Planes, Trains and Automobiles Part 1

See ya in a couple of weeks girls.  Love ya both and be nice to the pet sitter Shoko.  I’m always nice mom…see ya soon.  Then her and dad left for the airport.

 

Bye

Bye

ZZZzzzz

ZZZzzzz

Mom and dad left about 7:30pm for the Vancouver Airport so they spent the night in Vancouver. The next day they were up early, up and out to catch the United airlines plane at 11am for Chickago. That is 1761 air miles. The flight was 3 and a half hours and a change of 2 time zones. They landed at O’Hare airport at 5pm.  Mom struck up a friendship with Gus Moya, a training manager for United Airlines.

He looks nice doesn’t he? Meanwhile, dad is racing around trying to find their luggage. No, they didn’t come to carousel 33, the flight from Vancouver,
but were finally discovered hanging out with the luggage from Australia.

It was very cold in Chickago….-15F or -26C with a wind. Mom and dad scurried to their hotel like little mice escaping my furry clutches. The room had no heat….dad suggested sitting in the hallway to warm up….mom just gave him the evil eye. I taught mom the effectiveness of this look. Dad called maintenance. They were slow and couldn’t fix it. I mean friends their was ice inside the windows by the heater….ccccccold! They changed rooms and all was well. The next day they went to Macy’s. Dad was struck by the architecture. Beautiful ceilings….mosaic tile!

There are more pictures of the ceiling but I don’t want to bore you with the same stuff. I was getting bored when mom showed me all the pictures of the same ceiling.

They had to buy a new suitcase as one developed a great big hole in it after cavorting with the luggage from Australia….those Aussies must be thugs.

Mom and dad decided it was time to head to the Amtrak station and get their tickets for the train, “The City of New Orleans.” Off they went with their new red carryon. There was a total of 6 bags. Dad carried 5 of them. Mom struggled with one. That’s my mom, a real strong lady….hehe. They had reserved a sleeper because they would be spending the night on the train. The train left at 6:30pm.

We’ll leave off here as they get on the train bound for Memphis.  Thursday will have part 2.  See ya then my friends.  It is so good to talk with you again…. I really missed you guys.

      Let’s look at the bright side….a new suitcase is always a good thing. Heck, they probably hung on to the old one since they got married….well maybe not that long but pretty close.

    The Adventure begins huh??? Well, having to track down luggage which wound up in the WRONG baggage area could have been an omen for the trip to come….but time will tell! Gosh – no heat in the room – you’d THINK the dummies at the hotel would have made sure the room was ready for guests first! Harumph! Glad they finally got comfy though – that mosaic tile roof at Macy’s is fab…….Can’t wait to hear about the choo choo train trip!

    Glad you’re back Shoko and Kali – we missed you girls!
    Hugs, Sammy

      They did have an adventure but I’m so happy they’re home and things are back to normal. Every now and then I break out purring…I just can’t help myself. I’m a happy kitty.

      Good golly Miss Molly!! I never thought of that. I certainly hope she contained herself. Trains are so romantic and relaxing….she said before she left on the trip. We’ll see how she feels after riding one on Thursday.

        I love it! Maybe I can set up the murder with Chub Chub…that would be so cool. Yes, I have just the fowl for the murder…..mom bought me a Hooters duck to represent Ducky Boobies. We could kill him off. This could be buckets of fun my friend.

        I listened on ITube and the music is great…just what we want. That will be great for the introduction and maybe the spooky parts….although I don’t know how to add music to the spooky parts so hope you do. I’m getting ahead of myself. Do you have a character to introduce?

      Nice of you to visit….care for some nipenade? They both are Flame Points. Kali is one big girl and Banzai is no slouch either. Kali can shut me up just by sitting on me but she screams whenever I go near her. What a cry baby….seriously Kali…I don’t know? I myself think Banzai will keep you hopping….he has that curious look in his eyes.

      I guess I didn’t tell folk that mom and dad came home with a cold. Mom says Chickago was just too cold for her. The wind was enough to freeze the brass —– off a monkey. Now, that’s cold!

      Those Aussies must have been really tough in order to get a big hole in the suitcase. They’re even tougher when home! I guess they let their hair down and really let go. hehe Mom has a great stink eye that Shoko taught her…it’s hard to ignore and you know she means business. That’s my mom…

        Yes, I guess Shoko’s stink eye stays with one. I think its quite effective. It was probably time the pawents invested in a new suitcase anyhow. Mom gets attached to the weirdest inanimate objects…hehe

        You are welcome my fun cuz. Yes, you will probably get this eye thing on and off. I’ll tell ya something….mom has above the waste herpes…she got the flu and then developed Bell’s Palsy. Above the waste herpes also carries the Bell’s Palsy virus or vice versa…I’m not sure. This herpes did effect her the following summer too but has been lying dormant for some time now. Maybe that will happen with you too.
