You didn't go with us when we went to Niagara Falls (with Sam and Alice...yuk) and the carpenter ants in the camper, the two flat tires getting there, hearing Canadians complain it was the hottest July they ever experienced, and no AC in our slide in (Beverly Hillbilly's) camper??? You missed all the fun!
And my plan to throw Sam in the river and over the falls when we were on Goat Island? And to top it off that Dad "lost" my camera so we didn't have any pics? That
trip was better than any of Chevy Chase's vacation movies.
