My first ferris wheel ride , Ohh yes, still remember it well, I was about 6 years old and my sistern law and my older sister that was 10 years old rode with me , well I walked to the DBF that is short for the Danile Boone Festival, we came up to the Ferris wheel waited in line and got a seat I was in the middle, well it was not to bad at first then I started to rise up I could feel the pressure riseing me up and I was looking at Sampson Hill over top the court house and looked down and this think did not have handle bars like my trike I had no control I wanted OFF!! I asked my sisterNLaw I said Please tell the man to let me off ok Very nicely he wouldnot let me off one time around was enough, well around I went again, Ohh no!!! This is dangerous humans dont belong up that high, I was really in scared I started to beg each time I went round I said Buddy please let me off , around again Buddy please Let me off , around again I was pleeding almost in tears everyone was watching me beg and laughing at me, I made direst eye contack with the Ferris wheel man Please Buddy please face to face , he ignored me well something hit me I knew I was going to whip Him soon as that ferris wheel stoped ,So please Buddy went to words that would Make a sailor repent!! Two of damn's and a Hell and a Big GoDmSoBithMFUK,,,with the fery of a preacher Me and the Ferris wheel man was gonna Go!!! I was ready to Jump Off the seat and land on Him, My sister N law was laughing as loud as Possible I was standing up in the seat cussing him and griping my fist for the Ferris wheel man and me to fight I was 6 He was around 25 years old But it was on , He got scared cause he could see blood in my eyes,and I could taste it, That was going to be one whiped man soon as I could jump out the seat He stoped the Ferris wheel I open the door and went for him and helf up my fist for the fight he steped back he was two times taller then me everyone step back and made room for me and him to go, I wanted a peice of him he backed down and would not fight me and had a confused look on his face I felt like a I felt like a fighting rooster I bet my hair was standing on its tips and eyes buged out with my fist drawn, I stood and looked at him and cuss him and told him to never do a little kid like that again you %@@?*7^*#,,,I parted the croud at the daniel Boone festival this was in 1967 I really think I could have whiped that man and me six years old I was like a wild cat when you made me mad and if you scare me and make me man I lost it, Never ride a ferris wheel if your I had the streth of sampson I could have turned that ferris wheel over,...I was in Miss Jarvis class at Knox Central in room 3 first grade,...parents be careful letting your kids ride the ferris wheel it can be dangerous for the people running the ride....and a six year olds mental state of mind.

I always thought that people who enjoy rides that make them dizzy and all the flashing excitment was a person that could become a drug user, You know like little kids spinning round and round until they are dizzy and likeing the feeling these kinds of kids might have something inside them as young as they are that may want to feel this strange feeling and later they could become drug users wanting to be drunk or high or some kind of unatural feeling,,,,does Unite have anything to do with this Fair , They could be planting seeds for future drug desires and usage in youths,
