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.

Talkative Tuesday

I just had to show you the flat me that dad made.  Mom called me off security patrol on my fence to have a look..                                       Shoko zoomedI left the fence just a galloping like a horse across the lawn.

There I was….flat Shoko.  You know I think it looks just like me.

What do ya think?  Is this me or what?

Now, my friends on a serious note.  Raz and Allie of Cat Scouts and their blog  Friends Furever along with Ellie their sister have had a terrific shock.  Their dad has a rare form of cancer on his nose and will require extensive surgery.  The whole family is devastated as you could imagine.  I am asking that you send your mightiest prayers and purrs to their dad to support him through this trying time.  This family has been praying and purring for Bill from the moment we heard the news.                                                       PRAYERSFORBILLMay TPOTP be with you throughout your ordeal.

 

Sunday Selfie and the Sun

Another beautiful day in the sun.  It was suppose to rain but no, just more sun.  The wind has gotten up so it feels cooler.  Mom replaced some Lobelia that was sun damaged with bright pink Snapdragons.

Dad brought our pool out from behind the shed.

Mom didn’t want to fill the pool up the way we like…..to the top, because the cow kitten next door might drown.

C’mon mom this is a real stretch for a sip of water!  Anyway Kali helped focus the camera and I had it on timer….voila….a selfie….sort of. MOL
