Jan and I, plus Bob and Carolyn Traylor just got back from a trip to Niagara Falls and Canada. It was to celebrate the Traylors’ 50th Wedding Anniversary. We were joined there by Carolyn’s Banning High School buddies. Dick and Susan Coombs. Susan by the way was Carolyn’s Maid-of-Honor those 50 years ago.
I have to admit that Niagara Falls was on our bucket list and we were duly impressed with it all. To us Southern Californians, seeing all that free flowing water made us mighty envious and nervous.
We shanghaied Dick to serve as our chauffer. Bob and I figured that him being a retired rocket engineer or whatever, he would be the most qualified to figure out those Canada highways. (You notice I wrote Canada highways instead of Canadian highways. They are sensitive, I think, about using the word Canadian.) Anyway Dick did a great job, and too the best of my knowledge, the Mounties have not, as yet, put out any wanted bulletins on him.
One of the highlights of the trip was attending Canada’s longest running dinner show, “Oh Canada Eh?”It has been more than 19 years, over 4,000 performances, since it opened in Niagara Falls City. It is in a rustic log cabin theater seating 250 guests. In between scenes they served the best family style meal this side of Oklahoma City.
All in all, it was a great vacation and an outstanding Wedding celebration for the Traylors.
