The Archies

Photo diaries from travels around our humble globe are still being posted; the unemployment diary has been downsized as i am now employed! I hope to post stuff to keep you distracted from your respective employment.

We've got a flock of british tourists with us at the mo, so we are doing the tourist thing with them - camping up north, CN Tower, and of course, Niagara Falls. Now one of the best parts of Niagara is not just the waterfall itself, but the miriad of wacky and tacky attractions nearby.

The king of all of these, i must say, is NIGHTMARES haunted house. You have to go slightly off the beaten trail, to the top of clifton hill and turn off it some, but it's worth seeking out. As this photo will attest.

My crew were completely cakking themselves. Completely drove the memory of the falls straight out of them with terror. Just check out my wife's face on the right!! At this moment a jeep is charging at us. I'd like to think i'm protecting everyone here, and not flailing wildly!

Everyone was great sports and there was very little crying.

    I love nightmares. Not as scary as income tax time, but still good fun.

    Are you and Charlotte looking at something completely different to everyone else? While the others are either surprised, transfixed or amused, you two look like you are about to meet your maker. Or Michael Winner.

    How strange that we both posted about nightmares on Wednesday. Do you ever wake up screaming?

    I clearly remember doing a Scooby-Doo and Shaggy thing by running on the spot and screaming while my feeble brain tried to figure out what was happening.

    I hope that Keith M and David M have forgotten the fool I made of myself. I shouldn't worry. david probably didn't see it since his face was buried in the back of my shirt.
