Now, For Something a Little More Familiar

KALI…..ORANGE
NELLIE…..GREEN
SHOKO…..BLACK

Mom and dad checked the hotel room  a few times to make sure they didn’t leave anything behind.  Then it was off to Heathrow Airport.  Peeps had told mom it was a very hard airport to get through as it was huge.  It was very large but staff at the airport helped mom, so going through security was much easier.  They were even early for the plane so looked at various shops.                                                               Heathrow is very large with much walking.

The plane ride to Vancouver was very similar to the plane ride to Paris.  So I won’t bore you  with details.  When mom saw the sands of the beach near UBC (University of British Columbia), she got very excited.                                                                          We are sorry about the poor quality of the photo but the plane wasn’t all that close to the beach. MOL

Upon landing at Vancouver Airport,  dad was grabbing the luggage off the carousel when mom came moseying along to remind dad what our luggage looked like.  Talk about giving the, “evil eye!”  Dad ‘s look could have stopped a Canada Goose  in mid honk!                                                                   

When mom and dad got into their motel room, mom called Barb co-author of, “Nellie, On The Edge.”  Barb was not far away and came over to the motel room.                                                                            They chatted and laughed and then figured it was time to go see a special lady and have supper.  Off they went to Barb’s new townhouse.  Mom loved the townhouse  except for the many stairs but Barb said all this walking is paying off.  She had become  a few pounds lighter.  When they got to the livingroom…..there was Nellie, just hangin’ out.  

                                                      Can you hear Nellie saying….”It’s Shoko and Kali’s mom and dad…so where is mes protégé, the little devil?”

You left her at home!  Mes will just have to go visit her then.                                                                        Me’s ready for a nap now.

At this point Barb told mom and dad she made a pot roast with all the trimmings for dinner.  They all charged into the kitchen.  Although mom and dad were not very hungry as it was 3am in London.  If mom is going to have beef, she wants pot roast….this is her favourite beef meal.  What a scrumptious meal.  Sorry no pictures.   If we were home, mom would have asked for a kitty bag. MOL

Time to return to the motel.  Nellie was getting ready for a snooze so mom and dad were quiet and let Nellie snuggle down.                                                                          These are the last pictures of Nellie.  It was her time to leave for the Rainbow Bridge.  We were so fortunate to  know this lovely Queen.

Mom and dad left for Prince George the next morning.  I was delighted to see mom and wouldn’t leave her alone all night.  I whacked her on the head when she fell asleep.  I wanted loves.  Kali wouldn’t look at mom but chattered away to dad.  Three days later Kali decided mom was ok after all.

We hope you enjoyed mom and dad’s jaunt to the old country.  They brought back a virus with them and were laid up for three weeks after arriving home but they’re fine now.

Thank you to all the wonderful bloggers mom and dad visited.  You are all beautiful and creative peeps.

Surprise…Ooh La La

Shoko, come on over here.  Leave the digging for now.

Coming Kali…this must be important, Kali never calls me to come and sit with her.                                                             aashokzmcropOk I’m here, what’s the big deal.

Nellie from Nellie on the Edge and her mom, Barb, painted a picture of me and I got it today.  It was even addressed to me.  Aren’t I beautiful?                                                          KaliPainting copy

Nellie’s mom has captured the shape and sea blue of my eyes perfectly.  You’re right it looks just like you, Kali.  I must admit Nellie’s mom did an excellent job of capturing a Kali ghosty.  I could sit and look at me for hours.  Geesh Kali!  Do you know how vain that sounds?  I’m not vain but I also never lie and I look gorgeous.  Did it ever occur to you that I could easily be described as a voluptuous, platinum blond with flame coloured highlights.! Humpf.  Holy Catastrophe Kali.  If it makes you feel better, you’re the best looking ghosty I’ve ever seen.  Now, I’m getting back to the garden.

Come with me my friends.  Let’s spend some quality time with my picture.                                                               kalieaselflipMom is going to frame my picture so everyone can enjoy me.  Thank you so much Barb… we love my painting.

Have a fun day and enjoy the warm summer days as they won’t last.                                                                           SHOKOKALI2
