The The Trip of a Lifetime :)

12 Mar

Oh my friends – SQUEALS.  Finally, we get a change to talk about THE trip.  You know the one where my humans ran off and left us anipals with Nana and met *my* friends and had a great weekend.  Yeah, that weekend trip – snorts and rolls with laughter.  You see my friends Kali and Shoko at The Canadian Cats sent an email to my mom asking her if her and dad wanted to meet up during their vacation.  Of course my mom jumped at the chance.  Finally the weekend came and mom shipped all of us up the street to Nana’s…. which might I add what happened at Nana’s that weekend stays at Nana’s.  🙂

So mom are coming from the Atlanta area and are using the good old GPS to get to Huntsville, Alabama.  Now daddy said that Mr. GPS took them on every pig trail to get there.  Now I kind of take offense to that.  I don’t do pig trails – I make them!

But something fascinating happened right before mom and dad took off – actually the night before.  Do you know it snowed here.  Well it didn’t here at the Hotel Thompson but up towards the mountain areas, it snowed and iced pretty bad.  See, this picture mom took from her window.  It’s icy over there on the mountain top.  And don’t worry about mom driving and using her camera.  Snorts – mom said that they got behind someone that wasn’t used to A – driving on winding, curving mountain roads and B – driving on ice.  So mom was practically stopped when she took this picture.  It was really pretty.

Mom said she should have taken a picture on dad’s side.  Why?  Because it was straight down off of the mountain!  I would have watered the back seat if I saw that.  Can you imagine?

 Here’s a closer picture of the frozen ice on the mountains.  It was outrageous!  The GPS had mom and dad going through the mountains then to the left dropping in Huntsville, Alabama.  The only ice and snow mom saw really was in the mountains.  Cool huh?  Scenic route full of curves and fun.

And below is a family picture of all of them – from left to right – Bill, Jean, daddy, mommy and yeah that’s the waiter Jordan beside mommy.  Snorts!  He was a cool guy.  And in fact, mommy is doing a food blog today about the restaurant and Jordan.  So check it out here.  You won’t believe the fun they had… or the trouble they found.  And stay tuned to mom’s food blogs for the next week or two.  Mom and dad hit a lot of great restaurants to and from Alabama.

Don’t you love this picture?  Mommy has it printed out and framed on her desk here at the Hotel Thompson in her office.  I just loved it too!  Mom and dad told me so many stories about the weekend.

And look at all of these wonderful goodies that came home with mom and dad that Bill and Jean gave them.  I especially love the Pork with An Attitude shirt.  How did they know I had an attitude – snorts.  And mom says the Canadian Collection are all kinds of chocolates.  She says they are fabulous.  She took them to work and has them on her desk in her candy bowl.  Yummers!

And below these – Houdini is playing with his quack bird or is it a Canadian goose?  Snorts!  Daddy got in trouble for playing with it inside of the house.  You see you hold the tail in one hand and the beak in the other then let go.  That thing can fly!  And of course, Houdini loves it!   The other picture of Houdini is him trying to take over the purr things cat toy.  He got caught and mom was fussing at him that it belonged to Hemi and Mouse Girl.  Busted little man!  There are a few more things that I will share next week.  I know you can’t wait.  It was definitely an awesome night and thank you so much Bill and Jean for the goodies.  I do wish we were closer!!

    Well they report that they had a ton of fun with your parents too Bacon so I do believe it was a WIN/WIN!!!!! My Mom got a box of those chocolates from Miss Jean at Christmas time and they were DELISH – Mom would NOT share them though…….she ate every single dingy-dangy one of them and even poor Dad didn’t get one.

    Hugs, Sammy

      Snorts – my mom has done the same thing cousin. She has kidnapped them and taken them to work with her saying to daddy that she needs them for her sanity. I don’t get it. Her sanity has been gone for a long time – Double snorts and rolls with laughter. It was such a fun visit with Bill and Jean. See, I’ve kept quiet about it all of this time until they got back home. I guess I can keep a secret. XOXO – Bacon

    OMD the evil GPS girl said they have to drive via northpole to Huntsville? But I bet it was worth to travel to the Icicle-Mountains to meet the pawrents of Shoko&Kali, they are super peeps, right? It’s great to meet the people behind the blogs in the furs… and I wish someone would finish my tunnel, that I can meet you all too :o)

      aaww brother – I so agree!! It would be a hilarious time to meet ya’ll – for sure! Mom said she gave Bill and Jean hugs from all of you. It was a fun time for sure and mom and dad said it wouldn’t be the last meet up in blogville. They look forward to many more. So I guess they had a great time in Alabama. Funny thing though – dad said he never heard banjo music. Weird. Strange. Snorts and rolls with laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    Mom and dad really enjoyed the visit too! I was disappointed you didn’t bring Bacon with you but mom explained that it was a long drive and Bacon would be happier at nana’s. I know how much Bacon loves to go to nana’s so I agreed with them. Mom and dad were all chatter about your mom and dad when they came home. I knew your pawents would be awesome…you are.

      Thanks my friend. My parents were the same way. They had an awesome time. We all did have fun at Nana’s. I can’t tell you what we did there – looks innocent. You know the rule. What happens at Nana’s, stays at Nana’s. Mom and dad were all giddy upon their return about how cool your parents were. You are very lucky my friend! XOXO – Bacon
