Back from Niagra Falls

  1. Hi Friends,

    Well here is my Niagra Falls story. Picked up hubby's friend at the airport and drove 4 1/2 hrs. to the Falls which are beautiful. When we checked into our hotel (which we had reservations made 2 months in advance) the room smelled like stinky feet and the airconditioner did not work. The manager sent a maintenance man to the room to wiggle the switch, a lot of good that did. The manager assured us it would be fixed so off to drink some beer and play blackjack we went. Upon returning to our room about 2am it still stunk and the airconditioner was still broken, hubby goes to kill the manager but the new one on was great and sent up to a nicer hotel, the Hilton across from the falls, whirlpool tub in room, great hotel and room. Had a few more beers, walked around the town which is amazing, 2am and little kids still up and out. Went to the Ripley's Believe it or not museum, saw real shrunken heads and a bunch of other torture devices that we thought were funny (I think it was the beer). Finally passed out at who knows what time. The next day we walked through a beautiful park and over to the falls, so hot and humid it was time for a drink. Had a nice lunch at Planet Hollywood. Did I mention that Hubby lost $1,200 dollars the night before on blackjack? Well today was a new day and a luckier one, we won 1/2 back. There is so much to do for families it would be a great week long vacation but it was time to leave so off we go to cross the border back to the USA, all the lines were moving except of course ours. The rental cop at the gate was doing body searches I think. anyway when we finally got there he asked stupid questions like are you transporting any weapons, alcohol, drugs. If you were would you admit it? What a A--hole! Okay back home to relax now and I must catch up on the allnurses boards. Next time I think we will lose our money in Las Vegas. :chuckle
