awsome is the only word



what's this got to do with motorcycles, u ask

well we were walking around buffalo sunday morning when i saw "the anchor bar" Those of you watch the food channel know this is the place that buffalo wings were started. I gotta go here, 30 minutes till they open. We go in wendys & the guy says your waiting for the anchor to open aren't you. I said yes, what's there to do close by for 30 minutes.....he says well it sunday you could go to church.




i see his point

we didn't make it to church, both of us are long over due

but the anchor opened and in we went

ya'll want a hear alittle about our trip to the falls?

ok, i'm glad you asked. I was flying outta memphis, robin was flying outta atlanta. To fly outta memphis to buffalo ya gotta stop somewhere. So i'd plotted to make sure i wounde up on the same plane out of atlanta as robin. Even had us sitting together. Of course me being me i told her we'd have to find each other at the airport in buffalo.

Now before she met me she'd never been "north of that line"

Which line you ask. That would be the mason dixon line

She's flown out to memphis 3 times sence i've been here, missed her plane twice. So when we start boarding she's not there & i'm thinking i'm fixing to go to buffalo by my self. Then i see her coming.
We land, call the hotel they send a van, van pulls up, we get in & he takes us to a hotel on the other side of town from our hotel.

Super nice people take us downtown to our hotel.

That night we walked all around downtown buffalo, cool town lots a neat buildings. Alittle bar hopping, find the trolley partway back to hotel.

The next morning we go down to the lobby set up ride to the bus station that'll take us to the falls. They tell us we have time to eat . The waitress left our table 3 times to get us drinks and never did.. Bless her heart. Food (no drinks) finally got there, we wolfed it down took off. Van took off for bus station, for some reason he had to turn around to go back to hotel, then he dropped us at the bus station & told us if the bus was already gone to come back around here and we could catch it as came around the block. As we went in the station some guy saw us rushing in & started yelling at us "u done missed the forty" (only it came out fotey) We were having a hard time understanding him, when he finally got us turned around taking off around the block, the bus driver was waiting around the corner, looking where he thought we'd come out of the station. He saw us and made sure we got on the right bus.

The gray hound was the way to go from buffalo to nigara & back 5$

We saw the falls , walked across the rainbow bridge and left the good old us of a, the 1st time for both of us.

We tried to eat at the resturant over looking the falls, but after waiting about 20minutes from when we sat down no one had even came by to take out drink order. So we left walked up to the sky tower for lunch in the rotating resturant overlooking canada and the falls. It was about 3:05, they quite serving lunch at 3 and didn't serve supper till 4:30 it's all about the timeing folks. & i have no timing

Stopped in a casino planning to lose some money, walked over to the blackjack table & asked where the 2$ table was? They guy started laughing & said this was the 25$ table that was as cheap as it got. Well it looks like i got laughed out of the casino. Couldn't even find a slot machine that took change. Had to give that money away somewhere else.

Well our fancy meal became pizza & beer at the honeymoon tiki hut while listening to karokee. It was good. The pizza, not the karokee

We took a bus tour that showed us the tower on the america side, maid of the mist, daredevil musem, told us alot of history , the whirlpool & the best part, cave of the winds(this is where u walk under the falls and look up at them.). We were so late we got to do this afterdark with the lights shining on it.

We got back from all that right after the next to last bus left, 11pm ish. We thought about a taxi, but being the cheapskates we are we went to the hardrock for food & drinks. Went back to the bus stop where they'd dropped us off that morning & waited on the 12:30am bus. 2 lesbians came up asking us " if thise wo da fotey". We told yea this was where it let us out this morning. We bs ed some. & i was looking at my phone when one of the girls screamed & took off running. That 's when i saw the bus pulling out from across the intersection.

The guy cleaning up in front of the store we were sitting at explained the forty back to town, left from over there.

timing people it's all about the timing. Well the girls were headed down town too, so we split a taxi with ataxi driver with a jealous girlfriend.



Sunday we walked around town, found the anchor bar, took the trolly down to the erie harbor took the tour of 2 battle ships and submarine. Got to the airport, plane left late (more timing) we landed late at gate B1, thats at the end of the concorse. I kissed robin good bye, ran for the train to get to concouse A, got there right at boarding time. Which turned out to be the time they were announcing that our gate had been moved we were now boarding at B5. . Yes thats two gates down from where i'd just came from. this shit's rough on a fat man.

As i'm going tru the airport i see the duck commander, willie from the duck dysanty show on tv. Ran into a guy i worked with in augusta, that i ran into last time i was in daytona.

Any way weekend away from home with the wife & away from work it was AWESOME

prefect weather, met lots of nice folks everywhere we went. & got to cross something off the bucket list.


One of the things that keeps making me grin, is remembering robin telling the folks in wendy's (in her southern accent) how nice the people we'd met were. "she just didn't think they're would be nice people north of that line"
