After writing this blog for the Niagara Falls Tourism Association for the past ten years (Original launch date, October 21, 2008) it’s sad for me to say this will be my last blog. Almost from day one, Toni Fusarelli, of Niagara Falls Tourism has assisted me with research and suggested blog content. Thanks Toni for all your hard work over the years. I’ll miss dealing with you and all the other fine folk at the bureau. Special thanks to my wife Ellen for putting up with me.
Some of you have been aware for the past two years I’ve been battling Parkinson’s disease. (My wonderful brother Greg, who also worked in his tourism industry for many years, has had Parkinson’s for 24 years!) My shaking has become a bit too much to handle. Researching and typing these blogs have become a real challenge. In addition to Parkinson’s, I also have developed Stenosis and osteoarthritis of the spine. I now require the use of a cane and a walker to get around. Aren’t I a joy to be with!
I’m closing in on the better side of 75 (no…that couldn’t be me!) and enjoyed every moment of those years.
Thanks folks, I hope to still see you around.
