Come Fly With Me, Sammy

You know whose coming for a visit Shoko?  Who, Mrs. Claus is running away from home?  It’s Sammy of One Spoiled Cat.  He is flying around the world and will be stopping here for a visit.  When?  He’s here Shoko.                                                         comeflywithmeSammy!!  You look refreshed.  The cold air rushing by your ears must sound like an ocean but feeling it on your furry face would be awesome.  Sammy welcome to our house, have some dried nip from the garden.  Mom mixed it with silvervine.  It’s a trip without a balloon, MOL                                                              aaanipshoksmYour operating the Hot Air Balloon so need all your faculties about you.   OK….just let me get a sniff and we’ll look about Prince George.

ballooncatsLook….Even Cow Kitty came to see you off,  You are an icon around here Sammy.  We talk of you often and always yell, “SAMMY” before we eat any bacon we get.  Bye Shoko and Sammy, have a great time.  Quit yakking at Sammy and let them take off, Cow Kitty.

Up, up and away we go.                                                                      aamooseThere’s a moose for you.  It’s a female that probably lives among the trees going up to UNBC.  UNBC is the University of Northern British Columbia.  maybe we’ll fly over it.                                                               013496f3fc194d86b11049b86913be35This is the Fraser River, where mom would walk Kali when they lived in the other house.  They walked along the beach beside the river.  Mom saw 2 beavers swimming about a foot and a half from Kali.  Kali was busy getting a drink and didn’t notice them.  A typical Kali move.  This park is Ft. George Park.

I know it’s really cold tonight Sammy.  The weatherman said -30C.  A wee bit nippy ole pal.                                                                        unbc-campus-aeriel-534This is UNBC, Sammy.  Our pride and joy.  Do you see the yellow trees.  These are pines that were killed when the north was inundated with Pine Beetles a few years back.  What a loss.

See down there and to your left is downtown Prince George.  I was born on the streets of Prince George.  I think that’s why loud peeps don’t turn my crank now.                                                                            pgsm You can see in the background the pulp mills.  Prince George was known for its pulp mills at one time.  The mills had many workers and was the major industry here.  The town stunk of sulphur which is used in the process.  It was a horrible smell mom said but the townsfolk said it was the, *smell of money.*                                                                   aapg  Isn’t this a beautiful mountain and just on the outskirts of town.

Oh look Sammy it’s the Northern Lights.  When we get away from the downtown area we get to see them but only when the sky is clear.                                                                             northern-lightsSammy, you’re looking rather cold.  Let’s go back home and you can get warmed up before you are off to the next town to visit.                                                            kisssammyWe love ya Sammy and Kali wants to kiss you for just being you.  I’m not the mushy sort like Kali but you mean the world to me Sammy.  I am delighted you came to visit our frozen neck of the woods.

Have a safe trip to your next destination Sammy.  Bye!                                                             comeflywithme                                                                         candle

    That was a lovely trip with very interesting views. Much too cold for me though. My mum says she would love to see the Northern Lights.

      I think Sammy had a good time. Your mum would love the Northern Lights. They are different each time we see them. Apparently it depends on the variables in the air at that time, like temperature and particles.

      Glad you enjoyed our wee city. It is a city. We brag 80,000 peeps so it’s small enough to know friends when one goes shopping. Thank you for visiting. Pop by again some time. We’ll have some refreshments and swap stories.

    what a wonderful trip. I worried a little if the hot air balloon is still the same when it lands in the snow, but it seems Sammy’s equipment can manage all weather… I bet he learnt a lot from his dad about flying machines…

      He handled that balloon like he was made to fly, not a single dip or shake. He must have learned a lot from his dad. You know when you’re around someone that accomplishes stuff, facts just soak in.

    Oh Shoko and Kali! What a wonderful tour of your part of the world – a part I’ve NEVER seen before. The view from the balloon was spectacular wasn’t it? You are lucky to live in such a beautiful spot on the planet (or as Easy said “Slice Earth”). Thanks for the nip/silvervine – it’s gonna keep me WARM on the rest of my journey. The Northern Lights are shining to say goodbye and I must say goodbye to you. Thank you. From the bottom of my ginger heart.

    Love, Sammy
