21st August 2005

Nothing to do with flying, but I thought I would announce my latest venture. It seems google search is a very powerful tool. A few weeks ago I was contacted by e-mail. Pictures of me on my unicycle had turned up in a google search.... would I be willing to ride in the Dundas Cactus Festival? Sure...where is Dundas? Well it turns out it is about an hour away. I would have to get Emma to drive me there (she took time off work) and I would also need to buy a new giraffe unicycle. No problem! They agreed to the high fee, so I was all set to go. The only problem was the pedals kept slipping. This is not good. It makes you constantly concerned about falling off AND means that you cannot idle (stay in one spot). Things worked out ok and I managed with the defective unicycle. A very tiring hour and fifteen minutes later I collected my reward, which went some way to paying for the new unicycle. With all that money burning a hole in my pocket I decided to treat Emma to a meal.

So if you stumble across this page looking for a unicyclist, fire club juggler or fire breather get in touch I would be happy to take part in your parade/festival/fayre. I might even bring the monkey suit if it isn't too hot.

Don't try this at home



Incidentally I am in the St Catharines area, which is in the Niagara region of Ontario. Contact me
