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.
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
It’s time we asked mom when she’s going away so we can plan our wee pawty with the gang from Blogville. Should we tell mom about the pawty Shoko? Are you kidding….no way. She would be upset and give Judy some terrible rules like hide the nip and put all the toys away. I have mom’s credit card number and have been paying attention when she buys something. You better not get mom in trouble or you’ll be looking for a new home. You mean she’d get rid of me over a few measly dollars. With her credit card! No, mom wouldn’t get rid of you….I would. You don’t hurt the ones you love Shoko, not ever. So we do this pawty proper like or we have none. I see what you mean Kali and I won’t use mom’s credit card. How bout her emergency money? That’s border line bad behaviour Shoko. Well, how else are we going to get the money for a happening pawty? Steal the things we need? Mom would be horrified if we stole anything. She just wouldn’t tolerate that kind of behaviour from either of us. We weren’t brought up to steal what we want. Well, I don’t have any idea then. *sigh*
Stay still Shoks, you’re making me dizzy with your blurriness. How bout your Da Bird wand…..we could get a few dollars for that at the …..No way sis, Einey gave me Da Bird for Christmas. I’m never, ever, ever parting with it. OK, OK…cool your booties, I won’t take it away. Hi there mom, we were just talking about you and dad and your vacation. Where are you going? We’re going to France Shoko. FRANCE…you mean like Paris. Exactly! Cool, that’s where I went with Cat Scouts. You going to see the Eiffel Tower? Oh we can’t miss seeing such a wonderful place. Did you know that Einey and I went hang gliding off the Eiffel Tower. Really, weren’t you scared? Well, a little but Einey was with me. He would save you right Shoko? No….if I die in the jump, so does he. See, don’t we look cool. How long will you be gone mom? A couple of weeks Shoko. We leave next week. We’re also headed for London after France. So you are going to more places than Paris in France? Yes, you betcha. We’re going to see Phenny and his parents. No seriously mom, anyone I would know? Phenny and his parents Shoko. They live across a huge pond……you can’t jump that far and our magic carpet wouldn’t hold you and dad. You’ll have to wait and see the pictures when we get back.
Friends, friends. That’s it Kali! I got it. We can ask our friends to bring one fun food or drink to the pawty. By the time 10 friends are here the choices will be fantastical. I like that Shoko….we can supply some things like nip, some silvervine and chicky broth with a blob of chicky in it. We can get some good games going too. We have to have a catchy name. How about Shoko and Kali’s Lucky Pot Pawty? Let it be……come one and all to our Lucky Pot Pawty. The last week of March is when we are having the funniest pawty you have ever seen.
The mail lady rang the doorbell….quick run UTB. Who was the package from Kali? I don’t know ….let me go see. Hey, it’s from Easy in France. Really? That’s awesome……all the way from France. C’mon mom, hurry and open it. Oh look there’s Fozziemum’s picture of a kangaroo on the card. That’s right Easy won some of Fozziemum’s cards, Now we have one too. Flat Shoko will be spending Christmas with Easy and his staff. Cool! Look at the Oktoberfest stuffs. Woah! Let me get your picture Kali. Don’t fidget.
Now for Cow-Kitty:
We had to cheat and pizap his hat on him. He was very uncooperative. Doesn’t he look like Harry Potter? He just needs a pair of glasses.
OK Shoks we’ve all had our pictures done except you. Your turn.
MOL Once again you look totally ticked Shoko. I guess I just look that way Kali.
Dad has a great photo.
Notice the pearl necklace she’s wearing. Sorry but the earrings have Beatrice’s name on them. Beatrice will be back from her modelling assignment for Christmas. So we thank you Easy and staff for her.
Mom is looking through the Halloween ornaments for her cauldron. I hear her now…..hahahahahahahahahahahaha
