A Side trip To An Amazing Town

KALI……ORANGE                                                                               Mom and dad were up early to catch the train headed north.  They caught the bus to King’s Cross Station.  

We thank Mr. Goggle for the use of this image.Aha….I smell a challenge!  Looks like a long walk to get insideYou can do it mom.

The inside seemed much more like spaces mom and dad were used to as the waiting rooms were huge.  St Pancras was bigger but the areas tended to be divided up more…  just sayin’.                                                                

Hey, this is where they filmed the scene as Harry Potter goes through the pillar at Platform 9  3/4 to catch the Hogwarts Express.

For those of you not familiar with Harry Potter please click on his name and you’ll get a brief history of him.  

Woo hoo, mom had to try this one.

Looks like it didn’t work…take another run at the pillar mom. MOL

 The train arrived at just the right time.  It is a shiny one.  We like shiny things.

They each had a, “Ticket to ride.” MOL                                                                                    

Arriving 3 hours later at Norgate.  A lovely town with hardly a car on the roads…they sure weren’t in London anymore.  Who offered them a ride but Bionic Basil’s PA and dad.  Cathrine and Josh took us to view a beautiful old church called Southwell Minister. Bionic Basil’s post of  Shoko and my meeting was reblogged on The Canadian Cats.

Cathrine and mom posing for pictures.  Josh is in the background.

We all headed over to see Basil and the Heathen Horde.  Well, Basil was waiting for us to come through the door.                                                                    I can just hear Basil saying, “What took you so long to get here?” MOL

Here is more of the horde.   They were very interested in what mom and dad were doing here.

Mom will always thank Cathrine and Josh for the Yorkshire Gold tea they found for mom.

 

Before they knew it, the time came for mom and dad to get back on the train.

One last look at Basil’s backyard where he and the horde play their war games.

Mom and dad were off  to London on the train.

They had one place to go in the evening and it was to the theatre to see The Mousetrap.  No mice were injured in the play.  This play has been running since the 1950’s.  They changed theatre’s in the 70’s, moving to St. Martin’s Theatre.  The cast has changed but the play keeps going.  Mom and dad were mesmerized by the actors and thoroughly enjoyed the play.                                                                      This was mom and dad’s last night in London.  Tomorrow they fly to Vancouver, British Columbia for another fun visit.                                                                            

Have a fun Caturday

 

                                                            

Crime Scene Deductions

I have tried everything Kali and I can get the blood evidence to show me the teeth marks but can’t seem to get much farther.  I’m going to have to call someone in that can help me figure this out.                                                                     aashokwaitHere comes our help Kali.

akoI see her Shoko! MOL  What is it Kali?  Nothing…..hehe                                                              charlieentryOh hi, you must be the protégé of Sherlock Holmes.  I am.  You can call me Sherl.  Let me take your cape, um….Sherl.  Thank you, Shoko.  Now tell me where is the elf crime scene? Follow me, Sherl.  The crime scene is the laundry roomCrime Scene tape has kept looky loos out, like mom and dad.                                                                cscharlieWhere is the blood evidence?  We must check and make sure thee Cow Kitty did not scoop up the elf and leave his fang marks.                                                                laundrybloodstainsThis proves without a shadow of a doubt, Cow Kitty does not have blood on his paws.  Ya hear that Kali?  The great Sherl Holmes has declared Cow Kitty an innocent dude, at least in this case.  So who done did do this to Elfin John?  I need to rest now and energize with a delicious cup of Yorkshire Gold tea and cogitate on this dilemma. 

Well, you heard Sherl Holmes, she needs a rest before continuing with the case,  We will be back to conclude this case on Wednesday.  The game is afoot my friends.

SHOKO…..BLACK
