Wishful thinking...  
Well, it's that time of year again. We've got most of the things were bringing packed up into the motorhome so that us and the cats can leave the beach house for the rest of the year and drive up to the cabin in Alberta. It will drive the cats nuts, as usual, but they always appreciate being able to watch the squirrels outside the cabin frolic.

Most of you should have received your airline tickets to join us for our annual American Thanksgiving feast by now. You'll be staying in the lodge down the way, since we're not made of money and space, but that's how it goes. Susan, since you've got extra time this year, the extra room is all set up ^_^

Plus! The caterers had a choice of three desserts this year, and I couldn't choose, so we're having all three! SQUEE!!

See y'all at the cabin!

I have extra time too! Perhaps I will even stay a few extra days. My cats love the squirrels too. Arn't they all cute with their little noses pressed up against the glass.

P.S. I found the guy with the Cannon. He has agreed to let me have the photos, but I have not coerced him into sending them yet. There is a great one of me that I could use a little photoshop help with....I want to erase a small part, I like the rest of it. I will forward whatever he sends me....A lot of the photos are motion blurred, but I think that they look cool. Now to go beg him to send them....

Our cats would freak if you brought them to the house, but if you want to stay a couple extra days at the lodge down the way we can do some shopping over the weekend...

Good to hear about the pics, btw, keep me updated!

You have a point, and getting all of my cats past TSA just may be a bit of a chore.....:)
Frittersfritters on November 13th, 2007 01:42 am (UTC)
One more reason we're driving over the border this year again, not to mention the stress of having the cats fly. The motorhome takes longer, but it's so much easier on them.

So will you be staying long enough for Saturday shopping? We can make it a Girls Day Out. Calgary is only about an hour from the cabin...
lironesslironess on November 13th, 2007 02:07 am (UTC)
Sounds awesome, and since we both know that I am made of money, we should do a full on spa treatment too! That should only take four hours or so! Whatcha think?

You mean to tell me that your cats don't fly? Mine do all of the time! Even at home? Do you have some sort of strange non-flying cats? You don't have to vacuum up feathers once a week? WOW!
Fritters: Ed Resting by Frittersfritters on November 13th, 2007 03:51 am (UTC)
My fantasy world is only different by the amount of income I have, so no, my cats don't fly. Yours can, though...

I think I can schedule a spa treatment right after we can expect to be done shopping and before we have dinner with the guys. Is that good for you?
lironesslironess on November 13th, 2007 05:42 am (UTC)
Perfect! I can't wait.

Whoa, I just got strafed by a cat!

Let's do the full on treatment.....BTW do they have a chocolate shop, I could really go for chocolate covered strawberrys, UUUMMMMM.....

Sushi for dinner? I'm up for anything, but that sounds good right now.

Yes actually, Calgary has a genuine Belgian Choclatrie (not wishful thinking). And one of the larger hotels does Death By Chocolate Buffet...

I should be flying in early that week, assuming the FAA finally flight-certifies my "hobby project"...
(I swear that's taking longer than building it did! Then again, it does Really redefine the word "experimental...")

(Hey, I dream big!)
Frittersfritters on November 13th, 2007 06:18 am (UTC)
Well, we're leaving at dawn, the feast is Thursday, of course. Will you be able to make it or should I remove the reservation at the lodge?
postrophe on November 13th, 2007 08:05 am (UTC)
Keep the reservation, I'll make it one way or the other. If they haven't ok'd me for flight I'll just have to, um, take the 'short cut'.. (which they have no jurisdiction over yet since they'd have to admit it works first...)
Frittersfritters on November 13th, 2007 08:16 pm (UTC)
I'm afraid Calgary is still the closest airport. Can you land without a runway in that thing?
postrophe on November 14th, 2007 01:24 am (UTC)
Sorta the reason I thought it up.. (If I have to I'll use the lake and let the locals think it's some kinda fancy ski hydroplane that came upriver.)

Once we drove from Toronto to Windsor with the cat in the car. It took us two days to coax her out from under the back seat. She spent the following week inside the couch. Have a good trip :)
Frittersfritters on November 13th, 2007 08:21 pm (UTC)
Thanks! The cats are thankfully pretty used to this by now.

Gotta go, we're losing time and I've finished my latte ^_^
Robyn Goodfellow: star anaisrobyngoodfellow on November 14th, 2007 02:37 am (UTC)
I will absolutely be there. It's a bit chilly, so I've already docked the yacht for the winter, and I'll have to come up in the limo. I'll tell Eduardo to have it washed. Oh, and did you want me to bring anything from the wine cellar?
Fritters: Ed Peering by Frittersfritters on November 14th, 2007 07:13 am (UTC)
Can you bring a couple of dessert wines to enjoy over the weekend? When do you have to leave?
Robyn Goodfellow: xmasrobyngoodfellow on November 14th, 2007 04:15 pm (UTC)
You know, I absolutely had to take the rest of the year off. It's really just too tedious here around the holidays. Not to mention it's terribly difficult to run a business while flying all over the globe looking for good Christmas presents.

Tell me honestly, do you prefer Tiffany's or Bergdorf's?
Frittersfritters on November 14th, 2007 04:52 pm (UTC)
Tiffany's, but honestly more out of tradition than actual quality. I still get most things from catalogs, though, the selection is just better.

So how long will you be staying in the guest room?
Robyn Goodfellow: dear ljrobyngoodfellow on November 15th, 2007 04:15 am (UTC)
Probably until I wear out my welcome.
