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.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

 

 

Skimming Through The Everglades

 

walkmiamiMom and dad had allotted  3 days to see all the sights in Florida.  They had spent most of their holidays living it up in Georgia.  One day had gone and so it meant our travellers had two days to see what they could.                                                                            shokszmcropMom and dad quickly got outta Miami and headed for anywhere else!  They drove past the airport a couple of times and both admired the size of the airport.   At this point dad decided to use the GPS as they  wanted to see something different.  Makes sense…go for it dad.  So he asked mom where she wanted to go.  Mom decided she wanted to go on an air boat ride through the Everglades and look at the wildlife.  Dad thought this was a cool idea so off they flitted in their rented Fiat.                                                              a4smExcitement went through the car at the unique sign.  They hadn’t seen a sign like this before.  No crocs though…except for mom…MOL  They must be getting close…

There it is!!  Gator Park.    Kinda touristy.  Off they went to act like the tourists they were.                                                                  a3zmThey both got t-shirts that had an alligator on the front and said, “Bite Me.”

There’s the air boat they rode in.

airboatWhoa, this is some kind of boat!!  Bet its fast.

a3smOh my!!  Hope there aren’t any snakes….I hate snakes!  Slimy, cold thingies.

allie2smMom is sorry for the blurriness of the picture but she got excited and didn’t take time to focus properly.  At least she’s honest about her screw ups.                                                            aaa2These are Mr. Google’s water lilies.  Mom could not get a picture close enough to show the detail in the lilies.  These water lilies only open half way…they never completely open and only grow in the deepest part of the water.

azmBig bugg…guy!  Apparently these brutes live for 30 to 50 years.

Mom said she really liked this waterfall and after the boat ride was very relaxing.                                                                         alsm       You looked way better before the air boat ride mom and dad!  Holy cwap, this seeing different locations looks hazardous to one’s health.

Here mom have a mint julep, it will eliminate the vapours you seem to have…..very badly.                                                           aaaThere you have it.  Day two in Florida is coming to a close.  They have one more day…what will they do?  We’ll see next installment my friends.                                                         Kali and Shoks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well, It’s About Time…… They’re Home

Mom and dad came home the other day.  Mom hollered in a croaky way for Kali and I.  Kali answered right away as she was in the livingroom practicing poses for her book on relaxation  .  I was cloistered in the bedroom looking for hidden cameras….to see if mom and dad had eyes on us even when they were away.  Sammy from One Spoiled Cat had alerted me to watch out for these cameras so I was tossing the room.  The search was going well until I noticed this light on the TV….it stayed on and was green.  Oh no…they’re peeping at us during their holiday.  I promptly came into the livingroom and mewed like mad at mom….cause I WAS mad.  Mom thought I was just happy to see her.  She gave me a big hug and I smelled a foreign cat on her t-shirt.  I must interrogate her about this betrayal but now wasn’t the time.

Mom dragged herself into the bedroom. She was hacking, sneezing and her nose was gushing…ewww. She came home a mess! My biohazard of a mother changed into night wear, flopped down on the bed and went to sleep.
