Greetings, readers. Before we go any further, I want to give you a warning: If you’re shopping in the frozen food section in search of some Welsh Rarebit, check the ingredients list on the back of the box. The government makes them put it on there, and it’s a good thing because a lot of the Welsh Rarebit TV dinners don’t have any rabbit in them at all! I remember eating them when they used to be overflowing with rabbit, but now they just have a lot of cheese. Not that I don’t like cheese, mind you, but I already eat a few Activias a day and I don’t want to overdo it on the dairy.
You know what I’ve been thinking? Why aren’t they building new Space Needles anymore? Soon, it’s going to become a forgotten art altogether. I remember when they opened the original Space Needle at the World’s Fair and how enthusiastic it made people. For a little while there, it seemed like every city was getting its own Space Needle, but then they stopped making them. Then they started putting up ordinary rectangular buildings, the kind they’ve been making for hundreds of years. That seems like a step backwards if you ask me; those buildings are fine for people who want to live in the past, but for the rest of us, only a Space Needle will do.
I’m going to talk to some contractors to get a few estimates for a Space Needle addition onto the roof of my house. I don’t care if it doesn’t revolve like some of them do, since I would imagine that would make it considerably more expensive. Besides, revolving is mostly for restaurants anyhow. But as long as it looks like a real Space Needle, that’s fine by me. Maybe I could use it as a spare bedroom, or as an office. It might also make a nice greenhouse, which I think my grandson Max (“M-Fixie” to most of you) would enjoy since he’s taken quite an interest in them recently. As you can see, the things you can do with Space Needles are only limited by your own imagination. Someone’s got to put us back into the space age, and it looks like it’s going to have to be me.
Until next time!
