our first moment
together, it seems we have had something special. Through ups and
downs, and all of the twists and turns, the excitement never faded.
Our wonderful days together, our wild nights - what we have had was
special, and I always thought it would last forever.

That is what makes this all the more difficult for me. Over the past
four days, my path has taken a 90 degree turn (several, in fact). At a
recent gathering, I was introduced to someone. Little did I realize
that this meeting would thrill me as even you never have. The highs
and lows I have experienced since then have changed me.

I'm sorry, my dear, but you no longer excite me as once you did. The
spark just isn't there anymore between us. It's nothing you've done
and nothing you haven't done. You have always given me everything I
needed. I guess it's just time for my heart to journey on. It's not
you, it's me. Seasons change, time flows on and I will always be
thankful for the time we had.

I hope that we can still be friends, and that I can stop by and visit
sometimes, but in all other ways, our ship has sailed. It's for the
best, my Raven beauty. My heart belongs to the Voyage now.

Have Fun

Paul

Awww, Artchick, Aunt Rose and myself all thought you all would get a
laugh out of it.

It was hard riding my ex-#1 coaster this weekend because The Voyage is
just that good. The Raven was running in top form (42 second range)
but it still felt hollow after The Voyage.

Disconnect from computer.
Rinse thoroughly with distilled water.
Spray with disinfectant.
Drain as much as possible.
Allow to air-dry completely before reconnecting. If you are lucky, none
of the keys will stick or fail. If you are unlucky, then you should
invest in a new keyboard.

(Not that I've ever had to clean THAT out of a keyboard, but it works on
such things as coffee, cola, and soup...)

Thanks, Paula...uhm...I think...errrr!

Regarding the keyboard, just sue Drabek for the cost, and definitely add
in damages for all the pain and suffering... ;-)

And incidentally, huge congrats and best of luck for the new season!
Can't wait to fill out another customer satisfaction card in a few
weeks...tee hee.

You need help Paul. You wrote to a coaster like it is your wife or
something. You are a strange puppy indeed.

It really blows my mind as to how many people here have no sense of
humor even when I'm poking fun at myself.

Have Fun, really.

For what it's worth - I thoroughly enjoyed your "letter". My workmates
probably thought I was going even more crazy as I chuckled out loud.

Dave, that's good to know. From the sounds of things a lot of
enthusiasts are making a mess of their keyboards with Voyage POV
showing.

Hehe, funny post Paul!

Sometimes it's hard to accept the facts when your once all time favorite
coaster has been knocked down a notch or two. I've felt the same way a
few times over the years.

Its more than a notch or two. The Raven and Legend feel like kiddie
coasters compared to The Voyage (which is speeding up quite nicely).

Uggh...you've got to flaunt it in front of everyone don't you Paul?
I've been "single" since they changed the restraints on the force. Ah
well, Phoenix will have to do. See ya at PPP this year!
