Mom and Dad Fly the Friendly Skies

Did mom tell you about their trip to France and the UK, Shoko?  She told me about France, Kali.  Did she tell you about the UK?  She did.  Then between the two of us we can tell our friends what they did on their vacation.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE                                                                   

In the middle of March mom and dad said goodbye and we never saw them again….whoa Shoko, they did come home.  Well, it was like 3 weeks till we saw those bleary  eyes again.  That’s like forever for a feline.                                                                            You have to be the biggest drama queen in Prince George, Shoko!

Off they flew down to Vancouver and to their motel  Dad grabbed someone else’s suitcase in the airport and never noticed until the airport called and told him.  Mom’s niece drove dad back to the airport to get their suitcase.

 When the family gathered for dinner, they all gave mom the respect she deserved and kissed her ring.  Oh brother!  Mom is not the godfather of her family.  Who is then?  Nobody…it’s just a normal family.  Mom has a normal family….I don’t think so, there’s got to be something odd about them.  Whatever Shoko.

The next day they got up and flew on Air Canada to Montreal.  Four hours of cramped legs and a TV  set so close it was almost up her nose as the person in front set their seat to go back several feet.  Ok, Kali a few inches.  Geesh!

Mom was off the plane right smartly in Montreal and 3 gates away was the flight to Paris.  She quickly rushed over as they were calling for everyone to board.  Mom and dad were on the plane right smartly and then they sat and sat on the plane as the plane needed de-icing but there were two planes waiting to be de-iced first.

Finally the plane took off for Paris.  Mom was excited to be going to such a well-known and romantic city.  Six hours later, the thrill of going to  Paris had worn off as she felt sweaty, hot and incredibly tired.  Dad was snoring in the seat beside her.  She wanted to poke him but restrained herself.

At long last they arrived at Charles De Galle Airport in Paris.  The hotel chauffeur gave them the ride of their life.  There were mopeds all over the street, weaving in and out of traffic, that was bumper to bumper.  They reached the hotel safely and leaped to solid ground.                                                                   The best picture of a moped in traffic mom could get.  The bikes go like stink.

 

After checking into their little room, mom and dad went for a drink of Pepsi in the hotel lounge.  There was a small courtyard off the lounge so our pawrents decided to partake of the fresh air.  No Pepsi but Coca Cola everywhere in France.  Coke will do in a pinch.                                                             Does she not look like an enthusiastic explorer? MOL

Next installment finds mom and dad trying to navigate the Paris  transportation system.

        I always have the evil thought in my mind to open a door of the car when I see them coming… but after reading the small print of the car insurance I have to stay away from such fab entertainment… sigh…

      I guess the mopeds are cheaPER THAN CARS AND EASIER TO MANEUVER. Not as comfortable though. Apparently, the police crack down on the mopeds in southern Paris but not northern Paris. Perhaps the wealthy live in southern Paris where in northern Paris the peeps are more, shall we say *earthy*.

    Hilarious suitcase mix-up. Sounds like my mom – snorts with piggy laughter. Your mom does look tuckered out. Give her another COKE that should help. Shaking my head. Didn’t your parents learn anything here? COKE RULES – HA! XOXO – Bacon

      Dad doesn’t seem to notice details like this is not our suitcase….yes it’s red but not ours. Yes, it is riding the carousel with our other suitcases but not ours. Oh well they never lost their suitcase and nobody stole their stuff….suitcase was locked. MOL

      Of course COKE RULES but they seem to go their own way and like PEPSI. I think it’s all gross. Give me a bowl of chicken broth any day.

        I know mom and dad would love to see your mom and dad again soon and make more memories. Mom says maybe she should drink the coke instead of spraying it on peeps….good thinking mom. MOL

      Hi my mancat! Personally, I’m super glad mom didn’t pack me….I could have been in the suitcase they left at the airport. Besides there is no way I’m sitting still for 10 hours on the plane. I was having treats at home while these two were trying to figure out how to watch the TV on the plane. MOL

      You ladies would like Paris for a change but not all the time. Mom couldn’t find one pet store in Paris and she really looked. Mom was obviously asleep on her feet…that’s her *idling* face. MOL

      I don’t understand why the airline does that….it is a good source of anger. If, Imomlet her back down, then the person behind her would be in the same position as mom was. It’s dumb. Maybe somebody will get up and hit the person in front of them and then the seat backs will change.

    Well Mom and I knew that your parents would make this adventure a ton of fun with a healthy dose of crazy (!) – and they didn’t disappoint did they?!?! There’s a lot to do in both Paris AND London and I think they did more than most! Can’t wait to hear more….I know they had the time of their lives but I also bet they were very happy to see your kitty faces again and sleep in their very own beds (with normal pillows!).

    Hugs, Teddy

    Shoks, you have quite the imagination “kissed her ring,” LOL! I bet “little room” was right. Everything is smaller in France, including food portions compared to our put on 50 pound portions. Please give The Godmother my regards.

      So true Amy, I am a bit of a drama queen….I should’ve been a catress….I’d be very good. Indeed mom and dad came face to face with small a number of times. The meals were great for mom and dad never complained he was hungry so Canadians eat far to much. Mom never saw a fat Parisienne.
