where have I been?

Where have I been?
Hubby and I took a mini vacation trip to Niagara Falls NY.

Didn't go to Canada as I don't have a passport or enhanced Drivers license...yet
We left on his birthday.
As we approached Niagara falls..the sky got darker and darker and by the time we got there it was a torrential down pour.
Somehow we found our way to the hotel parking lot and waited till it was just raining normally till we venture
d out of the car to check in.
We stayed at the Comfort Inn at the Pointe, which is right out side the park entrance and close to the Hard Rock Cafe.
After parking the car we didn't move it till we left 2 days later.

We walked everywhere.
The USA side of Niagara Fall is beautiful and park like.
Everyone says to go to Canada, but I think the view is just as nice from this side...except for all the tall buildings and Ferris wheels that are in the background over in Canada.

We had fun.

It was nice getting away from the neighborhood.
We checked out the Seneca Niagara Casino.
I lost $6.00 on the nickel machines.
Wanted to treat Hubby to the buffet at lunch, but it was too pricey.
$19.95 for a lunch Buffet?? Are they serious??
You would have to be pretty hungry to get your money's worth/

Apparently gone are the days of the cheap casino buffets.
I remember getting Surf & Turf in Vegas for $9.99

Two of my friends lost their fathers lately.
One died 2 days before fathers day.

He had brain cancer.
The other had a heart attack mowing his lawn.

His wife looked out the window and saw him on the ground next to the running lawn mower. The ambulance called and after being gone for 11 minutes, brought him back, only to be put on life support and never regain consciousness.
The last time my friend visited with her dad was on Father's day.
They took him off life support the other day.
These things usually come in threes.

I had a good fourth of July.
Hubby got some steaks and I made steaks and shrimp on the barbie, baked potatoes, grilled chicken, salad and corn on the cob for the 4 of us and my parents.
It was yummy.
I haven't seen my Dad eat that much in a long time.

I've been spending too much time on spacey face book page.
Dang Yoville and Farm town!! haven't played Mafia wars, don't intend to start.
Did find an old friend from AZ on it and got back in touch with her.

So I still am alive.
Go to the Gyno tomorrow for a checkup.
Appointment is at 8, so must get up earlier than usual.
so good night y'all
