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.

From Food to Fashion

The day started pretty good.  Shoko and I dug into our Beef Flavoured Fancy Feast as soon as mom got up.  We were starving!  Mom has decided we don’t need kibble to nibble on all night because in the morning we are not hungry and we don’t care about our wet food.  Needless to say we cleaned the bowls.

                                                             Shoko and mom had a fast and furious game of yellow wand after brekkie and I watched. Occasionally I whacked the furriness on the wand.

             Woops, looks like mom’s paw made it to the screen.  You see how I’m telling her to get her paw outta the picture by staring…..but she didn’t catch on.                                                   Notice, Shoko is moving so fast, she’s blurry.  It had nothing to do with mom’s picture taking ability.  MOL

I decided to relax in the livingroom and Shoko went outside to see if Cow-Kitty was up to any mischief.  Well, these peeps came to the door and mom let them in with this big long hose.  The man went to the basement and the girl was taking the heating vents out.  Talk about an invasion of privacy.  I quickly slipped out of sight.

Shoko came to the window, took one look and listen and she was gone.                                                                           DSCN1856The  peeps kept making noise all day, well for an hour anyway.

They took a picture of all the dry wall and pieces of metal they found. I guess they take pictures just in case mom gets the idea they stole some drywall…..now that’s covering your butt.                                                         Mom says this house was made in 1996 and she has had the ducts cleaned 3 times since she moved here 7 years ago.  This shows what a crappy job the previous duct cleaners did, if there was still drywall and building material in the vents. 

After these loud and noisy peeps left Shoko came in and relaxed on mom’s desk.                                           DSCN4341After dinner mom brought out the heater she got for my hip.

DSCN4357Now this is awesome….nice and warm on my booty.  A booty warmer just for me!

Shoko got a new wand as hers is pretty tacky with strings dangling all over.                                                                  DSCN4364Hopefully this wand will last for awhile even though Shoko beats them up.

Shoko then modelled the new scarf she got.

DSCN4359She’s looking pretty snazzy in that black scarf.  That desk is terrible mom! 

DSCN4363This was our Thursday.  Hope yours was a good one.
